Infernal devices

Philip Reeve

Book - 2012

"The mighty engines of Anchorage have been rusted and dead for years. The derelict city no longer roams the Ice Wastes, but has settled on the edge of the land that was once America. Tom and Hester are happy in the safety of a static settlement, but their daughter Wren is ripe for rebellion. A dangerously charming submarine pirate offers her escape - but he wants something in return. The ancient Tin Book that she steals for him ignites a conflict that will tear the whole world apart"--...Page 4 of cover.
