The electrifying first novel in Philip Reeve’s electrifying series, Mortal Engines is a modern steam-punk masterpiece, blending science fiction, adventure and wonderful strangeness. Built on the genius central conceit of motorised, airborne cities pursuing each other across a post-apocalyptic wasteland, this is a dazzling work of imagination and storytelling.
The first book in the award-winning Mortal Engines quartet.
In a dangerous future, huge motorized cities hunt, attack and fight each other for survival. As London pursues a small town, young apprentice Tom is flung out into the wastelands, where a terrifying cyborg begins to hunt him down.
Mortal Engines launched Philip Reeve's brilliantly-imagined creation, the world of the Traction Era, where mobile cities fight for survival in a post-apocalyptic future. Now, in time for the film debut, the critically acclaimed Mortal Engines quartet is repackaged with a fantastic and eye-catching cover featuring new artwork.
