Thumbs up for Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld. Young adult science fiction.
I avoid series like the plague. It’s a commitment issue; there are just too many books out there I want to read. But the first of this series, Leviathan (see my review), was on my list of steampunk books, and it rocked, and the author unfairly did not end it! And I read this one, which I liked if anything even more, and he didn’t end this one either! And the third volume’s not coming out until October. ARGHH! This would be another reason why I don’t read series.
Alec raised the field glasses again, taking a moment to find the larger ship’s silhouette against the darkening horizon. He could just read the name on her side – the Goeben looked far more formidable than her companions. She had three big gun turrets and a pair of gyrothopter catapaults, and the shape of her wake revealed a set of kraken-fighting arms beneath the surface.
