The third Temeraire novel, chronicling the party’s voyage home from China. I love these books, they are really great. Temeraire and Captain Lawrence have invaded my dreams and are welcome there. If you’ve read the others this is no disappointment; if you haven’t, what are you waiting for? They are terrific.
2. Throne of Jade
3. Black Powder War
Before Captain Will Laurence can prepare his crew for the slow voyage home from China, new orders arrive for him and his dragon, Temeraire: they must fly home immediately, stopping only in Istanbul to collect three priceless dragon eggs, purchased by the British government from the Ottoman Empire.
But the cross-continental journey is fraught with danger; not only will they have to scale mountains and traverse vast hostile deserts, but a Machiavellian herald precedes them, spreading political menace in her wake. Holding Temeraire responsible for the death of her princely companion, Lien has absconded from China consumed by vengeance. If she can, she will destroy everything and everyone Temeraire loves.
