Not a assassin story

I think that the story in this book was really slow. Not much of a development of the characters, not much of plot twist, not much of anything really.
The title itself is a joke. We have a character that is kind of learning to become an assassin but doesn't want it and doesn't do any assassing at all. There is just a lot of complaining and no action.

Through all the book I change which creatures I would like to get the planet. The two groups in space got quite boring and lengthy at times. The evolution of the creatures on the planet got more and more interesting the longer into the book I got.
Over all I think the book was quite boring and quite lengthy. I had heard so much good and hype about this book, maybe that was why I did not like it. I will not continue this series.

Quite a entertaining story. I like the magic system and I like the characters.
The story itself was a bit slow but I can see the whole serie might be good. It was a good start to a story but by itself a bit boring. This book is quite describing so the second might be better when we already know the world and the real story can begin.

This book was really great. It was a good first book in a series. Great world-building. Even if not much is happening in this book you get a great understanding of the characters, the world and the politics. Like I said a great first book.
In this book we met Temeraire and Laurence and see how their relationship grow and see how the world as an aviator (dragonflyer/dragon captain) looks like.
Their are some twist that is actually surprises in this book but the core and the heart of the story is the relationship of Temeraire and Laurence.

Just fine

I did not really care for this story. First I thought it was quite a good idea but it got boring fast. The love interests I could live without.

Oh my God!
This is a fantastic book. This is my favorite book of the year, and at least top 5 of my all-time favorite book.
I didn't thought that I would like it, but I loved it.
The story was exciting. The voice actors was fantastic. The music and all around sound really made the story more intense.

Just fine

A fine story. I don't think it was that action packed but it was still entertaining.

A lot happens in this book but I don't remember much of it. The story was good and interesting but not that memorable. There was a few plot twist but not really a good build up to it, so the twist fell a bit flat. It was more a "oh, okey. Oh well." kind of feeling when the twists happened.
I liked most of the characters. I like the narrator. But I think the world might be a little bit boring. Might not read the next book, not sure yet.

Sadly not as good as I hoped.
There was a lot of good and interesting parts but there was a lot of slow parts to. I liked all the characters, the magic was interesting but a bit confusing, the idea of the story was good and the narrator was good. The thing that lower the overall score is the slow parts, which I think there was too much of.

Good story with hard names

The story was really good and interesting. I like how the story is read though different perspectives.
I had a real hard time with the names in this book. It was hard to know whose perspective it was. When one character talked about another character I had a very hard time knowing who that was, because of the hard names.
I don't think that the story slowed down really at any point in this book, but of course some part was more action packed but non was slow.
The narrator was really good, and had different voices for different characters.
