Fantasy: His Majesty’s Dragon, by Naomi Novik

Unusual fantasy taking dragons and plopping them into our historical world (as opposed to planting them in a more fantasy-bound world a la Anne McCaffery, who I dearly love and whose first six or so dragon books will never be equaled*). Dragons as an essential part of aerial battle strategy as the Brits (and others) war against Napoleon. Really entertaining but what made this book for me was the dragon, whose voice I thought was better written (and more engaging to the reader) than those of the humans.
Temeraire, you are awesome.
*More on that soon. SRSLY.
