Review of "Empire of Ivory" (Temeraire, #4) by Naomi Novik

Empire of Ivory - Naomi Novik

Wow.

 

Oh, wow.

 

I did not see any of this coming.

 

Well, in hindsight, foundations were laid where nothing was out of character for the storyline, worldbuilding or characters.

 

But, wow!

 

I don't know how to even write a review of this one without spoilers.  I've been enjoying the books in this series; this one really blew me away.  

 

Unequivocal ★★★★★ with the next in series (Victory of Eagles ) to be read as soon as the book hangover from this fades and I read something else as a breather.
