Here is a great Goliath spoiler site created by someone who read the ARC version. http://storyscoop.blogspot.com/2011/06/goliath-by-scott-westerfeld.html I can't wait for Goliath!  :D

That review was great! I can't wait for the book, it sounds great!

From the reviews I've read, I think it'll end quite suddenly with Alek and Deryn flying off into the sunset or something (probably after saving the world from mad scientists and fabricated bears alike). We may never find our whether or they get married or both die later in the war, etc.

And yeah, that seems like a Scott-ish thing to do. ^ I was thinking we'll never find out the very ends of their lives, but it was said that you could predict what could happen... I hope that's a good thing! :D

I. Am. Freaking. Out. That review was amazing! I always read reviews before a new book, because the book summaries are always so vague!

I went to the bookstore today to check out the Behemoth paperback and read the chapter excerpt inside. I'm going to post a summary of what I remember, so if you don't want to be spoiled, don't read.

It's from Chapter three, the scene with "Hooking the Package". Newkirk is actually the one hanging on the bottom, and Deryn is the one with wings. Apparently, he's gotten ahead of her in middie training while she was in Istanbul and now she's a wee bit jealous. XD He's pretty awesome and actually saves Deryn for once. They are hooking a package which is full of... dried meat? or something. The bear is on the Trans-Siberian Trailway. XD The package is so heavy that they have to do another ballast alert, and Deryn and Newkirk are almost hit by falling debris.

The two headed eagle is mentioned and called an "imperial eagle." Hmm....

She thinks about Alek a couple of times, and Lilit once, or rather Lilit's body (kite! XD). I actually misread that part at first and was very :o.

My favorite quote:

"Barking kings!" Deryn muttered. "Even divine right couldn't change the laws of hydrogen and gravity!"

...or something like that.  :) Anyway, I didn't buy it, I only read it twice in the bookstore. I may have forgotten something.

He also said that he was excited about the new historical figure in Goliath.

This must be Nikola Tesla. He is too BEASTY to not have in the book. Tesla was, in a word, awesome.

The way everyone was talking, I was expecting it to be super spoilery, like Snape kills Dumbledore level.

Some people were asking these questions at the meet up. Let me clarify:

According to an interview, Alek is NOT getting the throne.

According to multiple reviews, the Golitath is a Tesla death ray.
Which interview?
