TONGUES OF SERPENTS
Picking up where the 2008 Victory of Eagles left off, this is an engaging and well-paced story. As usual, the highlight is the relationship between Will Laurence and his dragon, Temeraire. One of the best things about these books is Novik’s decision to make her dragons as intelligent — or, in some cases, more intelligent — than the humans.
Transported to Australia after being convicted of treason, Laurence and Temeraire are at loose ends after they arrive — the government of the prison colony is unclear, as the military governor (William Bligh, most recently of the HMS Bounty) has been exiled to an island and is awaiting word on his fate.
