TONGUES OF SERPENTS, by Naomi Novik



6/series. Temeraire and William Lawrence, transported to the penal colony of New South Wales, find themselves embroiled in yet another upheaval as William Bligh (yes, that one) has been ousted from his position as Governor of the colony, and seeks the aid of Lawrence and his dragon. Unwilling to aid the irascible governor, they decide to flee. Click below for more...
Escaping to the Blue Mountains, and carrying an unhatched egg with them, they find verdant valleys and a possible new home. But the egg is stolen and a race across the vast, unknown and deadly Outback ensues. As always, Novik entwines political fact with realistic danger and dragon fancy in a completely enthralling mix. A 5.
