The third volume in the Temeraire series finds British ex-naval officer Captain Laurence and his faithful dragon returning from their Chinese adventure only to be diverted to Istanbul, ostensibly to escort valuable dragon eggs back to Britain.

Genre Mash
Lawrence of Arabia meets Dragonheart.

Lowdown
Still enjoyable, but this faithful reader wanted less travelogue and more of the intricately rendered life-of-an-aviator derring-do that shone in the first book.
