His Majesty's Dragon - Naomi Novik Might have considered 5 stars, because this started out really strong, and I was really in to it. The dragons and their personalities were really fun. But something about how the climatic events wrapped up seemed to subtract (?) from the oomph of the characters & world.
There were a few events that happened, but none had a entirely satisfactory resolution - in hindsight, maybe it's the author's style of writing. Though each was distinct, the author spent a minimal amount of time to wrap it up before moving on the next thing. There didn't seem to be much fallout.
