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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The action is nonstop in Westerfeld’s thrilling sequel to last year’s Leviathan—fans of that book won’t  be disappointed…This exciting and inventive tale of military conflict and wildly reimaged history should captivate a wide range of readers.”  Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Westerfeld’s brilliantly constructed imaginary world will capture readers from the first page. Full of nonstop action.”  School Library Journal (starred review)
“If you’ve read the first two books, I’m sure you don’t need convincing to pick this one up. If you haven’t, there’s no time like the present…If you enjoy a good adventure, a bit of steampunk, and a good alternate history, you’ll be doing yourself a disservice if you don’t read them.” Wired
