THRONE OF JADE
Genre: Fantasy, Historical
This fantastic second volume of the Temeraire series opens with Captain Will Laurence facing off against members of the British military and representatives of the Chinese emperor over the fate of the dragon Temeraire, who has, up until this point, valiantly defended England from Napoleon's military might. However, this is about to change.
The Chinese are demanding that Temeraire -- or, as they know him, Lung Tien Qian -- be repatriated to China unaccompanied by Laurence. Laurence and Temeraire quite rightly refuse this demand and, eventually, the Chinese allow Laurence to accompany Temeraire
Once again, Novik has created a cracking good story jam-packed with interesting ideas and wonderful characters.
