Publisher's Summary

Aerial combat brings a thrilling new dimension to the Napoleonic Wars as valiant warriors rise to Britain's defense by taking to the skies - not aboard aircraft but atop the mighty backs of fighting dragons. When HMS Reliant captures a French frigate and seizes its precious cargo - an unhatched dragon egg - fate sweeps Captain Will Laurence from his seafaring life into an uncertain future and an unexpected kinship with a most extraordinary creature. Thrust into the rarified world of the Aerial Corps as master of the dragon Temeraire, he will face a crash course in the daring tactics of airborne battle. For as France's own dragon-borne forces rally to breach British soil in Bonaparte's boldest gambit, Laurence and Temeraire must soar into their own baptism of fire.

Excellent version of a great book

I was lucky enough to get a free copy of this story as an ebook and loved it so much that I bought the rest of the series.

So I hoped that this audio book would live upto the standard of the origional. I wasn't disapointed.

The narrator took the effort to bring the book alive and allowed you to immerse yourself in the story.

I only have one slight quible with the voice he used for Temeraire didn't sound as I would imagine a very large dragon to sound

Napoleonic Sea Battles with Dragons

You will find it hard to beat this mix of historic based storyline with a fantasy twist.

The narrator makes each character come alive with clearly defended voices you could imagine being real.

When this series was recommended to me I was immediately interested, after listening to the first three stories I can not wait for Audible to obtain the 4th book.

What more can I say, any book which includes broad siding an enemy ship and dragons gets my vote.

These books are well worth a read.
