From the Publisher
It is the cusp of World War I. The Austro-Hungarians and Germans
have their Clankers, steam-driven iron machines loaded with guns
and ammunition. The British Darwinists employ genetically
fabricated animals as their weaponry. Their Leviathan
whale airship, and the most masterful beast in the British fleet.
Aleksandar Ferdinand, a Clanker, and Deryn Sharp, a Darwinist,
are on opposite sides of the war. But their paths cross in the most
unexpected way, taking them both aboard the Leviathan on a
fantastical, around-the-world adventure….One that will change both
their lives forever.
