As Napoleon's Grand Army tear Europe apart, his armada is poised to engage Admiral Nelson's smaller fleet and threatened Britain.

Contents: As Napoleon's tenacious infantry rampages across Europe and his armada lies in wait for Nelson's smaller fleet, the war does not rage on land and water alone. Squadrons of aviators swarm the skies, riding dragons. Captain Laurence is a satisfied man with a respectable commission aboard the ship Reliant. Laurence finds a dragon egg meant for Napoleon aboard a conquest, but when it is born, it bonds not with the chosen aviator but with Laurence. Hatchling dragons must be put in a harness immediately otherwise the dragon-young become hard to control --
fit only for the breeding colonies. The person chosen to first harness the beast must be an aviator, for the dragon will accept no other captain. The life of an aviator is not a desirable one; reviled by fashionable society, they live hard, lonely lives bound to duty and they frequently die young. Laurence must now join them; duty demands it, though his heart is broken.
