I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
Napoleon finally marches into England, a country at a great disadvantage. It doesn't help that some of those charged with England's safety descend into despair as they don't believe that this war can be won. Nor do Laurence's traitorous actions help morale, no matter his righteous indignation at the plan to murder huge numbers of innocents to gain an advantage over their adversaries. War is brutal, and can turn once honorable people cold and ugly; Laurence and Temeraire have avoided this fate so far and I hope their own sends of honor and innate goodness sustain them throughout this series.
im already halfway through the next series and loving that as well. Another short review from Viv as I try to catch up on my reviews.
