I want it Wednesday


Steampunk is a genre that has caught my attention. However, there seem to be so few novels. Or, rather, I have a hard time finding them. Anyway, I came across this one in a local book store. If you have any title suggestions on YA Steampunk please send them my way.

Summary:
In an alternate 1914 Europe, fifteen-year-old Austrian Prince Alek, on the run from the Clanker Powers who are attempting to take over the globe using mechanical machinery, forms an uneasy alliance with Deryn who, disguised as a boy to join the British Air Service, is learning to fly genetically-engineered beasts.

The sequel to this novel is Behemoth. It is currently out in stores.

Just posted my review of Leviathan the other day on my blog. http://annettesbookspot.blogspot.com I would recommend Incarceron (by Catherine Fisher) as being somewhat of the same genre.
