    Former Aerial Corps captain Will Laurence and his faithful dragon, Temeraire, have been put out to pasture in Australia - and it seems their part in the war has ended just when they are needed most. The French have invaded Spain, forged an alliance with Africa’s powerful Tswana empire, and brought revolution to Brazil. With Britain’s last desperate hope of defeating Napoleon in peril, the government that sidelined Laurence swiftly offers to reinstate him, convinced that he’s the best man to enter the fray and negotiate peace.

    Temeraire is a Celestial dragon, the most highly prized of all draconic breeds, famed for their intelligence, for their agility and most of all for the Divine Wind - their terrible roar, capable of shattering the heavy timbers of war ships and devastating woodland. Captured by the British, Temeraire was meant to be the companion of the Emperor Napoleon and not captained by a mere officer in the British Air Corps. The Chinese have demanded his return, and the British government cannot afford to provoke the Asian superpower into allying with the French - even if it costs them the most powerful weapon in their arsenal and forces Laurence and Temeraire apart.

    You define life or it defines you. In Shawn Speakman’s case, it was both. Lacking health insurance and diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2011, Shawn quickly accrued a massive medical debt that he did not have the ability to pay. That’s when New York Times best-selling author Terry Brooks offered to donate a short story that Shawn could sell to help alleviate those bills—and suggested he ask the same of his other writer friends. Unfettered is the result: An anthology built in order to relieve that debt, featuring short stories by some of the best fantasy writers in the genre.

Age-old enmities and suspicions have turned the entire region into a powder keg ready to erupt at the slightest spark - a spark that Laurence and Temeraire may unwittingly provide, leaving Britain faced with new enemies just when they most desperately need allies instead.

    Nach einem Schiffsunglück hat Kapitän Will Lawrence alles verloren. Doch sein größter Verlust ist ihm nicht einmal bewusst. Denn durch den Unfall hat er keine Erinnerung mehr an seine Zeit als Feuerreiter oder an seinen Drachen Temeraire. Allein muss er sich den Intrigen und Machtkämpfen der mächtigen Familien Japans stellen. Währenddessen reist Temeraire ohne seinen Kapitän nach Moskau, um die Stadt gegen das größte Heer, das die Welt je gesehen hat, zu verteidigen. Im Schatten des Kremls werden sich der Kapitän und sein Drache wiedersehen - und es wird sich herausstellen, ob es tiefere Bande gibt als bloße Erinnerungen.
