    One of the Best Historical Fantasy novels

    When I read the synopsis of this series I was instantly drawn. The Napoleonic War but with dragons? Sounds good. That was an understatement. This series is a beautiful story of an unlikely friendship. Every character has his/her own story or personality making the story more real. When reading I sometimes forget that wait, there are no such things as dragons. But this book describes life with dragons in such a sensible and realistic way it really makes you believe there are such things as dragons in wars. The main characters are so strong and independent and amazing. The two main make me laugh, cry, and really feel touched by such a beautiful friendship. And it isn't a human animal story, you are reminded that it is a human dragon relationship but its not absurd like how some animal human friendships are. The story is so grabbing its hard to put the book down. You get so involved with the story and so emotional for the characters you easily get sucked in and feel the same emotions as the characters. I recommend this to any reader. If you like fantasy, history, fiction or even non-fiction. The writing is lovely, the story is amazing, and the characters become your family. One of my favorite books of all time.

    A Fantastical Rewrite of History

    This is one of the best series I have ever read! I can't imagine why only one other person has deigned to write a review when Peter Jackson, director of "The Lord of the Ring" film series is trying to produce these as blockbusters, which they will be.<BR/><BR/>Naomi Novik has taken a very exciting part of history few in the U.S. have ever bothered with and injected into it new life by imagining that the Napoleonic wars included the aerial warfare of--dragons. It seems that all men love epic battles, and all women love dragons, so why haven't more people read these books? The protagonist, an aviator committed to one dragon for life, is as romantic a hero and military man as anybody could ever want--and women are aviators, too! Novik writes with strength, tenderness, and wit. Don't people read anymore???? I can't recommend another product like this, because there isn't another product like this. Yes, it's also history (here gag with a spoon if you must), but it's also fantasy. It's just brilliant; go forth and READ it.
