In Temeraire, valiant warriors rise to Britains defense by taking to the skies--not aboard aircraft, but atop the mighty backs of fighting dragons.Thanks to thousands of years of domestication, dragons have come to be used as fighting forces around the globe. Englands own aviators can outfly any other nation, but Napoleons dragons outnumber theirs two to one. So Capt. Will Laurence is pleased when his ship captures a French frigate and its precious cargo, a dragon egg...until the black hatchling unexpectedly chooses to bond with him. As master of the noble dragon he names Temeraire, Laurence must leave his beloved Navy and report for training in the remote coverts of the Aerial Corps. Together, the pair will undergo a crash course in the daring tactics of airborne battle until, as Bonapartes own dragon forces rally to breach british lines, Laurence and Temeraire soar into their baptism of fire.
