Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld

This sequel is just as fun as the first, Leviathan. If you haven't read that one yet, you might want to miss this review because it will contain spoilers. With the Austrians and British working together The Leviathan makes it to Istanbul, but the British do not receive the welcome they had hoped for. Istanbul is full of Germans, and the Sultan has just made a German military officer the head of the Navy. Dr. Barlow and the Leviathan must switch to plan B which includes sabotage. Alek and the Austrians have a plan of their own. Alek is able to escape the Leviathan with his chief engineer, but instead of disappearing into the wilds of Turkey, as his aid, Volga, had suggested, he finds himself involved with Turkish rebels, seeking to over throw the government. This book has new machines and new "Beasties." There are exciting battle scenes and a cute love, or rather, crush triangle. I am so glad the final book, Goliath, is out. I just put it on hold. (485 p)
