Temeraire, Book 1

Fantasy; Alternate History

"Captain Will Laurence captures a dragon egg from a French ship. The Chinese dragon hatches and bonds with him, their relationship is like father and child. The dragon bred for emperors can speak and reason. He leaves the Navy for the understaffed Aerial Corps."

From Jim's review: Imagine a Patrick O’Brien novel only with dragons and you’ll have an idea what to expect from Novik’s book.
