Behemoth (Leviathan, #2)Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld
Series: Leviathan, 2
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Second in the Leviathan steampunk series for Young Adults.

Excellent! I do like how Westerfeld blends our version of history with his version. A very successful series of escapes, revolution, disguises, sabotage, and secrets culminating in a wee bit of disaster for Alek.

Leviathan has made it to Constantinople, I mean, Istanbul, and we are treated to a blend of mekaniks and beasties in the Ottoman Empire along with a lot of cloak-and-dagger. Can’t wait to read Goliath, 3.
