"I read and watch GOT for the dragons and fantasy," you mutter.
How about a stunning series starring dragons of all kinds that Peter Jackson has bought the movie rights to?
Think Horatio Hornblower collides full-on
with Anne McCaffrey in
an alternate history of the Napoleonic Wars,
in which our heroes are aided by intelligent dragons
and a British ship of the line is ordered rather like a sail-powered aircraft/dragon carrier?
Aerial combat brings a thrilling new dimension to the Napoleonic Wars
as valiant warriors rise
to Britain’s defense by taking to the skies . . .
not aboard aircraft but atop the mighty backs of fighting dragons.
When HMS Reliant captures a French frigate
and seizes its precious cargo,
an unhatched dragon egg,
fate sweeps Capt. Will Laurence from his seafaring life into an uncertain future–
and an unexpected kinship with a most extraordinary creature
Thrust into the rarified world of the Aerial Corps as master of the dragon Temeraire,
he will face a crash course in the daring tactics of airborne battle.
For as France’s own dragon-borne forces rally to breach British soil in Bonaparte’s boldest gambit,
Laurence and Temeraire must soar into their own baptism of fire.
