  • Angela

    Black Powder War has a definite "middle of a series" flavor about it--not unlike trying to read one of the Aubrey-Maturins. It reads a lot more like a series of unrelated episodes than one big plot. B...

    Plotwise, I didn't like this one as much as the first 2 books in the series. It was a bit weak and it dragged at times. But it had charm! The interaction between different races of dragons, the bond b...
