Kindle fantasy novel: His Majesty's Dragon

Title: His Majesty's Dragon by Naomi Novik.


Description: Aerial combat brings a thrilling new dimension to the Napoleonic Wars as valiant warriors rise to Britain’s defense by taking to the skies . . . not aboard aircraft but atop the mighty backs of fighting dragons.

When HMS Reliant captures a French frigate and seizes its precious cargo, an unhatched dragon egg, fate sweeps Capt. Will Laurence from his seafaring life into an uncertain future–and an unexpected kinship with a most extraordinary creature. Thrust into the rarified world of the Aerial Corps as master of the dragon Temeraire, he will face a crash course in the daring tactics of airborne battle. For as France’s own dragon-borne forces rally to breach British soil in Bonaparte’s boldest gambit, Laurence and Temeraire must soar into their own baptism of fire.

Also free in other stores (could a mod fix the title, please?), this was first free in the Kindle store a bit over a year ago and has returned.

Click HERE to get the download from B&N.

Click HERE to launch the Sony Library software and get the book.

And it's a REALLY good story, too!! It forced me to go buy the next two in the series.

What a great shame.

Sounds a great series and one I would like to read, but being geographically restricted means a no go.

It is also available from Kobo. Here is the link

Note: You need to sign up for an account, and I think it is available for Europeans. Not sure if UK is included.

I managed to get the book through the Sony Shop.

Thanks for the heads up on this, looks a cracking read.

You couldn't post this little fact BEFORE I downloaded the free book ... loved it ... and then bought the remaining books in the series??!

Great marketing ploy- offer a great free book (the first in a series) and have the others readily available for purchase.

Works on me every time! Dang you authors [shakes fist]!

Yeah, I thought the book was that good, also.

Happy reading.

Heh. Told you so!

I'm glad you liked it, Marilyn. I'm eagerly awaiting the sixth book in the series, to be released next month. Temeraire is one of the best characters I've run across in a long time. I'm not really into slash, but Temeraire and Laurence are my interspecies OTP. (A platonic OTP, of course! But they really do love each other.)
