Alec, son of the Archduke, finds out that his parents have been murdered. Now he is on the run with a group of men and a walker, a sort of fighting machine. Deryn loves being airborne and can’t wait to be again. She only has to pass the Airmans Middy’s test to get into the King’s Service – oh, and also pass as a boy; there’s no way they’d let a girl fly.
Leviathan was a pretty good book. I liked all the science involved in it. It was interesting how it was a parallel history. Right now would have been so different if what was mentioned in the book had occurred. I also like the illustrations. They were very detailed and they matched the story.
