The Book That Made Me: Philip Reeve 16/10/19
Predator's Gold, the sequel to Reeve's breathlessly exciting Mortal Engines is every bit as thrilling and imaginative as its predecessor. Two years on, Tom and Hester, now lovers, on board the stolen flying machine Jenny Haniver, are fugitives from a terror organisation called Green Storm. Following a wounding air battle they seek refuge in Anchorage, the infamous travelling ice-city, to make repairs. But Anchorage is headed for America - the fabled dead continent - under the guidance of a loose-tongued explorer called Nimrod Pennyroyal and the young couple are thrust into danger on all sides.
