Re: Recommendations for novels to read...

I am hooked on a series where the premise is "What if the Napoleonic War had dragons in it?" The premise of the Temeraire novels is that a sea captain (like from Master and Commander, or the other Golden Age of Sail epics) captures a French ship carrying a priceless Chinese dragon egg. So, he has to leave the Navy to be the captain of a dragon - and that is a major social step down.

It's like a mix of Jane Austen, swashbuckler stories, and historical battle fiction. With dragons in. It's pretty awesome.

There are 5 so far. The writing of 6 got held up because the author had a lovely baby girl instead of a novel. She named the baby Evidence - but I'm trying not to judge.
