A Darkling Plain book. Proceed with caution. Dear Philip Reeve: I really enjoy the books in your Hungry City Chronicles.

A Darkling Plain book. They are fine stories with creative and compelling plots, often amusing dialog and interesting characters. You are, however, starting to piss me off.

He has been writing since he was five, but mortal engines, the first book in the Hungry City Chronicles, was his first published novel.

The fourth book in The Hungry City Chronicles, which began with Mortal Engines (2003), is a rousing wrap-up for the series. The Green Storm forces are struggling to establish new static settlements and reclaim farmland, but the voracious and now unified Traction Cities are determined to pursue Municipal Darwinism, with cities hunting towns and towns hunting villages. Meanwhile, the Stalker Fang, thought dead, but actually resurrected, has her own macabre plans to cleanse Earth of human beings.

THEO HAD BEEN CLIMBING since dawn; first on the steep roads and paths and sheep tracks behind the city, then across slopes of shifting scree, and up at last onto the bare mountainside, keeping where he could to corries and crevices where the blue shadows pooled. The sun was high overhead by the time he reached the summit. He paused there awhile to drink water and catch his breath. Around him the mountains quivered behind veils of heat haze rising from the warm rocks.

Josh Lacey cheers Philip Reeve's A Darkling Plain - the closing chapter of a. .People live in movable cities that roam the planet, attacking and looting smaller, weaker cities.

Josh Lacey cheers Philip Reeve's A Darkling Plain - the closing chapter of a cracking quartet. Please, I thought as I opened the first page of A Darkling Plain, please don't be a disappointment. Picking up the fourth and final book in a quartet is a nerve-racking experience. The story opens with a naive teenage boy, Tom Natsworthy, rushing through London, heading for an observation platform, hoping to watch his own city gorge a small town and strip its assets.

This fourth fan painting, not commisioned by Mr. Reeve or his publishers, is actually the second of two done for the 4th book, and the only instance in which I created 2 completed pieces for one incredible novel in the Mortal Engines Quartet.

Hungry City Chronicles. Original cover designs for the Mortal Engines Quartet. Australia Though not mentioned in the original series or Fever Crumb, Philip Reeve says that he will explore places like Australia and Nuevo Maya in the future, as he never had a chance to do so in the original quartet. d - The static and stable version of the Traction City of Anchorage that had decided to stop wandering the Arctic wastes and settle in the green and unspoilt land of Vineland (. the Dead Continent), what was left of the continent of North America after the Sixty Minute War.

The once-great traction city of London is now just a radioactive wreck, a ruin haunted by electrical discharges and the dashed hopes of the people who once called it home—people like Tom Natsworthy. Twenty years after he fled, intending never to return, he discovers that something stirs in the remains of the old city.

Tom and his daughter, Wren, aren't the only people interested in London. The desperate armies of the Traction Cities and the Green Storm are also closing in, certain that whatever is taking shape within the city holds the key to victory in their never-ending war.

But it may be too late. Even as Tom and Wren hurry to uncover the mystery of London, Hester Shaw—estranged from her husband and her daughter—tracks the resurrected Stalker Fang, who has found another way to end the war and all life on the planet once and for all.

I loved the ending, the way that the author keeps you in the dark about how things are going to work out to the very, very end, and how all the characters are true to the author's character development throughout the books. This story capped a wonderful series full of original ideas and imagination.
  • Malaris
It’s rare to find good writing and a great imagination in today’s massive self publishing world, but this series of four books, meets and exceeds the reader’s expectations.
  • Beranyle
The big picture, the real comparison between this truly imaginative world and our changing environment. Great story-telling, memorable characters, humor and pathos all rolled together. Just hope the movie stays true to the books.
  • Inerrace
Read all four books. Best series yet. Highly recommend. Getting ready to download the prequel. Good books for zoning out.
  • Zololmaran
This was the perfect way to end the trilogy. I couldn't have been happier with the resolution. Every bit as good as the first two books.
  • Atineda
I bought books 1-4 for my daughter for her birthday. The books arrived in a timely manner with no damage.
  • Talvinl
The story on the series is absolutely amazing and kept me wanting more. The problem is the writing is only ok, hopefully the author improves as his imagination is first rate
Well, considering that it was the last book in the series, it did well. I was bit shocked by the ending, where the two main characters die, but other than that, it was great.
