His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik is a fantastic read, one of the best books to be published in the last decade, in my opinion. Naomi took the Napoleonic Era—with its fleets of warships and nation conflicts—and threw in aerial corps of dragons. The added fantasy element creates a fascinating series, one loved the world over. Add two great characters in Captain Will Laurence and his dragon companion Temeraire—and their wonderful relationship—and it captures what is best about our
After all, there is a reason Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson optioned the rights to create a live-action movie or television series based on His Majesty’s Dragon. It will make for a great cinematic experience!
Del Rey Books and Naomi have decided to make His Majesty’s Dragon available for $0.99 in eBook. That’s right. It is a perfect introduction to her series.
I mean, you really have no excuse.
Here is a bit more about His Majesty’s Dragon:
Aerial combat brings a thrilling new dimension to the Napoleonic Wars as valiant warriors rise to Britain’s defense by taking to the skies . . . not aboard aircraft but atop the mighty backs of fighting dragons.
When HMS Reliant captures a French frigate and seizes its precious cargo, an unhatched dragon egg, fate sweeps Capt. Will Laurence from his seafaring life into an uncertain future–and an unexpected kinship with a most extraordinary creature. Thrust into the rarified world of the Aerial Corps as master of the dragon Temeraire, he will face a crash course in the daring tactics of airborne battle. For as France’s own dragon-borne forces rally to breach British soil in Bonaparte’s boldest gambit, Laurence and Temeraire must soar into their own baptism of fire.
So why wait?! It’s only a dollar. Buy the book and read it. Or give the book to a friend or family member! Share the Temeraire series! To see the different formats, click HERE!

I’m devastated! Not available in the UK :(
This will be a great way to gain new sets of fans and to please old ones: I can bring it anywhere with my device. I bought the actual book years ago and wanted to reread and reread it again and again — ehem — until it gets a movie adaptation.
Bringing a hardbound everywhere would be a hassle and this is the ‘discounted’ answer!
Tremendous. I agree.
Tried to get this electronically. Listed by Random house for 7.99?? Went to Amazon – “This title is not currently available for purchase”. Tried to get some of the others electronically as well – pretty much all are listed but unavailable. Not very helpful when wanting to buy the book.
Did the lower price already expire? It’s back up to the regular price on a few sites I just checked. Sorry to have missed the special price!
