"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
My eagerly anticipating pick this week is:
Series: Temeraire #9
Genre: Fantasy, Alternative History,
The final adventure in the New York Times bestselling Temeraire series that started with the beloved His Majesty’s Dragon which has won fans of Napoleonic-era military history, Anne McCaffrey’s Pern novels, and Patrick O’Brian’s seafaring adventures.
The deadly campaign in Russia has cost both Napoleon and those allied against him. Napoleon has been denied his victory…but at a terrible price. Lawrence and the dragon Temeraire pursue the fleeing French army back west, but are demoralized when Napoleon makes it back to Paris unscathed. Worse, they soon learn that the French have stolen Termeraire and Iskierka’s egg. Now, it is do or die, as our heroes not only need to save Temeraire’s offspring but also to stop Napoleon for good!
Okay, this is kind of cheating since it was released yesterday the 14th. But believe me, if I'd known about this sooner ya'll have heard about it for months. If you love Fantasy and/or dragons, have a flare for history, and would appreciate Tameraire's social justice fight, this series is perfect. And if not, read it anyways.
