Finished reading Naomi Novik's Crucible of Gold, something like 7 in the Temeraire books.
It remains fascinating as au politics playing variations on this two intelligent species setup.
It continues to not give me emotional payoff even when the plot does interesting climatic things.

Also it's weirdly unsatisfying when terrible things happen but people are too busy to feel terrible for long.

The emotional distance sends me straight back to fanfic, and then the fascinating politics things to do with dragons brings me back to the next book.
