Review written by volunteer Robert D.
The final book in Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan Trilogy is out! Goliath picks up where the last book, Behemoth, left off. Deryn and Alek have left Constantinople in the Leviathan, a British airship made from a genetically engineered whale with a weaponized ecosystem at the crew's command. They begin making their way towards Russia, which is England's ally and one of the great Darwenist powers of Europe in this this alternate World War I setting. In Russia, they meet a certain Clanker (technology-user) scientist who claims to have a weapon that will end all wars.
For those who have read the first two books, picking this one up is a foregone conclusion. For those who haven't yet checked out the now complete Leviathan Trilogy, do so! Westerfeld has done a great job in adapting the events of World War I for this alternate universe. For people interested in Steampunk, Dieselpunk, and Biopunk this is a great introductory novel!
