The second book in the award-winning Mortal Engines quartet. Far above Anchorage, a tiny aircraft falls from the sky. Having fled from London in Mortal Engines, Tom and Hester seek refuge in a city devastated by plague, haunted by ghosts, and filled with deadly secrets... 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. Mortal Engines won the coveted Gold Smarties Award. Now a feature film of the same name, starring Hera Hilmar, Robert Sheehan and Hugo Weaving. Produced by Lord of the Rings director, Peter Jackson.
