She likes writing travelogues. It was a... difficult read for me because it seems as if all of Temeraire's flexibility, creativity and assertiveness from Victory was forgotten. Instead we got a book (similar to the third novel) save the difficult, deadly traveling went from ~70 pages to ~140 pages with little plot or character growth accomplished in the mean time.
