In the fourth and final brilliant installment of Philip Reeve’s

award-winning quartet, after twenty years, the devastating world

war between the predatory Traction Cities and their enemies is


Wren and her father Tom Natsworthy travel the Bird

Roads in their airship, trying to forget Hester’s betrayal. But

in the ruined wreckage of the city of London they make a discovery

that changes everything. And Hester faces an implacable foe with

the means and the will to destroy the entire human race.

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.
