History is re-written in a world where the Great Library of Alexandria survived to emerge ruthless and powerful with the personal ownership of books expressly forbidden.
Genre: Alternative History
Receiving new orders, Captain Laurence, Temeraire, and the remaining crew travel the Silk Road to pick up the promised eggs and help the Prussians battle Napoleon.
The Chinese are furious that such a low, common soldier has partnered up with Temeraire, and they’ll do anything to break them up…even murder on the high seas.
It’s a baptism of fire for Laurence and Temeraire, His Majesty’s Dragon, as they soar into aerial combat in the Napoleonic Wars.
