The io9 Book Club Is in Session! Let's talk about His Majesty's Dragon.

Welcome to the monthly meeting of the io9 Book Club. In April, we read Naomi Novik's Her Majesty's Dragon. It's the first novel in her Temeraire series — the latest, Crucible of Gold, just came out. Jump into comments to get started talking about it!

For those unfamiliar with the io9 book club, here's how it works: You read the book. We create a special book club post on io9 when the meeting is in session. That would be the post you're reading right now. Then everybody talks about the book in comments for a few days, starting right now.

Novik will be stopping by to talk to you about the book on Friday, April 27. I'll put up a separate post calling for questions on Thursday, so look for that if you want to ask her something!


So, what did you think of the book?

Want to get a head start on our next book? In May, we'll be reading Nick Harkaway's Angelmaker (we reviewed it here). [Amazon] We'll meet May 29 to talk about the book, and we hope that Harkaway will join us to discuss the book later that week.
