A haunting tale that explores the impact of World War I on all who witnessed it — officers, soldiers, doctors, and battlefield nurses like Bess Crawford.
An epidemic is killing Britain’s dragons. The only fighting dragons left are Temeraire and the ferals, desperate to prevent Napoleon discovering the hole in their defenses.
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.
It’s a baptism of fire for Laurence and Temeraire, His Majesty’s Dragon, as they soar into aerial combat in the Napoleonic Wars.
