Alek and Deryn are on the last leg of their round-the-world quest to end World War I, reclaim Alek’s throne as prince of Austria, and finally fall in love. The first two objectives are complicated by the fact that their ship, the Leviathan, continues to detour farther away from the heart of the war (and crown). And the love thing would be a lot easier if Alek knew Deryn was a girl. (She has to pose as a boy in order to serve in the British Air Service.) And if they weren’t technically enemies.

The tension thickens as the Leviathan steams toward New York City with a homicidal lunatic on board: secrets suddenly unravel, characters reappear, and nothing is at it seems in this thunderous conclusion to Scott Westerfeld’s brilliant trilogy.

    I think that this is a good book but it is not as good as the two books before. I really prefered the ones before. I think that author shouldn't have kept the series going. In this book, the British Airship Alek and Deryn are on, go over Russia and they notice a really weird spot, where they then find Nicholas Tesla and save him. There is a secret weapon that Tesla made which can stop the war but the Germans attack, when they are in America, causing the Americans to join the war with the British. My favorite part in this book is the ending, when Deryn and Alek realize they both love each other.

      This book is a page turner. The war is going on and Alek tries to stop it by helping Tesla. But in the end Alek kills tesla.
