    3.5 5 stars I m not sure yet how I feel about the series as a whole, but I ve found myself picking up these novels for a very specific Temeraire fix, if that makes sense The books are all fairly similar but the highlight continues to be the dragons This novel had them exploring the Australian Outback basically on the periphery of the Napoleonic War again , and even though not much happened, per se, I still enjoyed the interplay between the dragons and humans I m not ...

    I have been a pretty good fan of this series, but unfortunately, I ve grown tired of it by now.This isn t dragons against Napoleon any This isn t an intrigue in China This is exile to Australia Long treks, dragon eggs, and filler await us Maybe it s because I took almost a decade to return to the series or I burned out, but this didn t capture m...

    October 2010Tongues of Serpents brings William Laurence, his dragon Temeraire, their friends Granby and Iskierka, and three dragon eggs, to the colony of Sydney in New South Wales but not for long The governor of New South Wales has been overthrown, but Laurence is in no mood for politics Instead, Laurence and Granby agree to take their dragons, along with the first egg hatched to one of Laurence s old rivals, Captain Rankin, on a simple mission into Australia s interior There, the second egg is stolen and everything falls to pieces Seriously The book just trips over its own feet and breaks its nose It s not a pretty sight I was dismayed, at the end of Victory of Eagles, to see Laurence and Temeraire exiled to Australia Although they had committed treason against the Crown well intentioned treason, but treason nonetheless , I expected that their actions defending England from Napoleon s invasion would have earned them a pardon That didn t happen, and they were shipped away to Australia and away from England, the Aerial Corps, and most importantly, the War Surely this was the end of the series, and a bleak end at that Seriously, what would happen in Australia Nothing much Minor political squabbles, which Laurence thankfully avoided minor smuggling issues, which Laurence and Temeraire followed for most of the book until the lackluster conclusion and a really long, really drawn out, really boring and pointless chase sequenc...

    I have said previously that Naomi Novik hasn t hit a sour note, nor made a wrong step throughout her Temeraire series I guess this is what I get for speaking too soon Naomi Novik is still an extremely consistent writer, and whenever I ve picked up a Temeraire book I ve had a remarkably accurate idea of what to expect from the novel Simply put, however, this one was the exception and it proved to be a bit of a disappointment It s the smallest Temeraire book, yet it felt like it was the longest because I started waiting for it to get over It is, by far, the weakest of the series.Now I ll make a confession I have a sorta kinda not so secret crush on Naomi Novik Is it the cute glass wearing nerdy look she has going on, combined with her devotion to nerdy things like DD Sure, sure Of course Is it also those previous traits combined with an adorable interest in the Napoleonic era which happens to be a favorite of mine too Yep Absolutely All are contributors to my fan crush on her BUT still the biggest draw to her is that she is a woman who isn t afraid to use my favorite punctuation mark The Semicolon I love semicolons When an English professor tells you not to use a se...

    This is as well written as the earlier books, with great dialogue, and I very much enjoyed the characters But the story is a little dull, particularly in comparison with the previous book Our heroes spend most of the time traipsing around in Australia in the middle of nowhere.I didn t see much point to the plot, and the Aviators seemed disorganized and unprofessional an impression I don t remember getting from the earlier books It s also beginning to seem odd that Europe is the only place in the world where dragons are used only for warfare, and used inefficiently at that.I read Patrick O Brian s The Mauritius Command not long ago, and it was neat to see both the N r ide and the Otter show up here I also enjoyed the de...

    Dear Naomi Novik, First of all, Java is located in Indonesia Most importantly, there was no Indonesia yet during the Napoleonic Era Using the name Dutch Indies would be appropriate.Secondly, is this just a filler between Victory of Eagles and the next book It surely feels like it sigh Thirdly, could you please stop writing about long tedious journeys Going through the Silk Road in book 3 and Africa road trip in book 4 were exhausting enough Fourthly, thank you for bringing fresh new characters in the form of quirky dragonets They almost made me forget about Lily, Maximus, Nitidus, Perscitia and the gang Last but not least, I d really love to ...

    3.5 stars.This will be quite a short review as I am honestly running out of things to say about this series And at 6 books in I feel like people are either committed to reading the series till the end so my opinion will probably make little difference or they ve already abandoned the series already and so are probably not even looking at reviews anyway.Although I still enjoyed this book it felt a lot like a filler in the series ...

    Wow boring Pretty sure I could have skipped this one and not missed much at all I still love Temeraire though.

    Rankin and Caesar were predictably insufferable, and it seems like Laurence and Temeraire are stuck in Australia for the foreseeable future I very much liked seeing Demane take charge of Kulingile And gosh but I missed Simon Vance s voice.

    How can you possibly make a story about the first days of Australian colonization boring Well, ToS is how The beginning of Tongues of Serpents was dreadful slow paced, political in the most uninteresting ways, and action that falls short of it s rich setting.I mean, come on This is the wild and untamed Australia And all the characters spend doing for half the book is chasing people across the vast landscape Sure there are some killer earthworms, but even then, it was just so hard to care Novik makes poor use of her magnificent setting, too, which was the greatest shame.The latter part of the book does get better It is still political, but in a good way The most fascinating part of this series is how the existence of dragons effects colonialism and slave trade Considering that while continent of Africa, and countries Brazil, Australia and I guess the US colonies may not be as technologically advanced, their dragons are superior Mostly thanks to the fact that all of them actually respect their dragons and treat them with care and reverence, rather than convenient deadly animals, to be used and then discarded Meaning, the African tribes band together to destroy the slave trade and even go as far as going after the Colonists to return their people.But this got me curious about how ...
