"Waiting" Wednesday: Leviathan

Its been ages since I've done one of these Waiting on Wednesday posts but Scott Westerfeld posted the (previously top-secret) cover art of his newest yesterday and I had to share. Westerfeld - you know, the guy who wrote the Uglies series, the Midnighters trilogy (review), and Peeps and The Last Days (review) - owns me. I'd just about follow him off a cliff - or at the very least into the 1910's.

Leviathan comes out in October. There's no description on Amazon yet, but here's what Scott had to say on his blog:
Leviathan is set in an alternate world in which Charles Darwin discovered biotechnology. So the British Empire was built on the backs of strange, fabricated beasties. Living airships! Fighting kraken! Message lizards!
(Insert me making Westerfeld-zombie-follower noise here.) Must. read.

PS: I forgot to mention - "Waiting On" Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.


  1. Haven't read any of his books but I see them everywhere. Hope you enjoy it!

  2. Not so sure about this premise. But HE is awesome, so heck yeah I want it!

  3. Gotta love the Westerfeld!I'm excited about this too! I hope you enjoy reading it.
