Leviathan trilogy: Leviathan; Behemoth; Goliath by Scott Westerfeld

Leviathan; Behemoth; Goliath - Scott Westerfeld

Read by Tiffany: A wonderful steampunked alternate history of WWI, with the 'Darwinists' of England and Allies fabricating 'beasties', and the Germanic ‘Clanker’ block manufacturing fantastic machines, the story starts with the assassination of the Austrian archduke and sweeps into the descent of Europe to war.Deryn and Alek are lovely characters with interesting voices (Deryn's scottish idiom is very colourful ;) ). The story whizzes along at a cracking pace, Goliath has a side serve of mad scientist (Nikola Tesla), and the ending is very satisfying.
