It is the cusp of World War I, and all the European powers are arming up. The Austro-Hungarians and Germans have their Clankers, steam-driven iron machines loaded with guns and ammunition. The British Darwinists employ fabricated animals as their weaponry. The Leviathan is a living airship, the most formidable airbeast in the skies of Europe. Aleksandar Ferdinand, prince of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, is on the run. His own people have turned on him. His title is worthless. All he has is a battle-torn Stormwalker and a loyal crew of men. Deryn Sharp is a commoner, a girl disguised as a boy in the British Air Service. She's a brilliant airman. But her secret is in constant danger of being discovered. With the Great War brewing, Alek's and Deryn's paths cross in the most unexpected way - taking them both aboard the Leviathan on a fantastical, around-the-world adventure. One that will change both their lives forever.
First off, I would like to say that I have been a fan of Mr. Westerfeld from the start. I loke Scott' style and his amazing character building skills really make his books amazing. As a writer, I myself am often times very critical when it comes to other people's work, but when it comes to all this Westerfeld I am often left without anything to complain about. Leviathan was no exception. Westerfeld's unique characters tell a story of an alternate history taking place in 1914 our 2 main protagonists (Deryn Sharp and Alek Ferdinand, a fictional son of the Archduke) explore many historical events that took place during that time period while also adding a science ficting twist to it. Leviathan is probably the best book I've read this year. I could go on and on about it. I was priveliged enough to get an ARC and I gaurentee that readers will be satisfied! Hope you enjoy the book as much as I did! :D ~CHLOE
