"Just finished this second book in the 'Mortal Engines' quartet and boy, was it fun.
You do need to have read the first book to have some idea about the characters and parts of the plot but if you have. You'll find 'Predators Gold' a very worthy second visit to the future world of Philip Reeve's imagination.
Reeve's characters continue to grow and have an amazing depth which is brilliant in a supposed 'kids' book. Full of drama, humour, scares, death, love, hope and despair, Predator's Gold ticks all the right boxes as a classic adventure story." - Google Review.
"Predator’s Gold takes the action of Mortal Engines this time to the polar Ice Wastes, where we board the once majestic, now largely deserted, fallen city of Anchorage. Reeve continues the creative flair he showed in the first book; pages abound with mercenaries, parasitic vessels and pirate lairs and diabolical scientific experiments. Once again, the world-building is nothing short of staggering, but these books are so much more than that, as it is Reeve’s ability to paint a visual picture with words along with phenomenal characterisation that really make these books so utterly compelling and so highly rewarding to read." - Goodreads Review.
