His Majesty's Dragon

Since 1992, I have been keeping a log of everything that I read; I have updated the on-line version for the first time in a year and a half. My goal is to read at least one book a month.

I just finished His Majesty's Dragon. As part of the rounding that I am doing within my teams, someone gave me this book earlier this year. My taste in science fiction runs towards hard science rather than fantasy. As a result, I put the book in the pile on my nightstand. Recently, I noticed that the book was one of the finalists for the 2007 Hugo Award. I picked up the book, starting reading and was hooked. The book is set in England during the Napoleonic wars. The difference is that sentient dragons exist and are used as aircraft in the war. The book is a very good read.
