Leviathon by Scott Westerfield

This is a world war I story that is like none other. The world of Europe has been divided into two groups...the Darwinians and the clunkers. The Darwinians have figured out how to create an entirely new type of animal-created by melding the life threads of different animals. They have created incredible hydrogen filled whales that fly through the skies...
Then there are the clunkers who have created incredible eight legged walking war machines. In the middle of this altered world are two is Alek the son of the murdered archduke. All of the German army is looking for him. Then there is Deryck, a boy? Actually a young girl pretending to be a boy in order to join the English army and work aboard the whale ship Leviathan.
