Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve
In a world where moving cities trawl the globe, Tom and Hester have been thrown out of theirs and left them stranded and starving in the middle of nowhere. Hester is desperate for revenge while Tom is only desperate to get back on board his beloved London.
A comment from the author's publisher and Editor Marion Lloyd
Philip Reeve's Mortal Engines series defies easy categorisation, but its brilliantly inventive fantasy world immediately grabbed the attention of readers, reviewers and literary prize-givers as soon as the first book appeared. There are now five inspiring adventure stories, in whose futuristic, post-apocalyptic setting, moving cities trawl the Earth. They attack and consume each other in wastelands where natural resources are scarce, and Ancient technology is fought for. Fast-paced, sometimes violent, always surprising and original, Reeve's epic sequence of love, war and adventure are richly rewarding for both adults and children.
"Big, brave, brilliant." Guardian
"Superbly imagined" The Times
