If you had the power to end a war that was ravaging this planet, what would you do, and at what price? That is the ultimate question in this story in which Alek joins forces with the eccentric Nikola Tesla to finance a weapon known as Goliath. Nikola believes this weapon can destroy cities with one blast. This weapon, and its seemingly mad creator ultimately hurl Alek onto his final act in this war, and final decision. Things are no easier for Deryn. For Alek has also discovered his secret, He is a she. This is a chilling story about whether what is easy and what is morally wrong can be totally  different and exactly the same. This is a fitting final installment in this series.
