Leviathan Trilogy #02: Behemothby Scott Westerfeld
Synopses & Reviews
At the end of Leviathan, our heroes Alek and Deryn were aboard a mighty airship heading toward Constantinople to deliver a secret package. But their secrets—Alek’s family is responsible for starting World War I, and Deryn is a girl passing as a guy in the British Air Service—are in jeopardy when their mission goes awry. The only way to save themselves in a hostile, politically charged city is to offer up the thing that matters most—their airship, the Leviathan .
In this striking futuristic rendition of an alternate past where machines are pitted against genetically modified beasts in the First World War, lines between allies and enemies blur, and the consequences are Behemoth .
The behemoth is the fiercest creature in the British navy. It can swallow enemy battleships with one bite. The Darwinists will need it, now that they are at war with the Clanker Powers. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Deryn is a girl posing as a boy in the British Air Service, and Alek is the heir to an empire posing as a commoner. Finally together aboard the airship Leviathan, they hope to bring the war to a halt. But when disaster strikes the Leviathan's peacekeeping mission, they find themselves alone and hunted in enemy territory. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Alek and Deryn will need great skill, new allies, and brave hearts to face whatand#8217;s ahead.
