League of Dragons

By Naomi Novik

For Adults

Literature & Fiction

Recommended by: Paul


The seventh and final novel in Naomi Novik's Temeraire series. These books have been described as a combination of Patrick O'Brian, Anne McCaffrey, and Jane Austen, and that is a fairly apt description. An alternate history version of the Napoleonic Wars, a fantasy universe is presented where sentient dragons participate in battle and bond with their human captains for life. The personalities of the dragons are wonderfully drawn, and every bit as detailed as their human counterparts. These books are extremely enjoyable and well-written, and the mix of fantasy and historical fiction should appeal to fans of both genres.
