Summary:
Scott Westerfeld presents the sequel to his hit steampunk novel, Leviathan. In the midst of conflict with the Clankers, the Darwinists' war efforts rely on the behemoth, the largest, most feared creature in the British navy. Deryn, posing as a boy so that she may serve in the Air Service, finds herself aboard the Leviathan along with Alek, the heir to the empire, who is also in disguise. However, when the Leviathan's mission goes awry, Alek and Deryn must team up and outrun the relentless enemy.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
Alek raised his sword. "On guard, sir!"

Deryn hefted her own weapon, studying Alek's pose. His feet were splayed at right angles, his left arm sticking out behind like the handle of a teacup. His fencing armor made him look like a walking quilt. Even with his sword pointed straight at her, he looked barking silly.

"Do I have to stand like that?" she asked.

"If you want to be a proper fencer, yes."

"A proper idiot, more like," Deryn muttered, wishing again that her first lesson were someplace less public. A dozen crewmen were watching, along with a pair of curious hydrogen sniffers. But Mr. Rigby, the bosun, had forbidden swordplay inside the airship.

She sighed, raised her saber, and tried to imitate Alek's pose.

Publisher Description:
The behemoth is the fiercest creature in the British navy. It can swallow enemy battleships with one bite. The Darwinists will need it, now that they are at war with the Clanker Powers.

Deryn is a girl posing as a boy in the British Air Service, and Alek is the heir to an empire posing as a commoner. Finally together aboard the airship Leviathan, they hope to bring the war to a halt. But when disaster strikes the Leviathan's peacekeeping mission, they find themselves alone and hunted in enemy territory. Alek and Deryn will need great skill, new allies, and brave hearts to face what's ahead.
