His Majesty's Dragon

His Majesty's Dragon - Naomi Novik This is everything I want in a book and almost never get. While the Jane Austen sort of language took some getting used to (for me, at least) there was never a dull moment. It was so wonderful to actually lose myself in a book and spend time with characters I loved and characters I loved to hate. Novik knows how to spin a tale in the most satisfying way. I really look forward to the rest of this series.

Overall: This book reminded me why I read books in the first place.
