Hello! So sorry that I haven't blogged in ages. I've been deathly, deathly ill. Grrr. But in the meantime I've read some great books. So while you have a little time off this weekend, try this: His Majesty's Dragon by Naomi Novik. What a phenomenal book! And it's her first. That's right, a debut novel for which no excuses need to be made. It's perfect, wonderful characters, fabulous plot. No holes, no dragging bits, just a rip-roaring good time as British soldiers fight Napoleon . . . on dragonback! It's a combination of fantasy and historical fiction, and it delivers as both. So this Thanksgiving, that's what I'm thankful for: Naomi Novik and her wonderful Temeraire books.
