Its so close, but I believe Pern is more popular with it having so many books, but the nine book series Temeraire is coming up FAST!!
Anyways, I’ve been researching a beautiful book series called ‘Dragonriders of Pern’. What I like about it is that it is extensive, spanning 18 books and counting.
But challenging Pern’s very existence is not Thread. Its a new Dragon series called ‘Temeraire’ that, judging from the cover art, seems to deliver.
But I havent read neither of the books. I want to know what you think. Is Temeraire challenging Pern? Am I just bored and will post anything? No. But both of these books have a movie pending (but Temeraire has a mini series, not a movie). I will be looking forward to seeing Dragons ride high and kicking Thread or Napoleon-ish ASS!
update, just read the first chapter online and a few reviews I’m starting to think that with all the talk of Handlers, Temeraire seems to have a few unintentional quirks from Gunslinger Girl. Lawrence and Temeraire remind me of Jose and Henrietta (minus the part of Henrietta strongly liking Jose), and in a review someone said one Dragon was being treated like ‘a disposable vehicle’ or something like that. Dosn’t that sound like Lauro dissing (more like hate) Elsa?
But this isn’t Dragons fighting against Padania, no no no. Its Dragons VS Napoleon. Hmmm….I like it! I especially like the Omnibus edition. Long books are my specialty besides Wild Berry Pop Tarts.
