Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Barnaby Edwards is fully a partner in the world-building of this exciting young adult novel…He creates diverse accents for the aviators, pirates, Anti-Traction League spies, and other characters who hail from locations around the globe. And he adopts a terrifying hiss for a Stalker, a half-man, half-machine relic of the long-ago war. As a young woman tries to avenge her parents’ deaths and London unveils a devastating new weapon, Edwards’ narration carries listeners along on the breathless adventure.” AudioFile
“In Mortal Engines, [Reeve] has given readers of all ages an alternative world so richly, vigorously, and wittily imagined that it lingers in the mind long after its supposed lessons have faded.” Washington Post
“Reeve thinks big in this British prizewinner, envisioning a distant future in which immense mobile cities roar over continent-sized wastelands, preying on each other…Readers who enjoy violent, titanic clashes between good and evil will be absorbed from beginning to end. First of a projected trilogy.” Kirkus Reviews
