When England captured a French ship and took a dragon egg that
turned out to be a rare Chinese breed they though they had gotten
lucky. But now China wants the dragon back and are threatening
war if they don't get him. England quickly agrees to send him back,
but they are about to find out that if a dragon doesn't want to go
somewhere it is very difficult to make him.
Really, really brilliant! I highly recommend this alternate history
series to fans of good writing, great dragons and witty characters.
