Interesting sequel to award-winning Leviathan....
Behemoth is much better than Leviathan, but the pace is sometimes so slow, its hard to continue reading. The highlights of the story would be the wonderfully well planned sequel, and the stunning illustrations that accompany the often times annoying voice of Scott Westerfeild. I hate to say this, but the action wasn't even close to being great, and I warn readers, re-read Leviathan to fully understand the plot and the characters. That being said, the violence is still there, and gruesome, but not gory, or gross, which I enjoyed about that part. The story is very educational, including landmarks, and important people in the textbooks. There is one girl- on- girl kiss played for laughs, which I did find a little humor in. The writing is not perfect, but still enjoyable for the most part. The violence includes spices thrown in eyes, lightning striking ships, beast hitting people and ships, kids are shot at, and the death of many animals, not described, just obviously there. The language includes slang words, dang, d***, su**, hell, and thats it. I recommend the book for fans of Leviathan, or new comers that love war- driven- books. Enjoy!
