Review: Crucible of Gold

Crucible of Gold
Crucible of Gold by Naomi Novik

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Temeraire and Laurence are living quite happily in Australia when duty calls in the form of Hammond. Because Temeraire and Laurence can't say no to gold, fighting Napoleon, or country, they agree to go to South America and help the British cause. As you can imagine, Temeraire and company quickly get themselves into trouble in the form of sailors, locals, and Frenchmen.

I feel that I did not give this book enough of a chance. In order to finish the next book (#8) in the series, I pushed through this one, even though I was a little Temeraire-ed out. Overall, this was a fun book, but I found myself zoning out about three-quarters of the way though. The story was fine; I just kept getting distracted.
