Blood of Tyrants is the eighth and penultimate book in the Temeraire series. I enjoyed it equally as much as the previous books, although a little more unevenly. I was fully engrossed for the first 75% or so, but I occasionally felt restless toward the end. Some of the early events, though occas...

And man, I just loved this novel. I know that this isn't for everyone - amnesia trope, by the way - but I've loved it since I fell in love with the X-Men, and Wolverine in particular. I also love how well Novik does hurt/comfort, two tropes that are well used in fanfiction. It should be noted th...

I loved it so much that I haven't really been interested in anything else since I finished it. So much, that I'm only happy reading the series over from the start. Dragons in 1812 Japan, China, and Russia! Dragons! I say!Library copy

First off, let me start with the important stuff: am I the only one shipping a romance between Captain Laurence and Emily Roland's duenna? Second, this book is a must read for any who've been following the entire series, but not a good place for new readers to pick up the action. I'm told this is th...

I guess i'm the only person who didn't mind the amnesia plot? Given that the Temeraire books are not exactly a font of deep and introspective characterization, even a fairly cheap device like amnesia was fairly effective at wringing some out. I don't know if this is a particularly unusual way to rea...
