Golden Age and Other Stories

We rated this book:


There is a literary universe where humans and dragons weave epic tales, rewriting the history of warfare and exploration by joining forces and taking to the skies. This is the world of Temeraire and, although the series of novels chronicling that world has ended, that doesn’t mean the world is gone forever.

In Golden Age and Other Stories, the world-building talents of Naomi Novik are on full display as she revisits major characters, minor ones, and unexplored corners of the world in satisfying fashion, offering new readers and loyal fans alike brief glimpses of Temeraire they’ve never seen before.

These are tales of friendship and pride, of freedom and fidelity, and whether it’s Novik’s take on Pride and Prejudice or a wonderful shipwrecked tale of dragonly pride and pillaging, these stories are as charming as they are eye-opening. Humans and dragons alike shine in their roles, and each of the stories feels fresh, like Novik is endlessly capable of dodging fantasy cliches, even as she mines them for inspiration.

Golden Age and Other Stories soars. It’s as simple as that.
