Alek and Deryn are on the last leg of their round-the-world quest to end World War I, reclaim Alek’s throne as prince of Austria, and finally fall in love. The first two objectives are complicated by the fact that their ship, the Leviathan, 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 weren’t technically enemies.

Romance and steampunk is what I’m assuming go hand in hand in most works of fiction, and although I always tend to hope that science fiction novels stay as far away from romantic sub-plots as possible, I found myself looking for the opposite in this instance.This series in its entirety has received ...
I didn't quite enjoy it as much as Behemoth but it was a great finish to amazing trilogy.
My favorite of the trilogy! Each book has been successively better in holding my interest, to the point where I nearly snuck this book into class to keep reading it.Alek has really come into his own in this book - while Deryn was much more the driver of the action in the first two books, Alek takes ...
