Goliath, by Scott Westerfeld

goliathGoliath is the third book in the Leviathan trilogy, an alternate history of WWI where countries are divided between Darwinist and Industrial lines. I was a big fan of the first book in the series, but the second book bored me a little and I worried I wouldn’t like this third book when I went into it, especially as I tend not to like Westerfeld’s trilogy endings as much as the other books. I needn’t have worried. Goliath was by far my favorite book in the series. I adored the way it ended! I loved how much history Westerfeld brought in, and that’s coming from a girl who is not normally a fan of history at all! I also really loved Bovril, a special character I won’t say anything about since it would involve spoilers, but again my love for him is contrary to all my normal likes/dislikes while reading books. Westerfeld remains one of my very favorite YA authors, and the best thing about reading this series was getting to share it with my oldest son, who also really enjoyed it.

First book: Leviathan
Second book: Behemoth
