We gave it a B

Capt. Will Laurence is sentenced to death (for sabotaging a British plot to kill all of France’s military dragons) just as Napoléon Bonaparte launches an all-out attack on England in Naomi Novik’s Victory of Eagles

Movie Pitch
Moot, since Peter Jackson has optioned Novik’s series, but think Dragonslayer meets Master and Commander.

Bottom Line
Five books into any series and the wonder tends to dim, but Eagles is still solid, if familiar. B
