Crucible of Gold by Naomi Novik

There should have been a bit of excitement when the ship Lawrence and Temeraire and some others are on goes down. Lawrence looses a friend on the ship when it goes down. Many lives are lost as the dragons take on as many as they can but can only safely hold so many, and they are forced to leave many men still struggling in the water. However, when you suspect the ship may go down the way it did, it's just another "yep, it happened" moment.
