Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The second book in the Leviathan trilogy was just as good as the first. Genetically altered or fabricated creatures and steam powered robots all set in World War I. Westerfeld paints a picture so vivid that you think you are there, wonder what is real and what is fantasy, and wishing some of the fantasy could be reality.
The characters are so believable. Even though there is a large cast, Westerfeld describes them all so well that nobody gets lost in the shadows.
Westerfeld definitely created another page turner as you wonder if Prince Aleksander will be caught and by whom, will Dylan’s secret identity be discovered and what on earth Dr. Barlow’s fabricated creature is.
Anyone who likes science fiction from middle grade and up should check out the Leviathan trilogy.
