Crimeny, why do I do this to myself? The second volume of a Scott Westerfeld trilogy comes out and I read it right away and now I'm going to have to wait a year or whatever to find out how these rollicking adventures conclude. Dangit. Anyway, Behemoth, steampunk and, I dunno, bioengineering-punk, alternate pre-WWI, a girl dressing as a boy to join the Royal Air Navy, a young Duke on the run, mecha fights, etc. A year?
