Description

"A satisfying conclusion to a remarkable series."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Concludes with appropriate fanfare . . . Thrilling scenes of aerial combat are interspersed with detailed character work, moral complexities, and political maneuvering. Novik expertly balances a myriad of plotlines and characters and offers an extremely satisfying resolution."--Booklist (starred review)

"This thrilling installment is packed with action and excitement, drawing the series to a delightful and satisfying close with plenty of twists, misadventures, and aerial combat along the way. . . . Concludes the series with a bang."--Publishers Weekly (starred, boxed review)

"Novik's fans won't be disappointed."--Library Journal

"Novik has accomplished something singular with her Temeraire series. It's long. It's sumptuous. . . . It's a story about friendship that transcends not only time and class, but species. . . . League of Dragons masterfully wraps up so many plot threads and loose ends that had built up throughout the previous eight books [but] Novik never forgets that, as complex as her ideas and plot may get, the very simple notions of friendship and loyalty lie at the heart of the series."--NPR

"League of Dragons sticks the landing. . . . And the book also has an abundance of the things that I love about the series: deep and inventive worldbuilding; fabulous action scenes; so many complex characters and relationships that have been built up over the series; humor (I literally laughed out loud multiple times); and the general project of taking the nineteenth century and making it better. . . . League of Dragons is an ending to the series, it is a definitive one, and it is a satisfying one. Go read it."--Tordotcom

"A satisfactory sendoff to one of the most thrilling and immersive fantasy series on today's shelves . . . Novik packs in plenty of what made this series a hit in the first place, particularly acutely imagined battle scenes, high-stakes decisions and snappy dialogue from those delightful dragons, who have as much or more intelligence as humans, coupled with the innocent self-interest of the average cat."--Shelf Awareness

Praise for Naomi Novik and her Novels of Temeraire

"Novik's influences run the gamut from Jane Austen to Patrick O'Brian, with a side trip through Anne McCaffrey. Her books are completely involving and probably addictive, their central conceit explored in clever detail with a great deal of wit and historical insight."--San Francisco Chronicle

"These are beautifully written novels: not only fresh, original, and fast-paced, but full of wonderful characters with real heart."--Peter Jackson

"A gripping adventure full of rich detail and the impossible wonder of gilded fantasy."--Entertainment Weekly

"A new writer is soaring on the wings of a dragon."--The New York Times

"A glorious series whose future status as a genre classic is now assured."--SF Reviews

"If you've never read these novels, now is the time to start."--io9

"Enthralling reading."--Time
