This book is so amazing! It is one of my top favorite books.

Aleksandar, son of Franz Ferdinand, the Archduke of Austria, is running from his uncle, the tsar. He doesn't know why. He only knows that his parents were assisinated in Serbia--and that a war is coming.

Deryn Sharp is a girl in a boy's world. All she wants is to be a midshipsman on an airship, like her brother and her deceased father. But she's a girl. And girls don't fly. So with a convincing disguise, she comes aboard the ship Leviathan. Every moment she's protecting her real identity. It becomes a lot harder when a strange boy from the enemy side arrives on board. This boy desperately needs her help.

Will Deryn help Alek?


If you love steampunk or sassy female protagonists, I so recommend this book to you. You won't regret reading it!
