    Book Review - Crucible of Gold by Naomi Novik - August 26, 2013

  • Fullerton Public Library

    Naomi Novik's beloved series returns, with Captain Will Laurence and his fighting dragon Temeraire once again taking to the air against the broadsides of Napoleon's forces and the friendly--and sometimes not-so-friendly--fire of British soldiers and politicians who continue to suspect them of divided loyalties, if not outright treason.

    "Crucible of Gold" by Naomi Novik - Newly allied with the powerful African empire of the Tswana, the French have occupied Spain and brought revolution and bloodshed to Brazil, threatening Britain’s last desperate hope to defeat Napoleon. Britain has decided Laurence and Temeraire have the best chance at negotiating a peace with the Tswana, who have besieged the Portuguese royal family in Rio—and offer to reinstate Laurence to his former rank and seniority. (Book Seven of the Temeraire series)
