Anything would be better than what we have, frankly.

Yes...
I was looking at this picture: http://scottwesterfeld.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/Behemoth7large1.jpg
It looks like Volger has escorted either Dylan or Alek to see the captain. It looks dramatic- look at the captains shadow. Deryn's/Alek's posture shows they are feeling uncomfortable. It could be Alek- but why would Volger turn him in, and for what reason? So it's Deryn. OH. MY. GOSH. Did Volger discover her secret? Did she tell Alek and he tattled? This is veeery interesting.

Volger is with Alek. He has a hand on his shoulder possibly to reassure him in a way of saying "its ok, Alek. I'll handle this." The captian could possibly be trying to figure out who they are. Remember, they want to get off as soon as the Leviathan lands. As for Deryn, I think that could be her on the far left heading back down to go back to work. She probably escorted them up to the bridge in the first place, then was dismissed.

My sister and I were watching Lawrence of Arabia... anyway, now Eddie Malone is reminding me of that journalist guy in the movie. XD Maybe he'll make Deryn into a famous celebrity. XD

Also, there are probably a lot of parallells with the whole movie anyway. Set in the same place and same time as Behemoth will be. Considering the bit about Alek helping Lilit and her father, too.

2 New Behemoth Pictures! http://io9.com/5638906/even-stranger-creatures-stalk-the-sequel-to-scott-westerfelds-leviathan  plus a video of Westerfeld talking to audiobook reader Alan Cumming.
Oh man this is getting exciting! Look at the detail. Keith Thompson is a God. In the first pic, down in the lower left corner you can see a guy looking quite suspicious...

And quite possibly the info you usually read at the back of the book:

"The behemoth is the fiercest creature in the British navy. It can swallow enemy battleships with one bite. The Darwinists will need it, now that they are at war with the Clanker Powers.

Deryn is a girl posing as a boy in the British Air Service, and Alek is the heir to an empire posing as a commoner. Finally together aboard the airship Leviathan, they hope to bring the war to a halt. But when disaster strikes the Leviathan's peacekeeping mission, they find themselves alone and hunted in enemy territory.

Alek and Deryn will need great skill, new allies, and brave hearts to face what's ahead"

You should've seen my friends when Deathly Hallows came out. We planned an awesome party, but ended up lying on the floor reading the whole time.

I read Deathly Hallows in like, a week or something. My whole family loves Harry Potter so I got in the first month it was out.
I need to re-read it, because I've forgotten what happens. But that makes the movie so much better xD
