Dylan and Alek are off to the Siberian wilds to pick up a mystery passenger who turns out to be an eccentric inventor claiming his latest invention – “Goliath” – is powerful enough to stop the war. Alek and Dylan become divided over whether or not to trust Tesla’s odd invention. Then Dylan’s (or Deryn’s) biggest secret is revealed to Alek — will their friendship survive?
Even though I haven’t read Behemoth, I had no trouble understanding what was going on. The plot was action-packed and the Darwinian creatures as creative as they were in the first book. The similar cover styles make this trio easily identifiable and the drawing add a unique flair to the books. This is a wonderful addition to the Leviathan series –a powerful book full of action, adventure, and two types of love — the kind between friends and something stronger. I hope another book is on the way!
