Welcome to the astounding world of Mortal Engines!

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 .


  • Amazing!

    I am only just finished part one, but the book is amazing! I couldn’t put it down! Before you read it, now that it’s about a futuristic steampunk world where cities run on tracks and eat other cities for resources. There’s a common theme about how people are not who the seem to be! It does got kind of sad at some points, but overall, it’s so far great!
  • Wow

  • Amazing Book

    By Andrew K.2002
    I’m not really into reading but I wanted to see this movie so I decided I should read the book. I literally couldn’t put it down. Even at school I would find myself reading during free times. I would 1000% recommend this book to anyone.
  • Inspiring and a great read

    By Vollie Fireman2011
    A “Hell on wheels” complete with swashbuckling adventure and danger at the turn of the pages. With high flying showdowns between airships to the lumbering high octane traction cities. Mortal Engines keeps you coming back for more. If you love fantasy, syfy or just love a good futuristic read you have found it with the literary adventure that is Mortal Engines!!!
  • Awesome

    By Bobonian
    This is one of the few book series that has totally engrossed me. This is such an original series, an I can’t tell you how much I suggest you to read it. I am also excited for the movie that will come out in December of 2018 although, I hope they don’t ruin it.
  • Liked it a lot

    Different take on a post apocalyptic story. Starting book 2 now.
  • Mortal Engines According to the Capybara

    By Jon Lecory
    An imaginative build of a new concept far in the future. This book captures the reason our social conformity may lead to disaster, and employs the power of perspective as a plot device. - NML
