BBAW: Giveaway – Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld

BBAW_Celebrate_BooksBook Bloggers Appreciation Week is annual celebration to recognise the hard work and contribution of book bloggers to the promotion and preservation of a literate culture actively engaged in discussing books, authors, and a lifestyle of reading.

One of the fantastic things about the upcoming Book Bloggers Appreciation Week has to be the generous giveaways that will be on offer around the blogosphere! I couldn’t just let everyone else have all the fun, so this year I’m going to have a couple of my own!

First up is Scott Westerfeld’s new novel Leviathan! (and it’s open internationally!)

image The year is 1914 and Europe, armed with futuristic machines and biotechnology, is on the precipice of war. Prince Aleksandar is fleeing for his life, having discovered that his parents have been assassinated and that he is now a target for the Clanker Powers, a group determined to take over the globe with their mechanical machinery. They will stop at nothing to get what they want, so Alek knows his only choice is to keep on running. When he meets Deryn Sharpe, an orphan girl who has disguised herself as a boy so she can to join the British Air Service, they form an uneasy, but necessary, alliance. But the pair will soon discover that their emerging friendship will dramatically change their lives and the entire course of the Great World War…
