Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At the end of Leviathan, our heroes Alek and Deryn were aboard a mighty air ship 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 jeopardized 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.

Synopsis:

The sequel to Leviathan continues in an alternate 1914 Europe where Austrian Prince Alek and Deryn, a girl disguised as a male in the British Air Service, are attempting to deliver a secret package and, still hiding respective truths about their identities, land in a hostile, politically-charged Constantinople, where they must forfeit their airship, The Leviathan, in order to survive. 250,000 first printing.

Synopsis:

Continues the story of Austrian Prince Alek who, in an alternate 1914 Europe, eludes the Germans by traveling in the Leviathan to Constantinople, where he faces a whole new kind of genetically-engineered warships.
