Leviathan is an interesting view on how the world could have ended up. There are the Darwinists, who love all things biotic and genetically modify creatures to suit their war needs, and the Clankers, who use machinery (steampunk style) for their war needs. Alek finds himself on the Clanker side, born into a wealthy family, but everything goes wrong, and he is being chased. His parents have been assassinated, and Alek is on the journey of his life, for his life. His journey takes him to a Darwinist ship where he meets someone who will change his life. Leviathan is a must read book full of thrills and suspense.
