    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 Airforce.) And if they weren’t technically enemies.

    The tension thickens as the Leviathan steams toward New York City with a homicidal lunatic on board....

    Story

    So often young adult series' with a romantic subplot wrap up the trllogy by focusing on the romance and in doing so betray the swashbuckling and independent female protagonists character (yes Hunger Games, I am looking at you). No so with Goliath, which wraps up the adventure and romance of the previous two installments without losing the spirit of adventure that made the first two books so entertaining. I highly recommend this series!
