Alek, a prince without a throne, is running from his own people. He has only one small fighting machine and an even smaller band of men to keep him alive. Deryn is a girl disguised as a boy in the British Air service. She must fight for her country, and keep her secret at all costs. Alek and Deryn are thrown together aboard the mighty airship Leviathan. jThough they fight side by side, their worlds are far appart. British fabricated beasts versus German steam-powered war machines. They are enemies with everything to lose, yet somehow destines to be together. This book is fictional, but action packed look on history. It is a book I found highly enjoyable and recommend.
