Information
Set amid the turmoil of the Napoleonic wars, Temeraire is a thrilling tale of one of the most dramatic chapters of European history with a brilliant veneer of bold fantasy.

As Napoleon's Grand Army tear Europe apart, his vast armada is poised to engage Admiral Nelson's smaller fleet and threaten Britain.

A French frigate is captured near Madeira. Within its hold lies a greater prize than the ship herself: a dragon egg. But even more astonishing than the dragonet (named Temeraire) are the documents found with him, addressed to the French from the greatest dragon-breeders in the world: the Chinese. For Temeraire was meant for the Emperor Napoleon himself ...
