Aerial combat brings a thrilling new dimension to the Napoleonic Wars as valiant warriors rise to Britain's defense by taking to the skies ... not aboard aircraft but atop the mighty backs of fighting dragons. When HMS Reliant captures a French frigate and seizes its precious cargo, an unhatched dragon egg, fate sweeps Capt. Will Laurence from his seafaring life into an uncertain future--and an unexpected kinship with a most extraordinary creature. Thrust into the rarified world of the Aerial Corps as master of the dragon Temeraire, he will face a crash course in the daring tactics of airborne battle. For as France's own dragon-borne forces rally to breach British soil in Bonaparte's boldest gambit, Laurence and Temeraire must soar into their own baptism of fire.… (més)
  1. 256
    Capità de mar i de guerra de Patrick O'Brian (lorax)
    lorax: The Napoleonic Wars, just with no dragons. Better-written than Hornblower and with much stronger characterization.
  2. 122
    Dragonflight de Anne McCaffrey (justjukka)
    justjukka: Both Novik and McCaffrey take great care in developing the worlds for their respective series. If you like one, you may very well like the other.
  3. 92
    Mr. Midshipman Hornblower de C. S. Forester (DWWilkin)
    DWWilkin: If you like the time period, no better way to start then with the first popular series about Age of Sail
  4. 71
    Leviathan de Scott Westerfeld (PghDragonMan, Caramellunacy)
    Caramellunacy: Both are alternate history/fantasy novels with a distinct nautical flair. His Majesty's Dragon is set during the Napoleonic Wars - just with dragons (obviously) as a sort of Air Navy - complete with crew. Leviathan is set during an alternate WWI between the Darwinists (who have living ships & weapons) and the Clankers (who use machines).… (més)

    The Dragon and the George de Gordon R. Dickson (infiniteletters)

    Airborn de Kenneth Oppel (elbakerone)
    elbakerone: Another interesting and well written historical fantasy.
  7. 63
    Jonathan Strange i el senyor Norrell de Susanna Clarke (ErlendSkjelten)
    ErlendSkjelten: Much heavier fare than Temeraire, but all the more enjoyable for it. The Napoleonic wars, with magicians instead of dragons.

    Dragonhaven de Robin McKinley (infiniteletters)
  9. 31
    Eon: Dragoneye Reborn de Alison Goodman (notemily)

    Lord of the Changing Winds de Rachel Neumeier (noneofthis)
  14. 10
    Midshipwizard Halcyon Blithe de James M. Ward (amysisson)
    amysisson: In this case, the dragon *is* the ship, and the main character is younger and less experienced, but otherwise they have a similar feel....
  15. 22
    Sorcery and Cecelia, or, The Enchanted Chocolate Pot de Patricia C. Wrede (carlyrose)
    carlyrose: A bit lighter and for perhaps a younger audience, but also an alternate history dealing with the Napoleonic Wars.

    The Dragon and the Thief de Gillian Bradshaw (TomWaitsTables)

    Elephant Company: The Inspiring Story of an Unlikely Hero and the Animals Who Helped Him Save Lives in World War II de Vicki Croke (2wonderY)

I'm not usually a YA fan, but I loved this book.

Imagine England vs France in the Napoleonic era - but both sides have dragons.

The story focuses on a dragon egg captured during a sea battle. When the dragon hatches, there is a very short period of time when the new dragon can bond with a handler - and none of the officers on the British ship want to be the chosen handler. It will mean a completely new life away from the sea - and essentially away from all of British society since the dragons live in remote locations.

Without giving any spoilers, the office who ends up as Temeraire's handler is at first devastated by the life changes this will require. But through the book the bond he forms with the dragon is truly heartwarming.

There's lots of adventure, air and sea battles. But the true story here is one of loyalty and love. ( )

Re-imagining of the Napoleonic wars but with dragons. Better than your average dragon book but not a patch on Novik's other books. ( )

Absolutely fantastic, right up my alley. The action scenes are incredible and the relationships between the Aviators and their dragons were a treat to read. Breezed through this and will definitely continue with the series. Shouldn't be surprised that Naomi Novik wrote a book I enjoy, I only wish I got to this sooner. ( )

Perhaps I'm simply over sensitive but I found this book disturbing. First you have the dragons, who are not human, but definitely sentient. They don't seem to possess any loyalty or ideals related to king and country, they serve out of an almost slavish love for their captains. They are bred, mistreated, held captive, and "broken to harness". Then, with great pain and suffering, the are made to fight for the ideals that their unquestioning captains possess.

I couldn't stomach it. It's sort of if a battle were written from the POV of the cavalry horse, and for me, it bears a parallel to dog-fighting. Found it morally disgusting. ( )
