A little fancomic for the last Temeraire novel, Blood of Tyrants.

I loved a number of scenes and events in the book, and toward the ending there were a number of cool ones reguarding the Temeraire behavior toward the Russian soldiers and dragons, and the very ending of the book itself.

I could not prevent myself to make a little crossover with Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones xD

Good job on Murat's uniform :)

Towards the end of blood of Tyrants, in the part where the French dragons were described as much more intelligent than they used to be... I shiver and get this "Oh no, they are never going to make it!"-feeling. I have had that in some other brilliant series too, and I think it is the mark of a genius :D

Yes well... more than dragons, i could say that's good to see a French character acting as the protagonist: making a bold single-action decision, moved by his feelings, that turns the events (with unexpected consequences for all).
 
Honestly i messed it a bit up xD I got a mix of all the picture uniforms i got and made it more simple xD

Exactly, and his letter to his wife. I really want to know if that's a code or not :D

Ha-ha! I couldn't hold myself but watched your spoiler comic. Lol!:) Murat the chain-breaker! :) Oh and he's a king too?! Poor Russian lightweights, it's some kind of temptation for Temeraire. Just imagine if he said that they were his servants for such a small payment.

You you .... Xp

Well... actually he's king of Italy xD Under Napoleon Italy was pretty much unified and Murat got the crown...

Btw i don't think that Temeraire would enjoy such offering: he's pretty much more radical book by book.

Hmm...not quite. Murat just had Naples, which was south Italy (the islands resisted French rule); Napoleon held the rest; either as a part of Napoleonic
France, or as part of the Kingdom of Italy, which he ruled ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Fra… ). 

Sorry to be nitpicky; I've been spending too much time modding maps of the world for EUIII and CKII!

I have a vague feeling that he might have even abdicated it to his son (the one who's been born to an Inca Queen in this timeline...interesting, as the real Napoleon II remarked at one point that his mother was too weak for Napoleon, and that he'd probably have still been on the throne if he'd married someone else!) at one point...let me check.

Hmm...not quite. He crowned his son "King of Rome" (which was a part of the French Empire anyway), but kept ruling the Kingdom of Italy himself (with his stepson acting as Viceroy).

Is that series any good?I've been looking for a fantasy series that revolves around dragons but I haven't found any other than Eragon and the Earthsea cycle.I've read some reviews about it but I wasn't very impressed...So since you've obviously read(reading) it,what's your opinion about it?:O

I second what :iconkooskia:'s saying; read those books he's mentioned! And perhaps skip straight to "The White Dragon" or "Moreta: Dragonlady of Pern" if you read the "Dragonriders of Pern"...as he noted, the dragons aren't too important in the earlier books, and the earlier stories have a few flaws here and there (including incredibly unhealthy relationships that were quite normal in 60s Romance), but as the series evolved, the dragons became more prominent (the two books listed above focus on the bond between dragon and rider, so the dragons get a lot of scenes), and the books do get better as time goes on. I should also note that the Eragon series pretty much ripped off the Dragonriders of Pern series...and it's the series that first attempted to make dragons the good guys, so it's the grandmother of these sorts of stories...

There's a short story from the Temeraire verse that can be read here, this should give you a vague idea of what the series is like; www.naominovik.com/feast-or-fa…

Glad to help! 

The Pern series can be a bit of a mixed bag...some odd scenes (like Kooskia, I wasn't too taken by the first book, but once I read the later books with more dragon interaction I was in!), but also some good scenes with dragons and their riders! But the other two series are probably better starts!

Oh gosh xD You should take a look more about my fancomics so Xp
Apart self-advertise, i often try to make works also to advertise books themselves x3

Temeraire it's a good series because mix good elements: action, interesting characters, twists and plot/character development.
It's good for dragons, but sadly have to be said that the first 4 books (we've currently 8) involve only human point-of-view.
From the fifth book, the chapters are a mix of human and dragon point-of-view.

I love how the series mix well serious with humour stuff x3 You can see plenty of comics i've tributed to Temeraire.

Another famous one is Dragonrider of Pern: it's more science-fiction, but i got disappointed from the first book (there are many) because of big "Mary Sue" style protagonist, low partecipation and importance of dragons (only after half book you notice they can actually speak with their riders... and they say nothing of important or interesting.
I've made a crossover fancomic showing the three main dragons confronting: kooskia.deviantart.com/art/Dra…

Finally i really suggest you "Age of Fire": because it involves 100% draconic point-of-view.
It's an high-fantasy style story (elves, dwarves, human kingdom, but only very little magic)
I think it's the best for who love to see more dragon actions, because the reader focus it's ever on them and their actions.

I see.Thank you for all the info,Age of Fire sounds like the most interesting one,though Temeraire seems also ok.Age of Fire seems to be solely about dragons though which sounds unusual;by unusual I mean I haven't read such a series before.I've read Eragon up to the middle of Brisingr before but I got fed up of the writing of Paolini.I think that his books are easier to read in the translated versions(that being said,either Greek or Dutch for me).I find the English version awfully hectic...especially Eldest.Eldest was a torture to read.

As for the Dragonriders of Pern...I've heard of it before but the story never sparked my interest for some reason...

About your comics,I try to look mostly at the ones from series/books I've read...Like the Named,Warriors,Tailchaser and Tiger tiger..well and more.But for the rest,I won't really understand the jokes unless I read the books...so:P

Thanks though:)

Uh... but i forgot to say that the english of Age of Fire is a bit complex, compared with others.
I've found the books as files (word) and i've sometimes to use google translator for some weird word xD
I know of another series with 100% dragons point of view, "Wings of Fire" frome one of the authors of Warriors: but i'm a bit in fear that the contents are more for younger reader (on level of Warriors).

