Book Report: His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik

IMG_4475I loved this book. It’s set during the Napoleonic wars, and it reads like it was written then, down to the punctuation. The main character had all the sensibilities of an upper class man of his time. He felt like he walked off the pages of a navy captain’s journal.

And then there were dragons inserted seamlessly into the world.

I can’t recommend this too highly. It’s so far above something like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

My kind of “historical” fiction!

Happy Yarning.

  1. I also really enjoyed it, but I have to offer warning because of your previous comments about being a prude: the sequels remove any ambiguity from the intimate nature of the protagonist’s relationship with the female captain. I regretfully discontinued the series after that, so I don’t know what else develops.
