I wsan't sure whether this was going to be good or terrible. It turns out that it is good.
It's a Napoleonic adventure story, with a single fantastic element - the existence of dragons (and their use in war as an air force). Although this gets it classed as fantasy, it doesn't read like a fantasy novel (which is all good).
The book follows a naval Captain who accidentally imprints a captured, hatchling dragon and what consequently happens to the two of them.
Overall, a fun read.
