Just for fun try and guess where my Devilsaur's name came from I will give a hint it is from a nine book series by author Naomi Novik and the named character is the main character.

I love the Temeraire series! I have all the books, I've been procrastinating finishing the final one because I don't want it to be over. :)

I recently found the first two I had and now bought the rest to complete the series and yes I also dread the final one but maybe there will be more of the dragon on her web page she did say and I quote, Michelle D. Keyes writes: Do you see an end at some point for the Temeraire series? Do you have any plans to start another series at some point in the future?
Naomi Novik responds: Yes, the Temeraire series will end with book 9, as yet untitled, which will bring the Napoleonic Wars to a close. There may be more adventures in the Temeraire universe from me after that, but if so I think they will be set in different eras and/or places.

So there may be more of him in another time another place and yes you guessed right. :mrgreen:

Well, the name is from the French for "foolhardy".
It also means foolishly brave. One who is téméraire launches oneself into battle without consideration for the consequences.

Yes, in the books the dragon is named specifically after the French vessel called Temeraire, which was captured in the Napoleonic wars. (it's a really interesting series, based on that era but with dragons included in the mix as war vessels themselves!)
