Our final BIR2010 giveaway for today is a double prize pack from Scott Westerfeld. He and Simon Schuster have offered up these two books forour blog readers.

Behemoth (Leviathan #2)
By Scott Westerfeld
Published by Simon Pulse
September 25, 2010

The behemoth is the fiercest creature in the British navy. It can swallow enemy battleships with one bite. The Darwinists will need it, now that they are at war with the Clanker powers.
Deryn is a girl posing as a boy in the British Air Service, and Alek is the heir to an empire posing as a commoner. Finally together aboard the airship Leviathan, they hope to bring the war to a halt. But when disaster strikes the Leviathan’s peacekeeping mission, they find themselves alone and hunted in enemy territory.

Alek and Deryn will need great skill, new allies, and brave hearts to face what’s ahead.

by Scott Westerfeld

Prince Aleksander, would-be heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, is on the run. His own people have turned on him. His title is worthless. All he has is a battletorn war machine and a loyal crew of men.

Deryn Sharp is a commoner, disguised as a boy in the British Air Service. She’s a brilliant airman. But her secret is in constant danger of being discovered.

With World War I brewing, Alek and Deryn’s paths cross in the most unexpected way…taking them on a fantastical, around-the-world adventure that will change both their lives forever.

There were Q&A panels, trick or treating tables, book giveaways and games. We could only stay for a second since their red face paint marked my children for life… LOL! But, we still snuck in visits and signings with some of our very favorite people. I also spotted local authors Nichole Giles, Elana Johnson and book bloggers SueySays and Meow_mix 85 in the line to meet Scott Westerfeld. I SO hope Provo City Library is planning on doing this again next year. It was huge. See all of our photos from the event on twitter @fireicephotos
