Giada's mini review of Leviathan:

Much of steampunk is set in Victorian-era settings, however Westerfeld brings us to the heart of Europe at the dawn of the First World War (even if the First World War remains in the background).

Through the eyes of Deryn and Alek, we observe the war from two opposing factions: the Darwinists and the Clankers. The two points of view alternate regularly, switching from one character to another every two chapters.

The novel is smooth and without any dead spots, the pace is always high.

Leviathan is an introduction to what will become the real focus of the story. There are still many mysteries to be revealed and many questions that need answers.
