5.0 out of 5 stars I love this series, 5 Jan 2009
This review is from: Predator's Gold (Mortal Engines Quartet) (Paperback)
I read the first book in this series to my daughter a few years ago, and we both enjoyed it. She went on to read the rest of the series on her own, but last year I read the first one to my son, who is 11. I loved it again, and my son did too, and asked me to read the rest of the series to him - much to my delight. We loved Predator's gold - it was different enough from Mortal Engines to still be fresh, while very much in the same wonderful style. We're now on book three and it just gets better and better. The books are particularly good for reading aloud because the language is so beautiful and lyrical, and yet the plots are pacey and exciting enough to keep the kids (and me) gripped. I can only aspire to one day writing as well as Philip Reeve.
