    Summary

    “It’s unfair,” the admiral said, “when a Captain outlives his dragon. It’s not the natural order of things. Obito was a fine fellow, a credit to the Corps.” Lenton sighed, sinking back to his seat. “If I could give you more time, I would. But dragon eggs don't give a damn for the convenience of men. You are to attempt to harness the hatchling, Hatake. Consider it an order.”

    (Temeraire fusion -- Dragon Iruka)

    Summary

    ‘It is no good asking me,’ Laurence said at last, pushing the pattern-book away over breakfast, ‘I am not the one–’
    Not the one who would be living with the result, he had been about to say. But they had hardly accepted Tharkay’s invitation as casual houseguests.

    There are pearls that might turn a man into a dragon, a dragon into a man. What if a man does not remember his past?

    Summary

    Captain Laurence of the Amitié has been spying on the French for years. Nothing in his experience prepares him for the possibility of becoming captain to a Chinese Celestial – a dragon meant for the French Emperor – and certainly not for the subsequent attention this provokes when he is, therefore, the only person capable of negotiating with China.

    Summary

    Two dragons create a scandal in Britain, life with Tharkay is wonderful – and also a bit scandalous – and Laurence is apparently destined to be a political symbol for the rest of his life. What kind of symbol, though, is debatable.

    John is just trying to live a quiet life with his not-so-quiet daughter Iskierka when Tenzing bulldozes into his world with an injured sailor. Now he has two new roommates and an unwilling front-seat to an epic romance - or he would, if Tenzing and Laurence could get their act together.

    Summary

    His dragon taken from him, William Laurence leaves the service with little more than a bitter grudge against aviators and his Majesty's government. Slave ships and traders learn to fear his black flag; port towns on the African coast and Portuguese Brazil tremble when they hear rumors of his presence. Yet, inexplicably, he begins to set his target on dragon transports-and one moonless night the Allegiance, bound for China, finds itself under raid.

    Tharkay makes it to Peking intact with the news of Napoleon’s imminent invasion of Russia. Which would be all well and good, except that Laurence isn’t very intact himself.

    Summary

    The war with France has been oddly quiet of late, which is good (though frustrating) news for Temeraire, newly-trained and just learning to patrol the English coast. Meanwhile Laurence meets an amnesiac Frenchman in Dover and takes advantage of the covert's idleness.

    Summary

    Napoleon sends a letter to the upstart sea-captain who stole his dragon, Laurence sends one back, and a correspondence begins under the uneasy eye of the admiralty.

    ------When Laurence had admitted the matter to Granby his lieutenant exclaimed, “God, does Boney want you drawn and quartered as a traitor?” which seems perfectly possible.
