Hopefully by the end of 2016, my TBR mountain will be only a foothill.
This week I'm turning the spotlight on Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld. I bought this one and the rest of the trilogy on October 26, 2010 when I met Mr. Westerfeld at a book signing at the Wild Rumpus bookstore in Minneapolis.
It is the cusp of World War I. The Austro-Hungarians and Germans have their Clankers, steam-driven iron machines loaded with guns and ammunition. The British Darwinists employ genetically fabricated animals as their weaponry. Their Leviathan is a whale airship, and the most masterful beast in the British fleet.I like steampunk and I have read and enjoyed other books by Westerfeld. I don't know why these have been on the stack so long.
Aleksandar Ferdinand, a Clanker, and Deryn Sharp, a Darwinist, are on opposite sides of the war. But their paths cross in the most unexpected way, taking them both aboard the Leviathan on a fantastical, around-the-world adventure….One that will change both their lives forever.
Have you read this series? Should I move it up the stack?
