Publisher's Summary

After their fateful adventure in China, Captain Will Laurence of His Majesty's Aerial Corps and his extraordinary dragon, Temeraire, are waylaid by a mysterious envoy bearing urgent new orders from Britain. Three valuable dragon eggs have been purchased from the Ottoman Empire, and Laurence and Temeraire must detour to Istanbul to escort the precious cargo back to England. Time is of the essence if the eggs are to be borne home before hatching.

Yet disaster threatens the mission at every turn, thanks to the diabolical machinations of the Chinese dragon Lien, who blames Temeraire for her master's death and vows to ally herself with Napoleon and take vengeance. Then, faced with shattering betrayal in an unexpected place, Laurence, Temeraire, and their squad must launch a daring offensive. But what chance do they have against the massed forces of Bonaparte's implacable army?

Dragon tales: don't miss the rest of the Temeraire series, including Book 1: His Majesty's Dragon and Book 2: Throne of Jade.

    "Loved the dragons and the people"

    I really like this series, and hope the audio of books four and five will come out quickly. It's so nice to have such an original and convincing world. The narrator is clear and pleasant, and characterizes the different accents, dragon and human, well.Just when I need distraction these books are absorbing, fast paced and easy to follow.
