Publisher Description

"A breathtaking work of imagination, Hester Shaw is a heroine for the ages. The moment we finished reading this book we knew we wanted to make it into a movie." -- Producer Peter Jackson

* "Reeve's [Mortal Engines] remains a landmark of visionary imagination." -- School Library Journal, starred review

窶銀�窶起ow a major motion picture produced by Peter Jackson!

London is hunting again. Emerging from its hiding place in the hills, the great Traction City is chasing a terrified little town across the wastelands. Soon London will feed.

In the attack, Tom Natsworthy is flung from the speeding city with a murderous scar-faced girl. They must run for their lives through the wreckage -- and face a terrifying new weapon that threatens the future of the world.

Beloved storyteller Philip Reeve creates a brilliant new world in the Mortal Engines series, called "phenomenal... violent and romantic, action-packed and contemplative, funny and frightening" by the Sunday Times.

Viva Knievel ,

Steampunk unlike any other

A little Gaiman. A little Gilliam. Lightly sketched but relatable characters. There are many pleasures here.

Movie’s Better

I think this is one of the few instances where the plot for the movie was actually far, far better than the book.

PODCAST REVIEWS :) <3 ,

Amazing!

I am only just finished part one, but the book is amazing! I couldn’t put it down! Before you read it, now that it’s about a futuristic steampunk world where cities run on tracks and eat other cities for resources. There’s a common theme about how people are not who the seem to be! It does got kind of sad at some points, but overall, it’s so far great!
