In Scott Westerfeld's well-built steampunk universe, it's the eve of World War I between the Darwinists and the Clankers. Deryn and her friend Alek have gotten work aboard the tremendous airship Leviathan. Still posing as a boy, Deryn longs for adventure and wants to be part of the forces that end the war. Alek is also hiding his true identity, one of royalty, and discovery means death. When they find themselves in the middle of a catastrophe, the pair makes a daring team bent on saving the world. This is the second book in the bestselling Leviathan trilogy. With lovely, detailed illustrations.
