The epic city-eat-city adventure is now a major motion picture produced by Peter Jackson!"A breathtaking work of imagination, Hester Shaw is a heroine for the ages.

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.In the attack, Tom Natsworthy is flung from the speeding city with a murderous scar-faced girl.
