“Leviathan is a fantastic and beautifully illustrated steampunk version of The Great War. In this alternate universe, the Clankers put their faith in elaborate steam-powered machines and the Darwinists manage huge living airships that are whole ecosystems. But this is mostly the story of two 15-year-olds who are both hiding secrets. Prepare yourself for an adventurous ride.”
— Joanne R. Fritz, Chester County Book & Music Company, West Chester, PA
