Waiting On Wednesday (1)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Breaking The Spine to showcase the novels and books we have been waiting for.
Goliath (Leviathan)Release Date:  September 20, 2011
Alek and Deryn are on the last leg of their round-the-world quest to end World War I, reclaim Alek’s throne as prince of Austria, and finally fall in love. The first two objectives are complicated by the fact that their ship, the Leviathan, continues to detour farther away from the heart of the war (and crown). And the love thing would be a lot easier if Alek knew Deryn was a girl. (She has to pose as a boy in order to serve in the British Air Service.) And if they weren’t technically enemies. The tension thickens as the Leviathan steams toward New York City with a homicidal lunatic on board: secrets suddenly unravel, characters reappear, and nothing is at it seems in this thunderous conclusion to Scott Westerfeld’s brilliant trilogy.

Why I'm waiting:
I read and loved the first two books in the series, LEVIATHAN and BEHEMOTH.  They have excellent writing, cool plots, plus I learn things in them-they are period novels, no matter how AU they are.  I've been waiting since I first finished BEHEMOTH, which was almost a year ago.  And now, it is less than a month until the release date!  (An added bonus:  The cover is amazing.)
