Inhaltsangabe

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 Captain 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 a baptism of fire.

Don't miss the rest of the Temeraire series:
Book 2: Throne of Jade and
Book 3: Black Powder War.

meh...

I bought this audiobook after reading "Uprooted" and "Spinning silver", because I craved for more good writing. The idea behind this book is interesting, but the writing, which tried to imitate period writing, is soooo pompous that it makes the story hard to follow and the characters perfectly uninteresting. It doesn't help that the reader is always keeping the same boring tone of voice even during bloodbaths
