For Britain, conditions are grim: Napoleon’s resurgent forces have breached the Channel and successfully invaded English soil. Napoleon’s prime objective is the occupation of London. Unfortunately, the dragon Temeraire has been removed from military service–and his captain, Will Laurence, has been condemned to death for treason. Separated by their own government and threatened at every turn by Napoleon’s forces, Laurence and Temeraire must struggle to find each other amid the turmoil of war. If only they can be reunited, master and dragon might rally Britain’s scattered resistance forces and take the fight to the enemy as never before–for king and country, and for their own liberty.

As Napoleon attacks Britain, Captain Will Laurence languishes on a prison ship, accused of treason, while his dragon, Temeraire, is consigned to breeding grounds in Wales, until Laurence escapes and sets out on a quest to reunite with his partner, who heads up a dragon-resistance force. Reprint.

This is the 5th book in the series and Novik continues to be thrilling to read! I loved Empire of Ivory the best, for reimagining what Africa and African History during the Napoleonic period would be like if some of the tribes had dragons. However, this book takes readers back to England, where Napoleon has successfully invaded and where Captain Will Laurence and Temeraire are separately imprisoned for treason. Lovely reunion -- fabulous aerial battles -- and Wellesley (to be named
Wellington with Temeraire's help!) is great fun!

This is by far my favorite book in the series. I have loved all the books so far. I love the Napoleonic era, and love fantasy. She has melded them together very well.
