Synopses & Reviews
Alek and Deryn are on the last leg of their round-the-world quest to end World War I, reclaim Alekand#8217;s throne as prince of Austria, and finally fall in love. The first two objectives are complicated by the fact that their ship, the andlt;Iandgt;andlt;/Iandgt; andlt;Iandgt;Leviathanandlt;/Iandgt;, continues to detour farther away from the heart of the war (and crown). And the love thing would be a lot easier if Alek knew Deryn was a girl. (She has to pose as a boy in order to serve in the British Air Service.) And if they werenand#8217;t technically enemies.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;The tension thickens as the andlt;Iandgt;Leviathanandlt;/Iandgt; steams toward New York City with a homicidal lunatic on board: secrets suddenly unravel, characters reappear, and nothing is at it seems in this thunderous conclusion to Scott Westerfeldand#8217;s brilliant trilogy.
The final book in Westerfeld's masterful trilogy that SLJ reviewed as “sure to become a classic.”
