Age-old enmities and suspicions have grew to become the whole zone right into a powder keg able to erupt on the slightest spark—a spark that Laurence and Temeraire may well unwittingly supply, leaving Britain confronted with new enemies simply after they such a lot desperately want allies instead.

For to the west, one other, wider conflagration looms. Napoleon has grew to become on his former best friend, the emperor Alexander of Russia, and is even now prime the biggest military the realm has ever noticeable so as to add that kingdom to his checklist of conquests. it really is there, outdoor the gates of Moscow, reunited Laurence and Temeraire—along with a few unforeseen allies and previous friends—will face their final problem . . . and examine even if there are better ties than memory.
