On My Wishlist: Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld

On My Wishlist is a weekly event hosted by Cosy Books that showcases the books at the top of our wishlists. Old, new, or yet to be released titles are all welcome.
On My Wishlist this week:
Publisher: Simon Pulse   Publication Date: 10/6/09
Prince Aleksander, would-be heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, is on the run. His own people have turned on him. His title is worthless. All he has is a battletorn war machine and a loyal crew of men.

Deryn Sharp is a commoner, 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 World War I brewing, Alek and Deryn’s paths cross in the most unexpected way…taking them on a fantastical, around-the-world adventure that will change both their lives forever.

Publisher: Simon Pulse   Publication Date: 10/5/10
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.

I have the third book in this series, but since I can’t stand to read a series out of order I really want these two books! 🙂

  1. I've been wanting this series too! I've heard lots of good things about it but I wouldn't pick it up from the bookstore only by the synopsis. I might borrow it from the library and if it lives up to expectations I will buy myself a copy. Great picks! The covers are awesome :P- KimMy Wishlist
