"A good tale, written with punch and urgently topical." Nick Tucker,
"When a book pursues you into your dreams, you can't ignore it."
The Sunday Telegraph
"Imaginatively lacing 'what was' with 'what could have been' Scott Westerfeld's latest foray lends the stylish genre of 'steampunk' ever greater charisma... truly entrancing. The supporting illustrations of Keith Thompson illuminate the exciting and cinematic quality of this alternative history. There are some books you never want to end, however with a sequel in the pipeline this compelling journey is far from over." John Lloyd, Waterstone's Bath
"a story that develops with ease and pace, fleshed out with vivid descriptions and well-developed characters that hold the attention and tug at the heartstrings. The sweet and skilled illustrations by Keith Thompson add to the overall nostalgia Leviathan manages to create for a time and place that never quite existed. A fine example of steampunk fiction, Westerfield's latest is a worthwhile read." Nadine Monem, on totalscifionline.com
