His Majesty's Dragon (Temeraire, Book 1)

His Majesty's Dragon - Naomi Novik 4.5 stars

This is an immensely entertaining read! A thoroughly satisfying romp through dragon inhabited England during the Napolionic Wars. The focus is on world discovery and not the actual intricacies of warfare. But do not fret, several battles do occur and are well described they're just not the main portion of the book.

I absolutely loved the main characters as they make their way through mutual discovery, through training and finally to the front lines of His Majesties Aerial Corp!
