Dragons as an air force in the Napoleon Wars is a big pill to swallow right off the bat. Once (if) you suspend your disbelief, however, the story is actually quite enjoyable.

Overall, a good read and I will continue the series....Continua
It has been a long time for me to find a book that I hate to put it down at the middle of reading. The last one I can recall is Harry Potter. The history in this book had missed some of the real history in there, makes it felt real in some way. Makes me wonder what the world will be if we do have dragons around. I'm sure I will love to be a rider, especially it mentioned Chinese were good at breed dragons.
Luckily, the second one is coming in few days. Looking forward to it.

I may read the rest of the series after this one......Continua
