After the Sixty- Minute War, North America (now known as the Dead Continent) was left in ruins and Europe became the hunting ground for Traction Cities. Some would put the great cities of today to shame and others are barely holding themselves together, but they are all fair game if they should ever be spotted by cities faster than they are, and Freya Rasmussen knows it well. She is determined to guide her city, Anchorage, and its remaining wealth to the Dead Continent where it will be safe, but the vicious Huntsmen of Arkangel are after them and Anchorage shelters two strangers, Tom Natsworthy and Hester Shaw, who may or may not prove to be a blessing.
I read Mortal Engines back in eighth grade when it was up for some sort of award and, though I was very skeptical at first, I liked it. Not long after, I read Predator's Gold and Infernal Devices, but the fourth book in the series wasn't out at that point. It's been out for a while now, though, so I recently decided to reread the series.
My feelings about these books are simple: I love them, love them, love them, both for their hilarious lines and their vibrant characters.
