Fantasy Steampunk | Young Adult
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. Their Leviathan is a whale airship, and
the most masterful beast in the British fleet.
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 way...taking them both aboard the
Leviathan on a fantastical, around-the-world adventure. One
that will change both their lives forever.
