Product Description

The Scriven people are brilliant, mad – and dead. All except one. Yet their final insane creation is nearly complete: a mammoth city on wheels. In the future land once known as Britain, nomad tribes are massing to fight this terrifying new threat – the first-ever mobile city. But before London can be launched, young engineer Fever Crumb must journey to the wastelands of the North, seeking the ancient birthplace of the Scriven mutants. There, she finds a mysterious black pyramid. The extraordinary secrets it contains will change her world forever. They will also plunge her into the horrifying heart of the great war which is about to change the future of the human race…

This seventh awe-inspiring adventure in the Mortal Engines series is the work of a superb writer at the height of his powers.

Philip Reeve

Philip Reeve was born and raised in Brighton, where he worked in a bookshop for years while also producing and directing a number of no-budget theatre projects.

Philip then began illustrating and has since provided cartoons and jokes for around forty books, including the best-selling Scholastic series Horrible Histories, as well as Murderous Maths and Dead Famous.

He’s been writing stories since he was five, but Mortal Engines was the first to be published. Mortal Engines defies easy categorisation. It is a gripping adventure story set in an inspired fantasy world, where moving cities trawl the globe. A magical and unique read, it immediately caught the attention of readers and reviewers and won several major awards. Three more Hungry Cities novels followed, and Philip’s latest project are the Fever Crumb books, prequels set centuries before the events of Mortal Engines.

Philip has also written Buster Bayliss, a series for younger readers, and stand alone novels including Here Lies Arthur, which won the Carnegie Medal.

Philip lives in Devon with his wife and son and his interests are walking, drawing, writing and reading.
