"Naomi Novik's beloved series returns, with Capt. Will Laurence and his fighting dragon Temeraire once again taking to the air against the broadsides of Napoleon's forces and the friendly--and sometimes not-so-friendly--fire of British soldiers and politicians who continue to suspect them of divided loyalties, if not outright treason. For Laurence and Temeraire, put out to pasture in Australia, it seems their part in the war has come to an end just when they are needed most. Newly allied with the powerful African empire of the Tswana, the French have occupied Spain and brought revolution and bloodshed to Brazil, threatening Britain's last desperate hope to defeat Napoleon. So the British government dispatches Arthur Hammond from China to enlist Laurence and Temeraire to negotiate a peace with the angry Tswana, who have besieged the Portuguese royal family in Rio--and as bait, Hammond bears an offer to reinstate Laurence to his former rank and seniority as a captain in the Aerial Corps. Temeraire is delighted by this sudden reversal of fortune, but Laurence is by no means sanguine, knowing from experience that personal honor and duty to one's country do not always run on parallel tracks. Laurence and Temeraire--joined by the egotistical fire-breather Iskierka and the still-growing Kulingile, who has already surpassed Temeraire in size--embark for Brazil, only to meet with a string of unmitigated disasters that leave the dragons and their human friends forced to make an unexpected landing in the hostile territory of the Inca empire, where they face new unanticipated dangers. Now with the success of the mission balanced on a razor's edge, and failure looking more likely by the minute, the unexpected arrival of an old enemy will tip the scales toward ruin. Yet even in the midst of disaster, opportunity may lurk--for one bold enough to grasp it"--Provided by publisher.… (plus d'informations)

Far better than the last book in the series.

An interesting look at new societies and new types of dragon-human relations. ( )
  Andorion | Feb 6, 2021 |
Laurence is reinstated to the Aerial Corps as the powers that be figure he is the only one that can negotiate with the Tswana, whom he previously met during his travels in Africa. From Australia they set off for Brazil, where the Tswana are recovering their people stolen as slaves, they are shipwrecked, captured, escape, and end up in the Incan Empire. New dragons, a new dragon culture and new intrigues await as they try and make their way to Rio to complete their mission. This novel adds to the world of Temeraire by revealing yet another continent and more dragons (only Antarctica and North America remain unvisited by our heroes). ( )

On second reading, the first two-thirds of the book was kind of a slog, reminding me of the previous book in the series. It got better in the last third. It's also interesting to me that I forgot the entire plot of this book since reading it 15 months ago (and that it was *still* a slog despite that). ( )

Arthur Hammond prided himself on a certain degree of insensibility in the cause of duty - an indifference to physical discomfort and even to social awkwardness - a squelching of the natural repugnances, when these should interfere with the progress of a diplomatic mission.
