???Now a major motion picture produced by Peter Jackson!

London is hunting again. Emerging from its hiding place in the hills, the great Traction City is chasing a terrified little town across the wastelands. Soon London will feed.

In the attack, Tom Natsworthy is flung from the speeding city with a murderous scar-faced girl. They must run for their lives through the wreckage -- and face a terrifying new weapon that threatens the future of the world.

Beloved storyteller Philip Reeve creates a brilliant new world in the Mortal Engines series, called "phenomenal... violent and romantic, action-packed and contemplative, funny and frightening" by the Sunday Times.

Praise For Mortal Engines: Movie Tie-in Edition

Praise for the Mortal Engines series:

"Philip Reeve has created a range of intriguing characters, following their adventures in our strange future world. [The series] presents a stunning look into the future, when all of Earth's major cities are now mounted on wheels, roaming across the landscape as massive Traction Cities. Our society has built itself on the principals of Municipal Darwinism - this basically involves the bigger cities hunting down, and consuming, the smaller ones. And that's only the backdrop to an original and emotional personal story. If you haven't read the books, you should." -- Peter Jackson, on Facebook
