On June 28, 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and his wife Sophie are assassinated. Their deaths become the igniting of the first World War. This brief moment has invited speculation about what could have happened if the assassination did not succeed. One such imaginative example is Scott Westerfeld’s Leviathan. Westerfeld does not stop at an alternative history. He gives readers a steampunk world with airships and steam-powered technology as the setting of Europe-spanding adventure.
