This is a weekly feature that I will be posting on a Tuesday, where I will be spotlighting a book that I have on my shelves that I haven't read. This is a great idea for a weekly post, as I have loads of unread books, and i find it really interesting to read why others have purchased and want to read certain books!! This is hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies.
This Week's Book:
Author: Scott Westerfeld
Synopsis: 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.
How/When I Got It:
I bought this book in a set with the second book Behemoth a good few years ago now, probably 2012!!
Why I Want To Read It:
I have to confess I have never actually read anything by Westerfeld, but I've seen many people rave about him, so I want to pick some of his work up. Also the synopsis sounds really good!
