SummaryAdd a Summary
William Laurence, prestigious naval captain, captures a French vessel in 1804 which is carrying a rare dragon egg. The creature hatches and bonds to Laurence, who hesitantly names him Temeraire and resigns himself to the sacrifice of life in the Aerial Corps (who are considered to be rowdy and undisciplined). However, even as he is shocked by the female captains and loose formality of the Corps, Laurence comes to form a deep bond with Temeraire, and the inseparable pair and their new friends serve Britain through the war. Daring adventure and fascinating characters abound.
A captain who is part of the Queen's Navy discovers a dragon egg aboard a french ship. The egg hatches and the dragon, amazingly, attaches to the captain, who must now become an aviary.
