I want, and do not want Naomi Novik’s League of Dragons to come out. I want it to come out because it is a Temeraire novel (which is to say, a military historical novel about dragons in Napoleonic-era England and the British aerial corps that takes them to war); but I do not want it to come out because then the series will be finished. Patrick O’Brian had this problem himself, as I recall. Patrick O’Brian would have also loved this series.
And so, adieu to Flashman and the Mountain of Light. I also think that George MacDonald Fraser would have enjoyed this series, but a good deal more gruffly.
