Dragons, who cares about dragons right?

I was never a dragon person, whenever saw a dragon book I would dismiss it without a scone thought. I had read dragon and had never honestly liked it so I thought ok one last try... And holy temeraire was blown away, just a perfect mix of true history with that enveloping fantasy of dragons just seemed to carry me away on a journey. before I knew it I had read "In His Majesty's Service" cover to cover in 4 hours just pondering wether or not I should go drive and get the next one right away or eat lunch first. Amzing novel, fantastically wrote, thank you Naomi for such a fantastic book. I will have to look forward to keeping track with all your books to come!

    Although the author is a good writer, the number of dragon death

    Although the author is a good writer, the number of dragon deaths and the explicit details of their deaths and cruelty toward them became too heart-wrenching and sickening to continue reading. I certainly hope Peter Jackson isn't going to make these books into movies because the dragon deaths and human abuse of dragons will be even more unbearable on screen. Once you round out the dragons as personalities, I don't know too many people who will want to watch - or in this case read about - the senseless carnage and brutal deaths.
