Blood of Tyrants

Blood of Tyrants
by Naomi Novik

This is the eighth book in the Temeraire series by author Naomi Novik. This story starts out with a shipwreck which leaves our hero with amnesia on a foreign shore. Separating Captain Laurence from his beloved dragon, Temeraire, and putting him into a dangerous situation from the beginning of the book made this novel stand out as one of the best in the series for me. We are drawn back into the Napoleonic wars and thrown into battle once more -- with a Captain who doesn't remember how to fight with dragons anymore! The book ends with a cliffhanger which will undoubtedly be followed by more books in this series. -- recommended by Kim J. - Bennett Martin Public Library
