A review by kittenscribble
Throne of Jade, by Naomi Novik


Historical fantasy, second in the Temeraire trilogy. Captain Laurence, having grudgingly accepted dragon Temeraire into his life, is unwilling to give him up when the Chinese come a-calling to reclaim him. Brilliant work of adapting eighteenth-century technology and politics to a Napoleonic-era world with dragons, and the adaptation of Chinese culture is fascinating.
