Tragedy has struck His Majesty’s Aerial Corps, whose magnificent fleet of fighting dragons and their human captains valiantly defend England’s shores against the encroaching armies of Napoleon Bonaparte. An epidemic of unknown origin and no known cure is decimating the noble dragons’ ranks—forcing the hopelessly stricken into quarantine. Now only Temeraire and a pack of newly recruited dragons remain uninfected—and stand as the only means of an airborne defense against France’s ever bolder sorties.

Bonaparte’s dragons are already harrowing Britain’s ships at sea. Only one recourse remains: Temeraire and his captain, Will Laurence, must take wing to Africa, whose shores may hold the cure to the mysterious and deadly contagion. On this mission there is no time to waste, and no telling what lies in store beyond the horizon or for those left behind to wait, hope, and hold the line.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Sonny | 2/15/2014

    " I liked this book the best of the series so far. It was full of suspenseful action and very hard to put down. See my comments for His Majesty's Dragon for more information about the overall series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Nina | 1/16/2014

    " Perhaps the best Temeraire one so far, as it deals with larger moral themes (slavery, etc.) without hitting you over the head. I ripped through this in < 3 hours. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Deborah | 1/4/2014

    " I listened to this one, as the narrator was this year's "Voice of Choice" from Booklist. He was fantastic, though I didn't particularly like the way either Laurence or Temeraire were voiced. I'd gotten a little bored with this series, but this book renewed my interest, and it was great for an audio format. But I can't believe how Novik ended it! I'm going to have to go right out and get the next one. "

    " This one jumped the shark a little bit in my mind, with the whole lost-civilization thing and all. Maybe it's an homage. Still a fun read, just not quite up to the standards of the rest of the series. "
