Steampunk Giveaway #1: LEVIATHAN

Let’s kick off this Steampunk Month with some GIVEAWAY AWESOMENESS–whadaya say?

And what’s more steampunky to giveaway than Scott Westerfeld’s Leviathan?

Scott Westerfeld, author of the Uglies series, is seriously amazing.  He’s on my I’m-Dying-To-Meet  List.  I mean, just read this great post from his blog (it’s a response to someone snobby knocking steampunk)–doesn’t that make you want to hug him and say, Thanks for sticking up for me.  Genre cooties should not be tolerated.

Goodreads summary:

“Prince Aleksander, would-be heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, is on the run. His own people have turned on him. His title is worthless. All he has is a battletorn war machine and a loyal crew of men.

Deryn Sharp is a commoner, disguised as a boy in the British Air Service. She’s a brilliant airman. But her secret is in constant danger of being discovered.

With World War I brewing, Alek and Deryn’s paths cross in the most unexpected way…taking them on a fantastical, around-the-world adventure that will change both their lives forever.”

Though Leviathan is labeled as young adult, it’s more middle grade (in my opinion).  Either way, it’s PACKED with steampunky goodness: giant machines, monsters, and spunky protagonists.  I mean, just LOOK at some of these illustrations!

And so, if you’re interested, please leave a comment below!

And in a few weeks–on February 25th, to be exact–I’ll use to select a winner.

P.S. I dyed my hair blue in a REBELLIOUS ACT OF STEAMPUNK (what I’m rebelling against, I don’t know).  Check it out here.
