 Welcome to Wishful Wednesday!

  I love steampunk. Having said so, this week I wish I could grab the Leviathan series of Scott Westerfield. Not so long ago Brooke Bluestocking reviewed the second book “Behemot” but I would like to start from the first one, “Lewiathan”. This is a short summary from the page of the author himself:
“Prince Aleksander, would-be heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, is on the run. His own people have turned on him. His title is worthless. All he has is a battletorn war machine and a loyal crew of men.Deryn Sharp is a commoner, disguised as a boy in the British Air Service. She’s a brilliant airman. But her secret is in constant danger of being discovered.
With World War I brewing, Alek and Deryn’s paths cross in the most unexpected way…taking them on a fantastical, around-the-world adventure that will change both their lives forever.”
