This week I'm asking about the books by Naomi Novik. I've read the first three in the Temeraire series: His Majesty's Dragon,The Black Powder War and Throne Of Jade and loved them, but I'm having a bit of trouble coming up with recommendations for other books people who liked this world might like. I've heard the books being described simply as "Napoleonic Wars with dragons" and Naomi Novik has made a very different world here, using her dragons in a manner I've never seen before. The books aren't quite pure fantasy, being set in our world, but neither are they fully urban fantasy, being set in so much of an earlier time.
Too often though because it's not quite one thing or the other, it's made it difficult to make other suggestions. I've had enough people say they liked these, but they don't like fantasy or something similar. What would you suggest?
