Predator’s Gold by Philip Reeve

The Jenny was drifting across the shoulder of a big volcano.  Beyond it there were no more mountains, just an endless blue-white plain stretching to the horizon.  They were at the mercy of the wind, and it was carrying them helplessly into the Ice Wastes.

After two years of carefree travelling in the Jenny Haniver, Tom and Hester find themselves back in danger.  Fleeing from the grim aviators of the Green Storm, they stumble onto the ice city of Anchorage just in time.  But Anchorage is not a safe refuge: devastated by plague, and haunted by thieves – or perhaps ghosts – the city is barely lurching along.  The savage Huntsmen of Arkangel are closing in, and the young margravine must make a last desperate bid for survival.  She sets a course for the Dead Continent: America…

In this breathtaking sequel to the award-winning Mortal Engines, Philip Reeve plunges us into a ruthless and terrifyingly believable world where cities eat each other, betrayal is as common as the blasted land the cities traverse, and loyalty holds the only chance of survival.

Peer & Press Reviews

Praise for the Mortal Engines series:

Phenomenal… violent and romantic, action-packed and contemplative, funny and frightening.

Sunday Times

Reeve’s [Mortal Engines Quartet] remains a landmark of visionary imagination.

School Library Journal (starred review)

With this quartet, Reeve has created an extraordinary imaginative achievement.  Read it.  You won’t be disappointed.

Overall condition

Near fine / Fine

The book has yellow-to-tan discolouration (fading) to page edges, which is in keeping with its age, and some pushing to its spine ends.

While this book has its flaws, we don’t think you’re likely to find a copy in much better condition, particularly when bought as part of a four-book ME set.

Even so, if you are unhappy with the book, return it to us in the condition you received it (along with the other three books in the Quartet) for a full refund.
