Leviathan Review

Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld


Cover------->




Synopsis:

    Prince Aleksander, would-be heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, is on the run. His own people  
    have turned on him. His title is worthless. All he has is a battletorn war machine and a loyal crew
     of men.

Deryn Sharp is a commoner, disguised as a boy in the British Air Service. She's a brilliant airman.

     But her secret is in constant danger of being discovered.

With World War I brewing, Alek and Deryn's paths cross in the most unexpected way…taking them

     on a fantastical, around-the-world adventure that will change both their lives forever.


 

Review:

     The artwork on the cover is one of the many reasons this book landed a spot on my "special" shelf. This is the first steampunk novel I picked up and as I continue the adventure with Alek and Deryn I will also be reading more of this subgenre. Although meant for a younger audience I still enjoyed the idea of Deryn dressing up as a boy to fight for what she believed in. She is very heartfelt and cares a lot about her family and friends. She reminded me of "Lord of The Rings Éowyn. "
    Alek seems like he has a lot of responsibilities for one as young as he is. The Count should really learn to help the boy and not constantly make him look like a failure. I had my doubts about Alek but after the big *spoiler* fight scene he earned my respect.
    Scott wrote this amazing story and Keith did an amazing job illustrating the scenes in my head onto paper. I cannot wait to continue this amazing Trilogy which happens to be sitting on my shelf


Overall Rating:

     Cover:3.5/5
     Plot:4/5
     Characters: 4/5
     Overall: 3.5/5
