 By Scott Westerfeld 

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 picked up Behemoth under a strong recommendation from a friend, I had read the first book several months before, and had thoroughly enjoyed it, so I had high hopes when I cracked the cover of this book, hopes that were met, and surpassed easily, I felt that Scott kept a strong grasp on the characters that he introduced me to in the first book, and made them grow seamlessly. Making me fall even more in love with Alek and Deryn all over again. I was drawn into the world of this book, and found myself having issues letting go, and honestly that is one sure sign of a good book, it sinks it’s giant Clanker claws into you and won’t let go, no matter how much you beg, and to be honest I’m not sure I would want it to. I would recommend this book to any steampunk bookworms, and hell even to some nonsteampunk bookworms.
