Summer: The smaller egg hatches and as Rankin regards the dragonets survival as unlikely, opts to end its life to the opposition of Laurence and Temeraire. The dragonet's life is saved when he is harnessed by Demane, who subsequently names the dragonet [[Kulingile]].

Autumn: A Royal Naval squadron under the command of Captain Nesbit Willoughby, arrives at the Chinese-Larrakia trading port and attempts to conquer it. The Chinese defeat the Naval squadron using unorthodox tactics involving sea-serpents and the crews of the ships, including Captain Willoughby himself, are only saved from certain death by Laurence, Temeraire and the rest of their group. The crews are then taken to Sydney, aided by Laurence and Temeraire's group.

Mid Spring: De Guignes maroons the Laurence, Temeraire and the rest of the British party on an island, partly because the Triomphe is overloaded but mostly with the purpose of picking them up again on the voyage home, as they are more likely to be weaker and complacent then. However, despite an attempted mutiny from the pressed sailors, the party discovers a wrecked privateer after reconnoitering the island, and salvage enough resources to make a flight to the South-American mainland.

Late Spring/Early Summer: The French party arrives in the Inca capital of Cusco, followed by the British party a few days later. In the coming days, both parties state their cases to the Incan Empress Anhuarque, the French hope to marry her to Napoleon (now divorced) while the British hope to marry her to Granby (very much against it) in order to secure an alliance with their respective nations, and at first she leans towards the British but turns towards the French after the arrival of Napoleon and Lien. Iskierka, annoyed by [[Maila Yupanqui]]'s shifting attention towards Lien (after previously showing attention to her), convinces Temeraire to mate with her. Laurence and Temeraire's party are chased out of the Inca Empire and subsequently journey towards the Brazilian Empire. During the British journey to Cusco, Hammond attracts the attention of the Incan dragon Churki, who then joins the party in hopes of setting up an ayllu with Hammond (to his dismay).

Mid Summer: Laurence and Temeraire's party arrive at the ruins of Rio de Janiero and bring the Portuguese into diplomatic negotiations with the Tswana, in order to end the conflict and unify their forces in the face of a prospective Incan invasion. At around the same time, Lily and Maximus and the rest of the formation arrive in Brazil and rejoin Laurence and Temeraire. With their numbers bolstered Laurence undertakes a raid to capture the French dragon transport fleet in Rio harbour, which is successful.

Late July/Early August: The Chinese Aerial legions return to the war, this time commanded by Zhao Lien, crossing the Caucasus mountains to reach the Allied army. After mediating fruitless negotiations between Napoleon and the Sixth Coalition, the Austrian Habsburg Empire declares war on France. Around this time, Wellington and Roland cross the Pyrenees and invade southern France.

August: Napoleon and his allies engage with the Coalition forces of Russia, Prussia, Britain, Austria and China at the [[Battle of Reichenbach]]. After many hours of fighting, whereupon the town is reduced to ruin, Napoleon is abandoned by the Inca and betrayed by the Tswana, leaving him defeated and captured, along with Lien, personally by Laurence and Temeraire. Following the battle, Napoleon is forced to abdicate the throne in favour of his eldest son and go into exile, along with Lien, to St Helena, as part of a peace treaty that is otherwise surprisingly lenient towards France. Laurence, during the proceedings, quickly realises that the Inca retreat was deliberately planned by Anhuarque and Talleyrand, who have collaborated with the Sixth Coalition (via Hammond and Metternich) to do so in order to secure a more favourable peace for France.

Late Autumn: Napoleon and Lien are exiled to the Atlantic island of St Helena. Ning decides to return to China to serve Prince Mianning, now the Daoguang Emperor (though Temeraire suspects she will find excuses to visit him). Laurence retires from the Royal Aerial Corps and considers his and Temeraire's future, whereupon the Celestial suggests that he enters Parliament as a member for one of the newly created Dragon constituencies.
