    3.5 5 stars I m not sure yet how I feel about the series as a whole, but I ve found myself picking up these novels for a very specific Temeraire fix, if that makes sense The books are all fairly similar but the highlight continues to be the dragons This novel had them exploring the Australia

    I have been a pretty good fan of this series, but unfortunately, I ve grown tired of it by now.This isn t dragons against Napoleon any This isn t an intrigue in China This is exile to Australia Long treks, dragon eggs, and filler await us Maybe it s because I took almost a decade to return to the

    Rankin and Caesar were predictably insufferable, and it seems like Laurence and Temeraire are stuck in Australia for the foreseeable future I very much liked seeing Demane take charge of Kulingile And gosh but I missed Simon Vance s voice.

    Wow boring Pretty sure I could have skipped this one and not missed much at all I still love Temeraire though.

    How can you possibly make a story about the first days of Australian colonization boring Well, ToS is how The beginning of Tongues of Serpents was dreadful slow paced, political in the most uninteresting ways, and action that falls short of it s rich setting.I mean, come on This is the wild and untamed Australia And all the characters spend doi
