LEVIATHAN series, by Scott Westerfeld

I have to say two things about these books:  they happen in an extremely weird alternative past, and they areall really great stories!  Imagine that Charles Darwin had discovered DNA, and used it to develop animals who were also fighting machines.  Imagine the walkers you saw in Star Wars being used in World War I.  If you can imagine those things, you can imagine Scott Westerfeld’s alternative world in Leviathan.  This is a great action and adventure story with a British girl disguised as a boy, and an Austrian prince trying to escape the enemies who want to kill him.  How do both these kids end up on the great living airship Leviathan?  How can they help each other – and maybe even end the war?  Find out when you read Leviathan and Behemoth, and Goliath.
