Temeraire  - Naomi Novik Novik doesn't really bring anything new to the dragonrider genre, with the exception of the setting she chose. She also gives what I'd like to call "teasers" of the characters around Laurence and Temeraire that leaves me somewhat hanging.

But Laurence and Temeraire do keep me very well entertained, despite their shortcomings. "Temeraire" is by no means a perfect book, but it's definitely interesting and I can't wait to read the next book.