About my comics i understand, even if most are ever about the same jokes at the point of being repetitive xD

Hmm...who's the red dragon at the top again? It's been so long since I've read BOT that I've completely forgotten what scene that refers to!

um.... forgot his name xD one of the chinese generals.
And if i'm right the scene is actually repeated more times, i lost count about how many times they said to Laur&Tem to not be engaged in battle. And at some point it's referred that if Tem. doesn't fight, he could make russians angry with his talks

Ah, awesome! How are you finding the series so far? And what did you think of the third book?

Be warned, the books are sadly a bit weak after the fourth one...the fifth one's quite short (I was quite surprised how quickly I read it) and the sixth one's a bit...odd, as noted. But I'll happily discuss it with you!

Ooh, that reminds me; the fifth book has a sub-plot which sheds some new light into the circumstances of Halaflora's death...there's still not a conclusive answer, but there's more information added. Based on everything that's been said, I'm fairly sure I know exactly what happened, and I wrote up a lengthy argument saying as much on the old Age of Fire message board...send me a message when you've read book five and I'll send you my theory!

I've not commented the third book? I liked it very much however...

Speaking of this fourth book, i find good how they introduced the survival of Wistala to AuRon.
Also i liked the meeting of the three characters: it needed to be a big event and a shock for all, yet author did well in growing the desire for us as readers, because we KNEW that all the character were going to meet soon, yet it took the right time to happens.

I was also satisfied from their reactions: the feeling of victory of RuGaard, and the rushed need of AuRon to go away (both to save his friend, both to not be close of his brother), however i would have enjoyed more a bit more prolonged private-talk between RuGaard and Wistala AFTER the departure of RuGaard: however i've to say that this is an human-feeling, not the same for dragons that having a different concept of time and ages, have not that rushed need.

I'm following with interest the strategy for now: first of all it's good that AuRon and the rebels managed to destroyer a Ghioz Army, allowing the temporary survival of this force that can be important in the struggle against the Queen. Moreover it's good that the large northern offensive of the Ironrider has been basically crushed (even if with some losses in dragonelles).

I've yet to see it, but i've big fears for the bold action of RuGaard attempting this under-ground offensive, pulling all his forces and leavhing with poor protection the Lavadome. Considering there are still 2 books, and it can't be over now, i fear a disaster...

Reguardless the ends of the whole war and campaign, i've noticed (with some hope) that not all the dragons of the Island of Ice have been deployed to south as support, and as different groups we know that at this point there are basically 4 of them.
The Lavadome, the Sadde-Vale (that we've yet to see part in this war), the Island of the Ice, the remains of dragons with dragonrider close to Island of Ice (i can't remember the city where they lives) : in the book it say that there are males, and females of the island of ice go to them, searching for mates. However i've not read this group has been employed in battle, and it's only mentioned that northern tribes could hunt the remains of the Ironriders that stretched to north.

Even if Lavadome and Sadde-Vale get destroyed or terribly weakened at the end of the series, i hope the two groups of north (Island of Ice and the ex-dragonriders) could have the numbers to keep on. I've to mention however two details i've picked up.
I'm wondering if the low-fertility of some females (that has been mentioned) in Lavadome could have been related to the fact that they live in the underground with poor light (so their need of kern).
From this point of view, Island of Ice dragons or former Lavadome that came out and live in surface, could live with a better fertility.

Well... apart this, i've to say that i feels the huge need of a well-done WIKIA. I've read there is one but sadly is very very poor.
I'm thinking that MAYBE, if i will not have need to read too many books, first or later i could re-read the series and note every detail of history, nations, conflicts, etc..

Ah, wonderful! I shouldn't say too much lest I spoil things, but the siblings will get more time to talk with one another in the next two books, and the war...well, you'll see how that plays out in time.

It's been a while since I read the books, but I'm pretty sure you're quite right about the low fertility being linked to the lack of sunlight...isn't there a line at some point where RuGaard thinks Halaflora could have come right with time if she'd been out in the sunlight more? And, as noted long ago, it's left up to the reader to decide whether the dragon population is doomed or not in the final book...one character thinks their numbers might be too low, but his mate disputes that and reveals she's pregnant, so that'll help their numbers!

Yes, the Wikia does need work...I wrote up the summary pages a while back, and did some minor tweaking to a few of the pages, but that was about it...I'm no good with character pages! At one point someone asked me to stop because he was going to write up a whole bunch of pages as part of a school project, but that was over a year ago now, so it's fair game again now!

Just finished reading it!

Yeah i had underestimated the strenght of the Ironriders (and infact there was a big battle) and underestimated the strenght of the dragons in their assault of the Ghioz capital ^^

I've few guessing about the next books (survival of the Red Queen, possibly connected to the rock, even if appeared that AuRon burned the tree that was related with the Queen in some way).
One thing i've absolutely not understood if it's Naf was killed or not: he appeared as dying, but then he's mentioned again. But maybe it was about something he told before dying.

Yep, i remembered right that in the previous book. Btw i think that dragons could do it even if now number because i sort-of-think that the Lavadome never managed to enjoy brief moments of peace and stability to grow in number: at this you've to adds the fact that one or two males in the clunch are killed, dueling pratcics, the abandoning of wounded in battle,  and not all the females mate because chose to serve in the Firemaids.
If we remove part (of all) of this issues, the population can grow at higher speed.
