Well, ten more of the same, this is fun.

I love these alternate reality/history stories. I think I'll order some of the books listed here, sounds like a lot of fun. Especially Napoleon's army riding dragons! Bonaparte meets Dragon Quidditch, LOL.

4. Throne of Jade - Naomi Novik

I found this title while looking up His Majesty's Dragon. Same setting, Napoleonic wars on dragonback. shameless grin
