Black Powder War

3 Stars

In this, the third installment of the Temeraire series, Captain Lawrence and his crew make the long trek from China back to England, experiencing many adventurous encounters along the way.

I am noticing a pattern with these books.  They start off really slow and boring (with the exception of the first one, which had newness going for it), and make me wonder, Why the hell am I reading this garbage.  But then they get super exciting about halfway through, and I can hardly put the book down.  Oh well…

There is a fourth book out now.  I have it on hold at the library and look forward to reading it soon.
