Naomi Novik’s official site is http://www.temeraire.org and her <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naomi_Novik"bio on wikipedia says “Naomi Novik (30 April 1973 New York City) is a female American novelist. She is a first-generation American; her father is of Lithuanian Jewish ancestry, and her mother is an ethnic Pole. She studied English Literature at Brown University, and holds a Master’s degree in Computer Science from Columbia University. She participated in the design and development of the computer game Neverwinter Nights: Shadows of Undrentide, until she discovered that she preferred writing to game design. Novik is married to entrepreneur and writer Charles Ardai. They live in Manhattan.”
I really enjoyed the first few books in the Temeraire series, but the latest one wasn’t up to scratch. Hopefully the 7th will improve somewhat
Author: Naomi Novik
Temeraire series #5
I hesitated before starting this book, wondering if I should reread the others in the series, it has been a while after all. But I have so many books waiting to be read that I decided to jump straight in and hope that it would all come back to me. And it did, almost the second I started reading the first page the whole world of Temeraire came back to me and I remember just how enjoyable these books are.
For those of you who have never read any of these books the first thing you need to know is that they are set in Napoleonic Europe, England. And have dragons. It is like Sharp meets Pern. Only better.
