A Darkling Plain


Extraordinary fiction from a brilliant author... It's six months after the tumultuous events on Brighton, and Wren Natsworthy and her father Tom have taken to the skies in their airship, the Jenny Haniver. Wren is enjoying life as an aviatrix but Tom is troubled by matters of the heart - the last, shocking, encounter with Hester, and the old wound caused by Pennyroyal's bullet. Until a fluke encounter with a familiar face sets him thinking about the ruins of London and the possibility of going back... Meanwhile the fragile truce between the Green Storm and the Traction Cities splinters and hostility breaks out again. Events are set on a collision course as things end where they began, with London... In A DARKLING PLAIN, Philip Reeve brilliantly completes the breath-taking adventures that began with MORTAL ENGINES.

Predator's Gold


Predator's Gold is the stunning sequel to the award-winning Mortal Engines and, incredibly, it is just as exciting and page-turning as its predecessor. Reeve's further stories of cities on wheels, flying over a ravaged future Earth are compelling--complete with characters that you care passionately for, action that leaves you lost for words and inventiveness that takes some beating. Two years after their escape aboard the airship (the Jenny Haniver) at the end of Mortal Engines, Tom and Hester, now lovers, find themselves the twin objects of attention of a terrorist organisation called Green Storm. In the misguided belief that the grotesquely incomplete preserved body of their hero, Anna Fang, can be resurrected to ensure their anti-traction goals, they cite Tom and Hester as essential capture targets. But when they take shelter aboard the once-magnificent city of Anchorage, after a bruising air battle with some of Green Storm's gun ships, Tom and Hester encounter a whole new set of problems. This prestigious ice city is heading disastrously towards America, the fabled Dead continent, under the guidance of the fraudulent explorer Pennyroyal. There is danger everywhere and the travellers must be careful to survive. Sequels can sometimes disappoint, but the eagerly awaited Predator's Gold cannot be faulted. Reeve's exemplary novel has the depth to satisfy the most literary and demanding readers, and yet his story delivers enough verve and white-knuckle drama to keep the lighter readers well-served too. Neither is it a slight to describe this novel as full of old-fashioned adventure--because there is something reassuringly familiar about its accessibility. It has a whiff of the classic about it and that is certainly no bad thing. (Recommended for ages 10 and over.) --John McLay--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
