Deryn and Alek have come a long, long way since they first met in the freezing glacier where the Leviathan crash landed. They've kept each other's secret, helped each other, and saved each other countless of times. Deryn mostly does the rescuing, but now the tables are sort of turned now with Deryn having to be rescued a couple of times by Alek. It really comes in handy having someone know her secret. I've really enjoyed seeing these two characters grow through the series, and in Goliath they have to make some serious decisions. Will Alek pursue his throne, and leave Deryn behind? Will Deryn continue as a middy on the airship Leviathan and continue risking being discovered?
This trilogy has been amazing from the very beginning. I'll never forget the beasties, especially the Leviathan, Tazza, and Bovril, the perspicacious loris. The Clanker machines were also incredible especially thanks to Keith Thompson and his breathtaking illustrations. The original vocabulary also made for a fun read. I would so use those curse words every single day, because barking spiders this has seriously been one of the best trilogies I've ever read. Goliath brought old allies and contraptions, but also new ones like Russian fighting bears, Japanesse Kappas, a Herculean, underwater fiber system, manta airships, and many more that just made me wish this series was longer! I'm extremely sad that it ended, and I hate leaving this world and these characters behind. I'll definitely come back to re-read this in the future.
I've been saying it all along, and I'll say it again... This is steampunk at its best!!!
As far as the reading (since I listened to the audiobook), that is also very well done. Alan Cumming is quite talented, and being able to hear all the various accents and languages that pop up throughout the story helps bring them to live and set the stage better than just reading the words. My only complaint is the way he reads Americans. His accent is simply ridiculous, and all the Americans, male and female, sound exactly the same. I guess it wouldn't have bothered me so much if it was just the reporter who sounded so farcical, but every American we meet had the same ludicrous accent. One small annoyance I had with an otherwise outstanding performance.
To sum up, if you haven't read this series, do so (in order, of course), and if you've read the previous two and are wondering if this book gives a satisfying ending, yes, it really does (though it also gives the sense that the story goes on, but without failing to resolve any of the major storylines).
At long last, Deryn and Alek finally get together when he gives up his claim to the throne of Austria-Hungary, and by joining a British secret service, they may well have further adventures in future novels of the series.
