Not quite as interesting as the rst. However, enough interesting characters and conflicts to keep your attention until the conclusion. ( )

I really enjoyed this entire series. Goliath was a very fitting end to the adventures of Deryn Sharp and His Serene Highness. Highly recommend this series for adults and children. The most unusual/cool thing is that at the end of each book in the series the author states what he changed about the actual history, and why (was it to make story more exciting, etc.) and he talks a bit about the actual history. I learned quite a bit and so did my daughter. Really a worthwhile read. ( )

A satisfying conclusion to an entertaining trilogy. I loved the inclusion of Nikola Tesla, and other real-life personalities. Alan Cumming's narration was fantastic again, though his voice for Tesla sounded like he was constipated a bit. I recommend this whole series, either in print (there are pictures) or on audio (great narrator). ( )

This was a nice, well-rounded way to end the series, but I speant about half the book being frustrated by Alek's stubborn misogyny.

After three books, it just seemed silly that he remained so stuck in his ways. ( )

Zu guter Letzt hab ich mich dann doch ganz schön durch diese Trilogie gequält. Im dritten Teil gab es für meinen Geschmack etwas sehr viele zum Teil neue handelnde Charaktere. Und die Geschichte ist irgendwie zum Schluss ausgelaufen und konnte den Steampunk-Charme, der ihr manchmal so gut gelungen ist, nicht durchhalten. Stattdessen wurde immer wieder auf den selben Motiven rumgeritten. Außerdem wurde mit der "Enthüllung" des "wahren" Geschlechts der einen Hauptfigur sehr schmerzvoll und unhinterfragt klischeebeladen umgegangen. Dafür war das unvermeidliche heterosexuelle Romantik-Happy-End halbwegs ok. ( )

To everyone who loves a long-secret romance, revealed at last.

"Siberia," Alek said. The word slipped cold and hard from his tongue, as forbidding as the landscape passing below.
