The second book in the "Leviathan" trilogy is "Behemoth". At the start, Alec the Austrian prince, his men, and the crew of the Leviathan along with Dr. Barlow continued their mission in the Ottoman Empire where they discovered it littered with Germans. The Germans have convinced the sultan to block Russian supply ships that were there to deliver food to the Russian fighting bears. As Alec escapes the captivity in the Leviathan, he finds that it's his duty as a young prince to try help end the war.
I enjoyed reading Behemoth, by Scott Westerfeld. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes history, is a fan of steampunk, or simply enjoys good and long fiction books. I really liked how the characters and other things were presented. Throughout the book there were many conflicts the solutions to which were not always clear but in the end were quite creative. I also liked the illustrations as they helped visualize the setting in the eyes of the author.
