I'm still on the first one, but it's so freakin' good that I went ahead and bought the next two. These were recently optioned by Peter Jackson's company for possible films down the road.
Basically, it's naval warfare set in the Napoleonic Wars, with dragons. No magic, no goofy wizards (at least not yet), just good old fashioned dragonwars and sailing frigates. And so far, it kicks ass. MASTER AND COMMANDER meets... dragons, I guess. Excellent book so far.
Anyone else pick these up?
