The moment we finished reading [Mortal Engines] we knew we wanted to make it into a movie." -- Producer Peter JacksonPhilip Reeve's epic city-eat-city adventure series continues with Mortal Engines Book 2: Predator's Gold.With the great Traction City of London completely destroyed, Tom Natsworthy and Hester Shaw travel across the world, trading with other airships and adventuring on the exciting and exotic routes of the Bird Roads. When their little scrapyard aircraft is pursued by rocket-firing gunships, the ice city of Anchorage offers them sanctuary. But as Tom and Hester soon discover, it is no safe refuge.
