Book Review: “Victory of Eagles” by Naomi Novik
After the events of the last book, Laurence has been found guilty of treason and is in jail. Temeraire has been placed in the breeding grounds and, if he does not behave, Laurence will be hanged.
Temeraire is continuing his quest for better living conditions for dragons in Britain and is making as many friends as he can of the rest of the dragons, and humans, at the breeding grounds.
Unfortunately, Napoleon has marshalled the power of his Army and Navy and is now invading Britain….yikes.
Temeraire and the dragons in the breeding grounds are without captains, but, Temeraire organizes them to fight on their own if needed.
They are needed.
As Napoleon’s army advances in Britain, the breeding ground dragons fight, and Laurence is let out of jail to lead all the dragons.
The war rages on, and……
Oh, to find out what happens, you will have to read the book.
“Victory of Eagles” is the 5th book in the Temeraire series and is a fast fun read filled with fierce battles of war and politics as Temeraire and Laurence are reunited and vow to never be separated again.
