Publisher's Summary

The third thrilling book in the stunning Predator Cities series!

The mighty engines of Anchorage have been rusted and dead for years. The derelict city no longer roams the Ice Wastes, but has settled on the edge of the land that was once America. Tom Natsworthy and Hester Shaw are happy in the safety of a static settlement, but their daughter, Wren, is desperate for adventure. When a dangerously charming submarine pirate offers her a chance to escape, Wren doesn't think twice about leaving her home and her parents behind. But the pirate wants something in return - Wren must steal the mysterious Tin Book. To do so will ignite a conflict that could tear the whole world apart.

Horrible in the best way

I mean in terms of the story being about complex broken people. Reader beware, this is not a story about saints doing good deeds and not all the good guys get to ride into the sunset. There is a bit of plot contrivance but otherwise the story is compelling, if dark.

Slightly disappointing

Characters seem static and almost unrelatable. First in the series i was actually dissatisfied with.

Brutal, Dashing and Delightful

On a road trip from Anchorage to Louisiana with my daughter and 10 year old grandson, we needed to find something that was interesting to all of us. After seeing a movie preview for Mortal Engines we decided on this series. Wow! All I can say is after driving 10 - 12 hours a day, we still wanted to get back in the car for story time. We were enchanted with it. In Mortal Engines we loved that the little city of Anchorage was a survivor (not a spoiler) and it actually had a lot of local history. In some places, it may have been a little brutal with the combat passages, but you will survive. The characters were all wonderful and interesting. I don't know how to review and give it justice. The narrator was great, easily understood, voice changing between characters did not sound silly. You will not be disappointed with this book. You can listen with your children, grandchildren or alone and still be enchanted.

Another Mortal adventure

What did you like most about Infernal Devices?

This book picks up the story of the characters from Predators Gold fifteen years later. The story moves along at quite a pace, linking and interweaving characters from the past.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Wren is the new central character, Tom and Hester's daughter, who is whisked away in a limpet submarine to the strange, bohemian city of Brighton. Here characters new and old come together for a thrilling ending.

Which character – as performed by Barnaby Edwards – was your favourite?

Great vocalisation of all the characters, but Cynthia Twite is probably my favourite.

Great characters

Really enjoy these books. Hester's character, especially, is great and complicated. On to the next one!
