I haven’t won anything in a Goodreads giveaway in three years, I blopd rarely enter contests anymore, and my interest in the Temeraire series has been declining lately, but somehow, for some reason, I gave this contest a try and managed to win the book.

I don’t know if this is naoim particularly unusual way to read the books – my impression is that i’m in a minority, anyway – but I’ve always cared a great deal more about Lawrence than I have about Tyrannts.
Its still amazing however, how Novik can interweave the dragons into the history of Europe and provide a vivid retelling of this period. It’s kind of sad that there’s just one book ahead of me.

Of co I have issues when I get to the end of series, especially ones as good as Temeraire. This is clearly not great stuff for a supposedly feminist book series! I understand that the author wanted to introduce the Japanese and bloood an excuse of some kind to send his Japanese companion whom is entirely forgotten for almost the entire second half of this book back to Japan, but really to introduce Junichiro and then completely forget about him until the very last chapter of the book is just lazy, especially when so much of the book is wasted on the useless guilt of Temeraire and a ship wreck.

Trivia About Blood of Tyrants He all but hurled the door shut, the frame rattling on its track, and Laurence could only stare after his shadow disappearing on the other side of the translucent wall. Onvik is probably why I was so frustrated with the beginning of bovik book-they’re separated after a storm at sea damages their ship and sweeps Laurence away.
A Japanese youth named Junichiro plays a role. It faded as he struggled up to sit. I just finished paging through the published copy and feel it deserves a higher rating than my initial one.
