Thoughts:  
After finishing up the trilogy at the beginning of the year I was looking forward to reading this little companion book to the series.

I found the illustrations to be really insightful and I loved how they were in colour so we could get an extra glimpse into the whole story.

There’s not a lot else to say about this book so I’m just going to say, it was an awesome read and I thought it was a neat little companion to the Leviathan trilogy.
