Temeraire #06: Tongues of Serpents by Naomi Novik
Temeraire #06: Tongues of Serpents

andyp, September 13, 2011

I've thoroughly enjoyed the Temeraire series, however, the latest installment - Tongues of Serpents will rank as my least favorite. The storyline through Australia just didn't hold up compared to the storyline in previous five. The pace really drags as our heroes trek across the outback - I guess the author's intent was to convey the monotonousness of this experience on our heroes but it felt like nothing happened in the storyline for a large section of the book. It picks up approaching the end of the book and then ends quickly. It's must-read for those that love the Temeraire series but I hope the author makes up for a disappointing #6 with a much better storyline for #7.
