Product description

Review

Peter Jackson posted on Facebook:
"We've had the rights to Philip's book series for several years, but have had to wait for the right time to make it.
If you haven't read the books, you should. They present a stunning look into the future, when all of Earth's major cities are now mounted on wheels, roaming across the landscape as massive "Traction Cities." Our society has build itself on the principals of Municipal Darwinism - this basically involves the bigger cities hunting down, and consuming, the smaller ones. And that's only the backdrop to an original and emotional personal story.
Philip Reeve has created a range of intriguing characters, following their adventures in our strange future world through four books - "Mortal Engines," "Predator's Gold," "Infernal Devices" and "A Darkling Plain."
The moment we read these novels, we knew what exciting movies they'd make. I literally can't wait to see them!"

Praise for the Mortal Engines series
*"Exciting and visually descriptive." -- School Library Journal, starred review
*"A page-turner, this adventure in a city-eat-city world will have readers eagerly suspending disbelief to follow the twists and turns of the imaginative plot." -- Booklist
"Big, brave, brilliant." -- Guardian (UK)
*"Reeve's [Mortal Engines Quartet] remains a landmark of visionary... imagination." -- School Library Journal, starred review
"Phenomenal... violent and romantic, action-packed and contemplative, funny and frightening." -- Sunday Times (UK)

Synopsis

Tom and Hester have been thrown together. Truly-thrown out of a city on wheels that's left them stranded and starving in the middle of nowhere while it hares off after its prey. Hester is desperate for revenge, and Tom is only desperate to get back on board his beloved London. This is a stunning literary debut from Philip Reeve. A novel that defies easy categorisation, it is a gripping adventure story set in an inspired fantasy world, where moving cities trawl the globe. Peopled with convincing and utterly likeable characters, this story is a magical and unique read.
