She is also the author of the graphic novel Will Supervillains Be on the Final?
Fascinated with both history and legends, Novik is a first-generation American raised on Polish fairy tales and stories of Baba Yaga.

She lives in New York City with her husband, Charles Ardai, the founder of Hard Case Crime, and their daughter, Evidence, surrounded by an excessive number of purring computers.
Top Customer Reviews
This book starts to explore the relationship between the rider and dragon - which should lead to some interesting dynamics in the future, and Temeraire is finally starting to mature - I thought some of the "honor" stuff was a bit tedious, but beyond that, the rest of the book had some interesting stuff happening.
