BLACK POWDER WAR, the third volume in Naomi Novik's Temeraire series, is a fantasy in a historical setting. Napoleon Bonaparte is on the move in Europe, and so are his dragons. Simon Vance adds just the right touch to the Englishman, Lawrence, and his companion dragon, Temeraire. He's also called upon to perform several other characters and accents as Lawrence travels in search of more dragons to aid his side of the fight. An interesting touch occurs at the end of the audiobook. A scientific discourse (dated 1806) discusses the question of whether or not dragons can perform mathematics.
