Sad to see this end.

I wasn't ready for this series to end in 2016 and honestly, I wasn't ready for it to end now either. But the audiobook was available from my library and I wanted closure. I did read the wiki for the previous book to quickly refresh my memory since it'd been so long. Everything I wanted and expected. I LOVE Temeraire so, so very much. He the social justice warrior of my heart. I wanted to shout "DRAG HIM" when he takes down imperialist BS. My notes are basically shouting about the dragons with lots of exclamation points. But here's the 0ther notes I made between all that: --Aw, Tem with PTSD. Poor baby :( ---JANE!!! --The sex scene was adorable TBH. --Really devastated and sad for it to end, but it was concluded perfectly, brilliantly. --Jumps between Part 2 & 3, and Part 3 and 4 were discombobulating, especially when I was so used to this series describing each step of the way. --Dragonling threw me for a loop. Part of me liked her better as an egg, but she's intelligent, cunning, and a good spice up. It's too bad Tem is outshined in the manipulation and maneuvering by the female relatives of his, lol. --Good job stepping up Lawerance! He's making moves. --OMG, Tem trying to clean - lol!. --Tem's rivalry with Lien basically evaporates and was really disappointing. --If ONE thing changed towards the end, I would've turned coat for Napoleon as well TBH. --Aww Tharkey.

I have read the entire enjoyable series. I will miss Laurence & Tremeraire and secretly hope that Novik will reconsider & bring the characters & their cohorts back sometime in the near future.

League of Dragons (Temeraire, #9) by Naomi Novik The War has ravaged the world as Napoleon has bled the continent of men and dragons, his failed attempt at taking Britain, his conquest of Europe has lead to a retreat into Russia. Napoleon has turned the feral dragons into a force of confusion and desolation and Temeraire and Laurence have much to do to repair the damage. This is a difficult time in their world, in their friendship and in their mission. Their opinion of the treatment of the dragons in Europe will make their alliances stronger. The greatest challenge is in the birth of Temeraire’s egg. This is a great step in the series that will make the world change on the turn of a dragon’s wing.

The series really captures the imagination. This was an excellent end to the series. It felt true to the characters and to the fictional history as well. We are introduced to a few new characters that add realism to this fantastic tale. It was a wonderful read.

The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is simply because I am so disappointed to see it end. She ends it without us knowing what precisely lays in store for our main characters, which although still a well rounded ending was also slightly lackluster. I still love the series and with a heart full of hope will wait for future books with Laurence and temeraire

This series was a delight to read. Each character terms was well done, dragons included. Many of the dragons had egos larger than Napoleon...and even The Donald. I hope Ms Novik contest to write novels as interesting as those on this series.

It is with much sadness and reluctance that I read the last book in Novik’s Temeraire series, League of Dragons. We’ve laughed, cried and been touched by the dragon and his captain and their adventures will surely be missed. The final push to eliminate Napoleon has lead our heroes to perilous place. They must recover Temeraire’s egg and defeat Napoleon once and for all. Novik’s writing is vibrant, this dragon filled world jumps off the pages. I can’t help but find myself absorbed into plot. That being said, I was hoping for more… After all these years of following these adventures there wasn’t the closure I needed to put this story to rest. And, in an effort to avoid spoiler, I’m going to have to leave it at that. All in all, this has been a grand adventure that I’m thrilled I took it. I highly recommend this series and League of Dragons to any historical fantasy fan. I received this ARC copy of League of Dragons from Random House Publishing Group - Ballantine - Del Rey in exchange for a honest review.
