This is the last book in the Temeraire series. The end of an era! I've been following these books for so long and I just have so many FEELINGS.

This is not going to be a coherent review with, like, structure and stuff. Have a list of things I thought about!

- I JUST LOVE EVERYONE IN THIS BAR. BOOK. THING. All the characters are the best and the world is the best and I just. Yes. Good. More of this forever please. (It's so sad that this is the last book!)

cut for spoilers )

- I feel like I ought to say something wrapping up my thoughts about the series in general. I don't even know what to say! I've been following these books for something like a decade, and while the strength of my love came and went somewhat over that time, I've never stopped loving them. In a lot of ways it felt like this series was written to cater directly to my tastes, and though these books are not perfect in every way they are certainly thoroughly excellent at delighting me. I'm gonna miss having new Temeraire to look forward to, and the fandom, though generally enthusiastic, is not what I'd call large and prolific. But I look forward to seeing what writing projects Novik will take on next!

So hey remember how I read Blood of Tyrants and was all "....did I miss a book?" Yes, I missed a book. I missed this one. And I finally got around to reading it! AND I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO SAY YOU GUYS. These books. They're just....? IDK I AM ENDLESSLY CHARMED AND DELIGHTED.

I read this book almost a week ago at this point and inexplicably did not write down my thoughts immediately after reading. All I did was write a note in my phone of one point I wanted to be particularly sure I remembered to mention. That point: "dragon interpersonal politics are my fave." THEY ARE. Every time I've opened my notes app for the last week I have seen this and been delighted. Dragons interacting with each other with their various agendas and personalities and cultures are the best.

So I FINALLY got around to reading Tongues of Serpents, which meant that I accidentally stayed up till 5:30 am last night. UM. My lack of self-control re: books is awful. BUT IT WAS SO GOOD.

LET ME TELL YOU HOW GOOD IT WAS WITH SPECIFIC DETAILS )
