Welcome to the astounding world of Mortal Engines! London is hunting again. Emerging from its hiding place in the hills, the great Traction City is chasing a terrified little town across the wastelands. Soon, London will feed.

They must run for their lives through the wreckage--and face a terrifying new weapon that threatens the future of the world.
