Review: League of Dragons

League of Dragons by Naomi Novik

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A perfect ending to the Temeriare series. There’s finally an ending to the Napoleonic threat – I won’t say whether it follows the same trajectory as in our world. But, more importantly, we finally begin to see dragons finally understand their place in society. Novik intelligently began the series with Laurence the son of an abolitionist and made it clear that if the dragons were indeed sentient, that they had a parallel claim to recognition. Without spoiling what happens in this book, I’m delighted to have seen Perscitia’s role in things.

I’ve seen many a series end and they don’t always end in a satisfactory way, but this one truly does.
