Winner of the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize 2006.
To read the full series in order then start with Mortal Engines, then Predator's Gold, Infernal Devices and end with A Darkling Plain
Darkling Plain by Philip Reeve
Completing the adventures that began with "Mortal Engines", this book features Wren Natsworthy who is enjoying life as an aviatrix. Meanwhile the fragile truce between the Green Storm and the Traction Cities splinters and hostility breaks out again. Events are set on a collision course as things end where they began, with 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.
