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.
