A New York Times Bestselling Author -- The Leviathan arrives in Constantinople, a city where Clanker culture and Darwinist principles intersect in the most intriguing ways. Dr. Barlow and Deryn deliver their precious cargo to the Sultan, but their peace-keeping mission goes unexpectedly -- and disastrously -- awry. Now the only way to save themselves in this hostile, politically-charged city, is for Dr. Barlow to offer up the thing that matters most: the airship. Publishers Weekly,The action is nonstop in Westerfeld's thrilling sequel to last year's Leviathan-fans of that book won't be disappointed. It's 1914 in the author's alternate world, the great powers are moving toward full-scale war, and Deryn, still posing as a boy, has found a place as a midshipman aboard the gigantic, living British airship Leviathan as it sails east on its secret mission to Istanbul. When Austria-Hungary enters the conflict, her friend Alek, the runaway heir to that empire, realizes that he must escape from the airship to avoid imprisonment, giving Deryn "a chance not just to help Alek but to change the course of the whole barking war." Battles abound between eccentric fighting machines and even stranger fabricated "beasties" as Deryn and Alek prove their courage and ingenuity while putting themselves in harm's way. This exciting and inventive tale of military conflict and wildly reimagined history should captivate a wide range of readers. Thompson's evocative and detailed spot art (as well as the luridly gorgeous endpapers) only sweetens the deal. Ages 12-up. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
