Knighthood of the Dragon by Chris Bunch is the second book in the Dragonmaster trilogy. This is excellent military fantasy even if it's quite apparent what historical events he's borrowed from. The plot continues directly on from Dragonmaster. Basically dragons are used much like aviation in WWI. Characters attempt to figure out how best to use them along the way they discover aerial bombing and firestorms. There is a rather weak ethical discussion about the use of these tactics. The action scenes are extremely well done. Not to give anything away I'm not too sure what the third book will deal with since the major storyline seems to be concluded.
