Alek and Deryn are on the last leg of their round-the-world quest to end World War I, reclaim Alek’s throne as Prince of Austria, and finally fall in love. The first two objectives are complicated by the fact that their ship, the Leviathan, continues to detour farther away from the heart of the war (and crown). And the love thing would be a lot easier if Alek knew Deryn was a girl. (She has to pose as a boy in order to serve in the British Airforce.) And if they weren’t technically enemies.
The tension thickens as the Leviathan steams toward New York City with a homicidal lunatic onboard: secrets suddenly unravel, characters reappear, and nothing is at it seems in this thunderous conclusion to Scott Westerfeld’s brilliant trilogy.

What did you love best about Goliath?
I loved their visit to Japan the best. Deryn and Aleks eat noodles at a roving noodle cart, and that scene has stuck in my mind!
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Well, the ending is left open so that there could be a sequel. Please, Mr Westerfeld, we'd like more Deryn and Alek!
What about Alan Cumming’s performance did you like?
He's hilarious and does such a funny job with the German accents.
Any additional comments?
If you have listened to the earlier two, you are already downloading this one! If you haven't, go download Leviathan and you'll soon be downloading this one as well. ;)

A Satisfying Conclusion to a Wonderful Trilogy!
So often young adult series' with a romantic subplot wrap up the trllogy by focusing on the romance and in doing so betray the swashbuckling and independent female protagonists character (yes Hunger Games, I am looking at you). No so with Goliath, which wraps up the adventure and romance of the previous two installments without losing the spirit of adventure that made the first two books so entertaining. I highly recommend this series!
