Leviathan in Paperback, NOW!

As of yesterday, Leviathan is out in paperback and in stores everywhere. As I’ve been tweeting, the illustrations are all the same as in the hardback and the paper almost as lovely, though the map is tragically black and white. But for only $9.99 (US) that’s pretty good!

Now because you have all been waiting so long for Behemoth (out October 5) here is the second ART TEASER! That’s right, a genuine piece of art from Chapter 7 of Behemoth.

Behemoth7largeImage by Keith Thompson, of course.

Behold the beautiousness that is the bridge of the Leviathan. Then make sure to click the image to make it bigger! Seriously! The gnarly details are many.

And in case you missed it, click here to check out the first teaser.

Anyway, hope you like it. (How could you not?) And in case you forgot, the Leviathan paperback looks like this:


And just to be extra crass, here’s a BUY button!

Order this book!

  1. Are the images on the covers of Leviathan and Behemoth Keith Thompson drawings? They look like photos taken of models that were made to look vaguely hand-drawn in Photo Shop. If that’s true, why on earth wouldn’t they put Keith Thompson art on the cover?

  2. i don’t think it’s Keith’s art. The faces he draws look a little more angular to me, and there is less gradual shading.I think the reason they don’t use Keith’s art on the cover because it is black and white, and color is better at catching your eye. I know that on some books the cover is a painting. Maybe part of the leviathan cover is a painting, and then the rest was added with a computer. Or I could be totally wrong (:

  3. Haha I like the bird!

    @ Stephanie:

    I think a cover needs to be a little simpler. You snatch someone’s attention with something simple and eye-cathching, then you draw them in with the awesome details… That’s how a book works… if it’s successful. They start with something you can grasp, start building up so many details that you can’t stop in the middle, then blow you away with some sort of awesome conclusion! Well, at least Scott does that pretty well. So, yeah, similar deal with covers. If it’s too detailed right off the bat, we skip over it and miss EVERYTHING…

  4. I’m agreeing with Claire-wa!!! I totally love all the fan art and stuff, but I’m a *huge* Uglies fan.
    We *NEED* movie updates!!!
    Please, Scott-la?

  5. I cannot wait for Behemoth to come out. The artwork is so detailed. Keith Thompson did such a great job. No surprise there. Here I am sitting at my computer wondering, what is going on in this scene? The suspense is hurting me! And I really like the paperback Leviathan cover.

  6. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Oh! It’s a salamander! I was trying to figure out what that thing in the cone next to the bird was!

  8. And there are lizard or amphibian things on the ground, too… I keep noticing more and more details!

  9. Soooo many details, it’s amazing! I wonder what’s going on the scene, ahhh I can’t wait for the book to come out. Also did anyone else notice that Alek (I assume that’s Alek at least) is slouching, for some reason I’m thinking that’s a character change….AH my English teacher is rubbing off on me!

    But ya, AMAZING art.

  10. That supercalafraga-AWESOME! The art is really cool.

    To Amy: Yea, I think it is Alek… hmm… wonder what that could mean…

    Anyway… that’s great art! October 5th needs to come faster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. i will NEVER get over that amazing artwork. 🙂 it’s BEAUTIIful.
    And i saw leviathan in paper back yesterday! it was surprisingly really heavy- but just as awesome.
    this is my cue to re-read leviathan to be ultra ready for behemoth!

  12. Oooooooooooh!!! O.O So awesome it’s Alek and the Wildcount. Is that the captain? Can’t wait for Behemoth to come!! 😎

  13. Congratulations on Leviathan in paperback, can’t wait for Behemoth. Don’t forget about the Independent Bookstores out there that are selling and promoting your book as well.

  14. WANT TO BUY PAPERBACK! i wish i could have boughten it before but sadly my parents have stopped buying me books, so i must wait for the paperbacks 🙁

    I can’t wait for Behemoth! i wish i knew what was going on! sadly i’m on a long waiting list at the library, but i may just buy it, despite my small book buying fund…

    keep the art coming!

  15. YES! I’m totally not allowed to get hard-back books, so I immediately snatched up Lev in paperback when I noticed it in the bookstore yesterday. I was so transfixed by just having it that I stared at the cover the whole way home and didn’t notice that I was drooling a bit. My mother insists that I was also made a very high-pitched squealy noise every few minutes, though I have no recollection of that……sort of. Can’t wait to get started!!!!

  16. @ Amy

    Yeah, I thought I noticed a slouch, too, but I think it has more to do with mood. As Keith was saying in the interview, a lot of these shots are farther away, like they used to be, unlike what we are used to now. Now, we are used to looking at minute details on a character’s face, but in a picture like this, you need to use a character’s entire body language to portray emotion. Sort of like the difference between modern day movies and theater.
    I’m not so sure it’s Alek, though… But I don’t know, really. The weird thing is the other people seem to be in a good mood. Hmmm… Been making me curious.

  17. (S)he could just be tired? Just accomplished some amazing feat? Dunno, guess we’ll find out.

  18. I both love and hate these teasers! I love them because: It gets me wondering about what’s going to happen in the book and how it corresponds to chapter seven.
    I hate them because: It gets me wondering about what’s going to happen in the book and how it corresponds to chapter seven. I’m extremely excited about Behmoth! Can’t wait till October!!!

  19. i think it’s Alek and Volger on the left, and the captain on the right. alek looks like he’s in trouble with the captain, and he’s slouching because he knows he did something wrong. Volger is sticking up for him against the Captian, but only because he doesn’t want anyone but himself yelling at alek. either that or that’s volger turning in Deryn to the captain for something or other. cant tell for sure, but it’s probably alek. Deryn always stand up very strait when being addressed by the captain.

  20. I think I like the hardcover jacket cover art a lot better than the paperback cover art. The paperback version clashes a little with Keith Thompson’s art.
