Teaser Tuesday #18: Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab you current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from anywhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

Leviathan (Leviathan, #1)Summary from Goodreads: 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.

My Teaser: As they made their way toward the airship, Deryn grumbled under her breath. It was one thing to give up her berth for a renowned boffin on a secret mission, but if some daft beastie name Tazza was going to take her place, the world had gone completely barking spiders.

  12. Great story, great characters, great plot. Its ending though... it just kinda stops. Boom. The story isnt really small enough to be stuffed into a trillogy, it needs a fourth book to close it down. But still worth reading, of course.


Thanks for commenting! :D I love comments, so comment away! :D
