I have all four of the series sitting on my book self. I've only gotten around to reading the first one though. I did enjoy the book greatly, and I hope to read the other three soon.

Ok lemme find the summary...
Wow looking at the site theres apparently 6 books! *runs in circles*
Here it is:
The series of books revolves around the primary characters Temeraire and Captain William Laurence. Captain Laurence is a member of the British Royal Navy, serving in combat against Napoleon's navy when he recovers a dragon egg unlike any other known to the British. The egg soon hatches, and Temeraire, is born. Temeraire immediately leaves an impression upon Laurence, and Laurence begins to think of him as his dearest friend. This forces a change in the sailor's life, drawing him from the prestigious Royal Navy to the less desirable Royal Aerial Corps. The subsequent novels in the original trilogy follow the adventures of Laurence and Temeraire as they deal with the forces of Napoleon Bonaparte as well as Temeraire's heritage and the diplomatic fallout of his adoption by the British captain.

mod edit on account of a huge spoiler.

what are the lengths (approximately) for each book?
what age group would you recommend it to?
is it a light read?

sorry, I always need to know these sorts of things before I read a book. I'm rather meticulous when it comes to reading :3

It's a fairly well done bit of historical fiction about the Napoleonic War.

WITH A TWEEEST

WHAT IF DRAGONS WERE REAL? AND PRESSED INTO MILITARY SERVICE?

THAT'S RIGHT, THE NAPOLEONIC WAR HAS AN AIR FORCE NOW AND IT'S A BUNCH OF PISSED OFF DUDES WITH GUNS AND BOMBS STRAPPED TO BIG ASS DRAGONS

I enjoyed them.
Does anybody really know what time it is? Does anybody really care?

To Luna.
The lengths of the first two were around about 400 - 600 pages. The age group I would recommend it to be from middle teens to adults and it for me at times was hard to follow but I enjoyed them.
