His Majesty's Dragon (Temeraire Series #1)

His Majesty's Dragon - Naomi Novik I would be hard-pressed to think of a book that I love quite as much as this one.I've read it in paper, in ebook, and in audiobook. Every time, it captures me in the first chapter and doesn't let me go until the last page. It's got fantastic world-building, rich characters, a fast pace, and clean, straightforward writing.This book makes me laugh and (in one particular spot, on every single reread) it makes me cry. It's just masterful, and I can't recommend it strongly enough.
