With the acclaimed Temperier novels, New York Times bestselling author Naomi Novik has created a fantasy series like no other. Now, with "Leage of Dragons", Novik brings the imaginative tour de force that has captivated millions to an unforgettable finish.
Napoleon's invasion of Russia has been roundly thwarted. But even as Capt. William Laurence and the dragon Temeraire pursue the retreating enemy through an unforgiving winter, Napoleon is raising a new force, and he'll soon have enough men and dragons to resume the offensive. While the emperor regroups, the allies have an opportunity to strike first and defeat him once and for all - if internal struggles and petty squabbles don't tear them apart.is weakened position, Napoleon has promised the dragons of every Country - and the ferals, loyal only to themselves - vast new rights and powers if they fight under his banner. It is an offer eagerly embraced from Asia to Africa - and even by England, whose dragons have long rankled at their disrespectful treatment.
But Laurence and his faithful dragon soon discover that the wily Napoleon has one more gambit at the ready - one that that may win him the war, and the world.

Autorenporträt
Naomi Novik wurde 1973 in New York geboren und ist mit polnischen Märchen, den Geschichten um die Baba Yaga und den Büchern von J.R.R. Tolkien aufgewachsen. Sie hat englische Literatur studiert, im Bereich IT-Wissenschaften gearbeitet und war außerdem an der Entwicklung von äußerst erfolgreichen Computerspielen beteiligt. Doch dann erkannte Naomi Novik, dass sie viel lieber schreibt als programmiert. So machte sie sich daran, ihren Debüt-Roman zu schreiben, mit dem sie sofort die Herzen von Kritikern und Lesern gleichermaßen eroberte: "Drachenbrut", den ersten Band um die Feuerreiter Seiner Majestät. Naomi Novik lebt mit ihrem Mann und sechs Computern in New York.
