Summary: The Manual of Aeronautics is an illustrated guide to the inner workings of the Darwinist and Clanker powers. Loaded with detailed descriptions and elaborate, four-color illustrations of Darwinist beasties and Clanker walkers, weapons, transport, and uniforms, this manual highlights the international powers that Deryn and Alek encounter throughout their around-the-world adventures. This guide draws back the curtain and reveals the inner depths of Westerfeld’s fascinating alternative world. (Taken from Goodreads)
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.
