Mortal Engine withdrawals....,
This review is from: The Teacher's Tales of Terror / Traction City: A World Book Day Flip Book (Paperback)
I don't post reviews on Amazon to be honest but I feel the need to because there are a series of Sci-fi books that need a wider audience and more recognition (not that they havn't won awards anyway). This book is a short story written for World Book Day 2011 and set 20 years before Mortal Engines. I must say it was great to read a new story set in the time of the original books.
This is a good but brief (well it is a £!) introduction to the World of Mortal Engines (WoME) but as someone very familiar with that world it was still interesting, for me, and good to see a side to London I hadn't really seen before. it also acted as a slight tease for Scrivener's Moon and beyond possibly I thought. A pleasure to read all round! If you liked this then read Mortal Engines and its 3 sequels. The 3rd prequel Scrivener's Moon is out this year.
This a double book and the other story The Teacher's Tales of Terror was fun too!
