It is the cusp of World War I, and all the European powers are arming up. The Austro-Hungarians and Germans have their Clankers, steam-driven iron machines loaded with guns and ammunition. The British Darwinists employ fabricated animals as their weaponry. The Leviathan is a living airship, the most formidable airbeast in the skies of Europe. Aleksandar Ferdinand, prince of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, is on the run. His own people have turned on him. His title is worthless. All he has is a battle-torn Stormwalker and a loyal crew of men. Deryn Sharp is a commoner, a girl 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 the Great War brewing, Alek's and Deryn's paths cross in the most unexpected wayEtaking them both aboard the Leviathan on a fantastical, around-the-world adventure. One that will change both their lives forever.

Professional reviews

"In this alternate history of WWI, Aleksandar Ferdinand is on the run from his former allies, accompanied by four of his loyal men, including his overbearing fencing master, Count Volger. Alan Cumming does an expert Austrian accent, capturing the power of Count Volger and the confusion of Alek. So convincing are those characters and accents that his remarkable portrayal of Deryn Sharp, a teenage girl masquerading as a boy, and her Scottish accent come as a complete surprise. Cumming's energy drives listeners to the inevitable meeting between Alek and Deryn aboard the giant airship LEVIATHAN. An afterword, read by the author, highlights the historical events described, and the cliffhanger ending will keep listeners waiting for the second book in Westerfeld's new series. E.N.
