What do you think about Deryn not telling Alek?

Are you kidding me? I'd never tell him. Ever.

Ah ok totally setting myself up to fall on my unsharpened noobie sword here but.

Does it really matter? I mean i read the books for the setting and the adventure involved more than the Deryn/Alek romantic tension, yes there were times i wanted to throttle Alek for not knowing. But i really don't think it would make that great a difference in the novel. let's assume that the pair get into some serious trouble (as they have done in the past two novels) Realistically Alek would be liek "Ok cool let's focus on sorta not dying we'll work it out later" Heck i'd applaud Westerfled for having Alek chuck a sexiest rage at Deryn and ending the novel on a grim note. (But I'm weird so yeah)  Or some such event.

Please don't kill me

*scraps plans for newbies imminent demise* You make a good point.  I got this book for the setting as well (i'm a steampunk fan) but the Alek/Deryn romantic tension has kept it interesting too.  For me, romance in a novel makes it more...readable i guess. And welcome, btw  :)

Yeah, that's why I got it too, but the romance is just an added bonus! I suppose that if Alek/Deryn doesn't happen, I'll be devastated of course, but I guess it wouldn't completely ruin the books...... *explodes*

Well really Leviathan is a combination of stem and genepunk with some alternative history thrown into the genepunk part.
