Format: Paperback
I loved this trilogy! Even more so than the Hunger Games trilogy and I think that's saying something. It's just that good. The trilogy takes place in an alternate version of WWI where the story focuses on the two main protagonists, Aleksander, the prince of Austria, (a Clanker, who put their faith in machines) who's parents have just been assassinated must flee from the Germans with his few most trusted servants and escape to the mountains, while the other protagonist, Deryn, (a Darwinist, who put their fate in fabricated animals) who is a girl posing as a boy named Dylan so that she may enter the airservice and serve on board the famous airship, Leviathan. By fate or destiny, Alek and Deryn meet, become friends despite their differences, and together fight in great battles, help a revolution in Constinibul, (I hope I'm spelling that right :) ) and save the entire city of New York from a huge Tesla cannon. Since this is an alternate version of WWI, there are real people and events that take place in the trilogy, but there is a whole bunch of fiction as well. From huge battle walkers, to fabricated toads that can memorize conversations and say them back to you. (remember, this is supposed to take place during WWI so they didn't have tape recorders yet.) This is a wounderful trilogy that is full of action, adventure, and some romance. I highly recommend this trilogy to you. It is available in hardback and paperback and through Amazon's Kindle service. All three at a good price. SOMEBODY PLEASE MAKE A MOVIE TRILOGY OF THIS! :)

Scott Westerfeld is an amazing author that makes his characters and worlds feel very realistic. Slang peppers the books but it's easy to understand and I have found myself using some of it in my every day conversations. I bought this set for my dad because I loved it so much. Anyone from 11-110 who loves steampunk, alternate history or strong young female heroines will love this series. Don't be a dumkopf and buy this set today!

A great series that my grandson enjoyed.....even more surprising, so did his Grandmother! Buy the "The Manual of Aeronautics: An Illustrated Guide to the Leviathan Series" as well for a REAL treat. I'm a retired graphic illustrator and what a treat to review the imaginative illustrations! KUDOs to the author and illustrator!

This was a leap of faith for me as I had not had any prior familiarity with Scott Westerfeld, nor any of his work. But what a wonderful gamble it proved to be!

The Leviathan world seems to have diverged from our own when Charles Darwin was able to figure out how to create new living "fabrications" by bio-engineering the life threads of existing beings. The title of the first book (and the series), "Leviathan", takes its name from one such "fabrication", or "fab": a gigantic hydrogen-breathing living airship that had been fabricated from, among other creatures, a whale!

Not everyone is sold on the idea of having "fabs" around, however. The world, in fact, seems to have been divided into two general camps: Darwinists and Clankers. While Darwinists have embraced the use of "fabs", Clankers have shunned "fabs" and instead have hinged technological progress on the development of machinery (albeit ones that are fantastically different from the those that had been prevalent by the same time in our own world's history).

The story follows the adventures of Alek and Deryn, two headstrong youngsters who find themselves having to confront considerable obstacles to their aspirations. Alek is Prince Aleksandar of Hohenberg, son of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the heir to the throne of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. His royal lineage notwithstanding, Alek does not have any direct route towards becoming heir-apparent -- much more, Emperor. The current emperor, Franz Joseph, had decreed that the Archduke's marriage to Sophie Chotek would be merely morgantic; consequently, children borne of the marriage would not be able to inherit the Archduke's titles, including being designated as the heir-apparent.

Deryn is Deryn Sharp, a Scottish commoner with a passion for airships.

I just started reading this series and I am hooked!! If you are into the Steampunk society/Darwinism feel then you will absolutely love this series! It has action, romance, and comedy. It has robot tech and animalistic beings on opposite sides of a war which a group of people have to come together to fight. You will not be disappointed in this series!

We already own this set but ordered it for a young friend. Great series, one of the best he's written. I rarely find an author who can switch stories and genres so easily as Westerfeld. Love everything he's published.

Westerfeld's trilogy is not only fun steampunk, but it has a lot of WWI history in it too. Perfect for someone who likes historical novels AND scifi. And the best part, each novel includes beautiful illustrations by Keith Thompson to help you visualize the fabricated beasties and monstrous walkers.
