At the end of Leviathan, our heroes Alek and Deryn were aboard a mighty air ship heading toward Constantinople to deliver a secret package. But their secrets—Alek’s family is responsible for starting World War I, and Deryn is a girl passing as a guy in the British Air Service—are in jeopardy when their mission goes awry. The only way to save themselves in a hostile, politically charged city is to offer up the thing that matters most—their air ship.

In this striking futuristic rendition of an alternate past where machines are pitted against genetically modified beasts in the first world war, lines between allies and enemies blur, and the consequences are Behemoth .

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Jon | 2/6/2014

    " Another great book from Westerfield. Can't wait to read Goliath, on the other hand I don't want the series to end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Shanda | 2/3/2014

    " YA steampunk, 2nd in the leviathan series "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Beth S. | 1/23/2014

    " This book was incredibly fun. I liked it even better than the first book in the trilogy, Leviathan. Westerfield does an amazing job of developing his characters while keeping the pace brisk and action packed. The alternative reality/historical fiction plot is imaginative and held my interest throughout, while also being well researched and true to the historical concepts or essence of WWI Europe. I can't wait for the third book to come out! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Tilden | 1/18/2014

    " Very good story, with good characters. Alan Cumming is a very good reader. I'll be sure and obtain more audio books that he's read. Can't wait to find out what happens in "Goliath." "
