In the past couple of weeks, I’ve been reading a lot of BL Novels, that are quite mediocre, but is something I consider to be fast and easy read. Two days ago, I started on The Leviathan Trilogy by Scott Westerfeld.
OMG. As a fan of alternate history, steampunk, and young adult, this trilogy was something I’d looked forward to reading, but at the same time I was worried that it’d be a colossal mess. My fears proved to be wrong, and I was swept away in a thrilling adventure with Prince Aleksander and Deryn Sharp, and their world of Clankers and Darwinists. I adored the whole premise of the plot, filled with a fascinating world where DNA fabrication is the way of life with steam-powered machines. I enjoyed watching Alek and Deryn grow into their characters, as well as the diverse group of the supporting cast. I geeked over all the historical figures that appeared in the trilogy, and it was a good refresher for the WWI era.
Bottom line, I am glad I read this trilogy. I just wished I’d known about it earlier!
