Very Interesting

It's a great way to learn some WW1 facts, and the machine vs fabricated animals make it easily memorable.


The book "Leviathan" is great and energetic!


This book is awesome! There's so much action and suspense in it!


Leviathan is a awesome book full of action and adventure. I could never put this book down, and I look forward to the next books!


Leviathan is in a fairly unique genre- it is a real historical event place in a science fiction world. The events of WW1 are mostly accurate, however, and this book is a great way to get a basic idea of it, and actually remember it, unlike some things you learn in history class. This book also is a very exciting adventure story, and you find yourself getting caught up rooting for the main characters. It's a fantastic read and I would highly recommend it.


I loved the book and could not put it down. The pictures in it are great and theres a cool plot. Continue reading the other books in the series; you won't regret it!

Great read!

throughout this whole book there wasnt a page that was boring. Every page brought a new surprise and never-ending action.
