Evie In the afterword of Leviathan, Scott Westerfeld describes it as “alternate history”. Basically, this means that there are elements which are fictional and elements which are true. It is set it the summer of 1914 and it includes historical elements such as the assassination of Franz Ferdinand and his wife and the spread of World War One. The darwinists and clankers are made up, but Charles Darwin really did exist.
