Black Powder War - Naomi Novik

I'm easily right back in Laurence and Temeraire's world.  They are still in China waiting to head back home.  Already glad I'm back.  Temeraire's character in particular has just continued to be more and more interesting with each page and each book.   Expecting things to get very interesting upon their return home.

 

It's totally unfair to this series that I put off continuing it because other series books burned me out on some of the alternate-history and naval stuff (I still cannot believe the seemingly thousands of pages favorite author David Weber devoted just to explaining the guns/cannons on a ship in his Safehold series nevermind there wasn't one page that didn't try to educate us about something to do with naval or ordinance stuff).
