The riveting conclusion to Scott Westerfeld's New York Times bestselling trilogy that's "sure to become a classic" (School Library Journal). Alek and Deryn are on the last leg of their round-the-world quest to end World War I, reclaim Alek's throne as Prince of Austria, and finally fall in love. The first two objectives are complicated by the fact that their ship, the Leviathan, continues to detour farther away from the heart of the war (and crown). And the love thing would be a lot easier if Alek knew Deryn was a girl. (She has to pose as a boy in order to serve in the British Airforce.) And if they weren't technically enemies. The tension thickens as the Leviathan steams toward New York City with a homicidal lunatic onboard: secrets suddenly unravel, characters reappear, and nothing is at it seems in this thunderous conclusion to Scott Westerfeld's brilliant trilogy.

"Alan Cumming enthusiastically narrates the continuing airship adventures of Prince Alek, heir to Austria, and Midship(wo)man Deryn/Dylan Sharp as they fly from Istanbul to New York, intent on stopping WWI. Stops in Siberia, Japan, California, and Mexico afford ample opportunity to deploy a range of accents, and Cumming is remarkably skillful at alternating between Deryn's Scots brogue and Alek's German accent in rapid dialogue. A questionable Transylvanian singsong voice for Nikola Tesla is a comic reminder that these adventures are over the top and the listener should just hang on for the ride. Their time aboard the LEVIATHAN has ended, but Westerfeld hints that it's not the last we've seen of the duo. One hopes that the engaging Cumming will continue to soar with them. M.M.O.
