Vigyázat! Cselekményleírást tartalmaz.

Alek and Dylan are back onboard the Leviathan. The ship is ordered to pick up Tesla, a Russian inventor who has created a machine he claims can destroy half of the world, which he is using as a threat to impose peace. Alek wants to end the war, so decides to back Tesla politically, as do the Darwinists. Meanwhile Dylan is still pretending to be a boy, though Alek has figured out her true identity, and promises to keep her secret. With stops in New York, California and Mexico, Dylan and Alek encounter adventure and intrigue at every turn, but when a secret German plan to sabotage Tesla's machine leads to a heart-stopping stand-off, as Tesla threatens to fire his weapon, it's up to the two of them to stop him – or face the end of the world for real…

Scott Westerfeld: Goliath

Nem volt ez egy rossz könyv, de néhol el-eluntam magam rajta. A Behemoth hihetetlen izgalmas volt, ez nem annyira. A feltünedező történelmi alakoknak (Pulitzer, Ford, Tesla stb.) viszont nagyon megörültem.

To everyone who loves
a long-secret romance,
revealed at last



Alek sighed, adjusting his necktie in the reflection of the window glass. „You have a bad habit of listing everything that can possibly go wrong, Volger.”
„I have always considered that a good habit.”
