The Leviathan arrives in Constantinople, a city where Clanker culture and Darwinst principles intersect in the most intriguing ways. Dr Barlow and Deryn deliver their precious cargo to the Sultan, but their peace-keeping mission goes unexpectedly - and disastrously - awry. Now the only way to save themselves in this hostile, politically-charged city is for Dr Barlow to offer up the thing that matters most: the air ship. Alek escapes from his prison camp and goes on the run with his men and the loris while Count Volger stays behind to fend-off the pursuit, forcing Alek to take on new responsibilities. Meanwhile a secret mission lands Deryn in serious danger... and leads both teens to re-evaluate their precarious situations in the world.

Reviews

Scott Westerfeld and Alan Cumming keep the action flying along in this spellbinding sequel (2010) to Leviathan (2009, both S & S). In the first book, Deryn posed as a boy in order to serve in the British Air Service, and this time around, she's still dealing with her feelings for fugitive Prince Alek. The Leviathan is headed for Istanbul, and Deryn and Alek hope they can stop the bloody battle that has been brewing in Europe. But nothing goes as planned. Westerfeld's ingenious juxtaposition of actual World War II events with the fantastic (steampunk) is brought to life by Cumming's spot-on vocalization. His German/Austrian accent is flawless, Deryn's Scottish brogue is pitch-perfect, and his ability to change his inflection for each character is incredible. (c) Copyright 2011.
