Reviewed in the United States on August 10, 2009
This book was a bit different from the "fantasy" books that I typically read, but since it was a free Kindle download I decided to give it a try. I was hooked by the story right away, but at the same time, turned off by how black-and-white the characters were, as well as how stiff the dialog came across. The only character that seemed at all believable, or even human, was ironically Temeraire the Dragon. Also, the battle scenes crawled along until they came to an abrupt climax & resolution, leaving you feeling as if you missed something.

I'll be reading another volume or two of this series, in hopes that her writing style has improved enough to support an otherwise enjoyable storyline.
