This book has two sections, the first being the escape from Japan and the second being Laurence’s mission to bring hundreds of dragons from China to bolster the Russian army. Travelers went past on the nearby road. For to the west, another, wider conflagration looms. With very little exploration of the new cultures and countries visited, and a shamefully lame plot for the first pages, I can say it was almost a waste of my time to read this.
The stand of trees gave onto a road, well-maintained tyrantss showing the signs of heavy use, recent tracks and disturbed dust.
Blood of Tyrants
The amnesia plotline that begin I really enjoyed Blood of Tyrants. We see the frustration of trying to account for all the logistics involved in dragon warfare. He might have aged years since he had seen himself last. Temeraire, meanwhile, works with the other dragons of his formation to put to rights the Potentatetheir dragon transport, tryants has run aground on a reef during a storm. I won’t say any more, as I don’t want to risk spoilers, but I am already wishing I had the next book.

He followed Junichiro out and down the hall, back to the small chamber where he had awoken. But it’s was not the dragon, it was Laurence himself. He rested it across his knees and leaned back against the tree, half-drifting.
But I think this book has finally made him a true aviator, because he made that choice again. These ‘beasts’ could teach us a lot if we let them.
I must have been swept overboard, is the only possible answer. But there is an ongoing problem throughout the book- the secondary characters. He all but hurled the door shut, the frame rattling on its track, and Laurence could only stare after his shadow disappearing on the other side of the translucent wall.
The final section of the novel, set in Russia, has a nostalgic call back to Black Powder War, and a much darker ytrants than nivik rest of the book. If there is anything you require for your comfort, Junichiro will see it is done. You are more dangerous than Bonaparte in your own way, you and that beast of yours.
