With the acclaimed Temeraire novels, New York Times bestselling author Naomi Novik has created a fantasy series like no other. Now, with LEAGUE OF DRAGONS, Novik brings the imaginative tour-de-force that has captivated millions to an unforgettable finish. Napoleons invasion of Russia has been roundly thwarted. But even as Capt. William Laurence and the dragon Temeraire pursue the retreating enemy through an unforgiving winter, Napoleon is raising a new force, and hell soon have enough men and dragons to resume the offensive. While the emperor regroups, the allies have an opportunity to strike first and defeat him once and for all if internal struggles and petty squabbles dont tear them apart. Aware of his weakened position, Napoleon has promised the dragons of every country and the ferals, loyal only to themselves vast new rights and powers if they fight under his banner. It is an offer eagerly embraced from Asia to Africa and even by England, whose dragons have long rankled at their disrespectful treatment. But Laurence and his faithful dragon soon discover that the wily Napoleon has one more gambit at the ready one that that may win him the war, and the world.

Recensioner i media

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. THE TELEGRAPH 'In the best tradition of fantasy, historical fiction and nautical novels.' GUARDIAN
