Leviathan Series

News Flash: The Manual of Aeronautics is OUT NOW!

It’s in bookstores everywhere, or you can order it online at Powell’s, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, or IndieBound.

So, wait. What is the Leviathan series? It’s these three novels:

Prince Aleksander, would-be heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, is on the run. His own people have turned on him. His title is worthless. All he has is a battletorn war machine and a loyal crew of men.

Deryn Sharp is a commoner, disguised as a boy in the British Air Service. She’s a brilliant airman. But her secret is in constant danger of being discovered.

With World War I brewing, Alek and Deryn’s paths cross in the most unexpected ways, taking them on a fantastical, around-the-world adventure that will change both their lives forever.

The final book in the trilogy, Goliath, comes out September 20, so I’ll be on tour soon. Check my Appearances page for details.

And you should totally watch the trailer for the series.

The coolest thing about this series for me has been working with illustrator Keith Thompson. We decided to make the books look like they were published back in 1914, when almost all books (even adult) were illustrated. So Keith created a sort of “Victorian manga” style, part steampunk and part old-fashioned biotech. We’re putting about 50 pieces of art in each book, most of them full page!

Behold four examples Keith’s amazing art for Leviathan:

Yep, that’s how good Keith’s illustrations are. Again, these are only four of fifty—in other words, eight percent of the total art!

You can buy interior art from Leviathan here, and color art from the series here, here, and here.
