9780007256754: Victory of Eagles (The Temeraire Series, Book 5) (Temeraire 5)

The fifth adventure of Captain William Laurence and his extraordinary fighting dragon, Temeraire, as they travel from the shores of Britain to China and Africa.

Laurence and Temeraire have betrayed the British. They have foiled their attempts to inflict death upon the French dragons by sharing the cure they found in Africa with their enemy.

But following their conscience has a price. Laurence feels he must return to face the consequences, and as soon as they land they are taken into custody. Laurence is condemned to the gallows and Temeraire faces a life of captivity in the breeding grounds. None of their friends or allies can come to their aid, for every hand is needed elsewhere.

Britain is completely unprepared for Bonaparte invasion and the advanced tactics of his own celestial dragon – Temeraire's mortal enemy – Lien.

Review:

‘These are beautifully written novels, not only fresh, original and fast-paced, but full of wonderful characters with real heart’
Peter Jackson

‘Novik won me over with her first novel...the combination of military history, sympathetic characters, and engaging style makes this series great, intelligent fun’
The Times

‘Plenty of intrigue, swordplay, exotic locations, plausible invention. In short a treat’
Telegraph

‘Novik has stirred the passions with a genre-busting historical fantasy of the first order'
Sunday Sport

'In the best tradition of fantasy, historical fiction and nautical novels'
Guardian

About the Author:

Naomi Novik was born in New York in 1973, a first-generation American, and raised on Polish fairy tales, Baba Yaga, and Tolkien. She studied English Literature at Brown University and Computer Science at Columbia University before leaving to work in the games industry. Over the course of a brief winter sojourn working on a game in Canada, she realized she preferred the writing to the programming, and, on returning to New York, decided to try her hand at novels. Temeraire is her first.
