Pretty good, fats-paced book about Three ships, one a giant airship, the second an old tugboat sort of thing with an incredible amount of luck, the last, a giant indestructible mechanical warship that prowls the North sea looking for prey. Good read!
A pirate ship that never reaches port. A castaway on a deserted island. A steampunk-ish airship and automaton warship. A sea monster. And one adventurous boy. It all adds up to an entertaining and fast-paced story. A fun read.
