His Majesty's Dragon (Temeraire Series #1)

His Majesty's Dragon - Naomi Novik A 4.5 star review."His Majesty's Dragon" is one of those books that I've had on my to-read list for AGES, but have never gotten around to. I think I first had it recommended to me in 2009 or 2010. I picked up the ebook version of it once or twice, but for some reason never got past the initial fight scene and had a COMPLETELY wrong impression of it.Last week I finally decided to download the audio version of it. Several of my friends rave about it, so I figured it was about time... and I was hooked immediately! I loved the story, loved Laurence and - most importantly - loved Temeraire. The idea of combining the Napoleonic wars with dragons was pure genius and gave a fascinating setting to what could otherwise have been a rather run-of-the-mill fantasy story.In style it reminded me of a mix between "Harper's Hall" by Anne McCaffrey and Liveship Traders by Robin Hobb - both among my favourite fantasy authors.I've already uploaded the next book to my mp3-player.
