Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld

SPOILER ALERT!!! If you haven't read the first book in the trilogy, Levianthan, please don't read any further. I don't want to spoil the series for you.

Behemoth picks up the next morning where Leviathan left off. The Leviathan has left the Italian peninsula behind and is headed for the city of Istanbul. Deryn is still in disguise as a boy in the British Air Service and Prince Alek is hiding his true identity from the British crew of the Leviathan. The crew's mission is to deliver Dr. Barlow's eggs to the Sultan. Alek and Deryn have been taking care of them. The hope is to keep the Ottoman Empire from joining the Clankers in the brewing war. But what will happen when the peace keeping mission doesn't go as planned? Will Deryn and Alek be able to survive in a strange city when they are not only separated from the Leviathan but from each other? Who discovers Deryn's secret? And will Alek be able to find any allies in a city crawling with Germans?

Deryn and Alek's story will conclude with book three in the series due out Fall of 2011.
