    Summary

    Laurence has been looking forward to a relaxing retirement. He has everything he could want, a doting dragon, a satisfied lover, and a plethora of loyal friends. However, uneasiness encroaches on his paradise in the form of the ever increasing absence of his dearest friend. Tharkay's distance troubles him, and it doesn't help that he keeps turning down invitations to join him for dinner with Jane. He is determined to get to the bottom of it, but doesn't realize that his meddling will bring much more change than he is prepared for, and if doesn't rise to the challenge, he may lose his dear Tharkay forever.

    Summary

    The Regal Copper Laurentius accidentally acquires a captain, Tharkay spectates, Temeraire is Not Actually an Orphan, and no one really knows who's leading France. Someone should probably get on that, considering England is at war with the place.

    Summary

    Weeks after finding a dragon egg in the Amitie’s hold William Laurence reluctantly turns away and lets the Corps take Temeraire - but he doesn’t return to the Navy.

    He’s not an aviator, but somehow Laurence still ends up going down in history as the instigator behind the Great Dragon Rebellion of ‘06.

    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.

    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

    Liu Bao looks him in the eye over the table. “Admiral Zheng sailed all the way to Africa,” he says, “but he died on his seventh voyage, and his tomb is empty. You have gone around the world more than once. Have you never been worried that you would die at sea, and no one would perform the rites at your grave?

    Laurence answers as truthfully as he knows how. “No,” he says, “never, though I have feared the opposite — that I would die on land, and be buried in the earth, and I would never know home again.”

    Summary

    "'And by the magistrate, as equally useful. And thus toleration produced not only mutual indulgence, but even religious concord”, and that’s as much as I can manage. Seriously, Tem, this has to be one of the worst ones yet. Tomorrow I get to choose,” said Laurence, firmly closing the battered copy of The Decline and Fall of the Holy Roman Empire they had found in a charity shop, and leaving it in the bedside table. Tem nodded, with a serious face, and burrowed himself in the covers. Laurence kissed him on the forehead and smoothed his head out of his face. “Goodnight, my dear.”
