Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

If readers loved the first two books, Leviathan and Behemoth, they'll love the last one too. Though they won't find every loose end tied up -- like how perspicacious will the perspicacious lorises get, for starters? And that's not to mention the bigger picture of a war still going on (though, according to the afterward, this version of World War I will be over much quicker than the real one, thanks in part to Alek and Deryn).

The adventures -- mammoth ocean storms, rescues amidst giant ravenous bears -- always pop up in time to keep GOLIATH from getting too caught up in all the war plotting, identity hiding, and descriptions of complex fabricated beasts, machines, and inventions. It's a lot to juggle, and the series is richer and more memorable for it.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
