Crucible of Gold Published!

Today is the day!

Crucible of Gold by Naomi Novik is in fine US bookstores today! It is the seventh Temeraire novel, returning our Captain Laurence and his beloved dragon Temeraire. This is the book that fans have been waiting for; this is the book that begins the end for our favorite characters!

As a long-time fan of the series, all I will tell you is that Crucible of Gold is a fantastic return to form for the series, and in my opinion Naomi can’t write the next book fast enough!

Visit your favorite bookseller today and buy it. Then get to reading! You won’t regret it!

Huh… I preordered this months and months ago from Amazon. Why does their site say it’s not released until the 8th?

Strange. And aggravating, since this means I may miss the shipping date by a few days and have to wait until after my vacation to actually read it. Been looking forward to this book for ages, though! :)

Though I’m likely to grab the Hardcover edition anyway, how long until the paperback edition is available? It’s usually a couple of months, but I remember book 6 took a fair bit of time compared to the others.

My reason: I want them all stacked on my bookshelf in the same height/size ratio, and hard’s are usually too heavy and uncomfortable to hold :D

I’d like to know as well.
I’m the same way. I generally like hard cover, because they don’t get messed up as easily, but I have the whole series in paperback and I don’t like mixing formats. >.<

I pre-ordered from Amazon thinking they would send it as soon as they got it and I would get it the 7th. No, when I checked the shipping dates it was between the 8-12. Much, much too long to wait so I called B&N and they had it in stock and I went and bought it there. I will do this for all future books. I’m not waiting on shipping. I loved it. It was very funny. Glad, spoiled, selfish Izzy finally got her comeuppance. I really don’t like her. If she was my dragon I’d give her to someone else and stay on as crew to Temeraire who is the best dragon ever.
I hope Ms. Novik is creating her world far ahead. The war won’t last forever, at least I hope not. What is she planning for Lawrence in peacetime? Lord, I hope they don’t end up the statue in Trafalgar Square as heroes! I want happily ever after, screw that heroic death crap.
We’ve done so many continents and we are going back to China. Is Portugal or Canada next? Can’t wait for next book!

I won’t get the book before the 22nd-29th, even if I pre-ordered it in february, 18th… not living in english language country tends to slow it down :P
