Synopsis

Welcome to the astounding world of Mortal Engines! 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 .

    The Mortal Engines series was my first introduction into the world of dystopia / post-apocolyptic books. While these books certainly draw on your imagination to picture large moving cities, I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline and characters. The world has changed since the 60 minute war and power is gained through Municipal Darwinism. While the traction cities battle it out for dominance and resources there a changes coming from the static settlements (anti-tractionists) that value the old world. Reeve introduces new ideas and old world technology to create a society that is constantly on the edge. I was drawn into most of the characters lives, but for a few characters you are left wanting to know more about them and how they came to be. While many stories these days falter for a finish, Reeve did a great job in closing off the series.
