Philip Reeve Books Overview

Mortal Engines

It was a dark, blustery afternoon in spring, and the city of London was chasing a small mining town across the dried out bed of the old North Sea…
The great traction city london is on the move again. It has been lying low, skulking in the hills to avoid the bigger, faster, hungrier cities loose in the Great Hunting Ground. But now, as its great mountain of metal lumbers along in hot pursuit of its quarry, the sinister plans it has harbored for years can finally start to unfold behind its soaring walls…
Thaddeus Valentine, London’s Head Historian and most famous archaeologist, and his daughter, Katherine, are down in The Gut when the young assassin with the black scarf strikes. Only the quick intervention of Tom, a lowly third class apprentice, prevents Valentine from being stabbed in the heart. Madly racing after the fleeing girl, Tom suddenly glimpses her hideous face: scarred from forehead to jaw, nose a smashed stump, a single eye glaring back at him. ‘Look at what your Valentine did to me!’ she screams. ‘Ask him! Ask him what he did to Hester Shaw!’ And with that she jumps down the waste chute to her death. Minutes later Tom finds himself tumbling down the same chute and stranded in the Out Country, a sea of mud scored by the huge caterpillar tracks of cities like the one now steaming off over the horizon. In a stunning literary debut, Philip Reeve has created an unforgettable adventure story set in a dark and utterly original world fueled by Municipal Darwinism and betrayal.

Predator’s Gold

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 traveling 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.

Infernal Devices

Nearly twenty years after the city of Anchorage settled down on the shores of the Dead Continent of America, Tom and Hester are leading quiet, peaceful lives. Their wild adventures happened so long ago that they seem like little more than stories told to children children such as their own daughter, Wren, who is so exquisitely bored that she’d welcome any sort of excitement…
. So when a trio of Lost Boys asks her to steal the mysterious and deadly Tin Book of Anchorage, Wren is only too happy to help. But the theft goes wrong, and the Lost Boys steal Wren, too, leaving Tom and Hester no choice: They must abandon their peaceful life and rescue their daughter. Their search will reunite them with enemies they thought they’d left behind forever, will ask of them sacrifices that no parent can make, and will cost one of them everything that matters most.

A Darkling Plain

The once great traction city of London is now just a radioactive wreck, a ruin haunted by electrical discharges and the dashed hopes of the people who once called it home people like Tom Natsworthy. Twenty years after he fled, intending never to return, he discovers that something stirs in the remains of the old city. Tom and his daughter, Wren, aren’t the only people interested in London. The desperate armies of the Traction Cities and the Green Storm are also closing in, certain that whatever is taking shape within the city holds the key to victory in their never ending war. But it may be too late. Even as Tom and Wren hurry to uncover the mystery of London, Hester Shaw estranged from her husband and her daughter tracks the resurrected Stalker Fang, who has found another way to end the war and all life on the planet once and for all.

Night of the Living Veg

It’s bad enough that Buster’s mum has dumped him on her best friend for the week but it’s just plain inconsiderate to make him save the entire town from invasion by a breed of alien super cabbage as well. Especially when he’s already suffering torture by flowery guest bedroom. But he’s going to have to do something to rescue Fake Auntie Pauline even though anyone who attempts to feed him leek and tuna fish bake deserves to get eaten by a sprout monster…

The Big Freeze

Buster is not happy. Somebody, or something, is spoiling a perfectly good summer holiday by invading Smogley again!. Don’t they know that Buster has better things to do? He has a full schedule of not-going-to-school, biscuit-eating and Busterball. He doesn’t have time to save the world from rampaging ice-freaks – really, they could have asked. This is the second in the hilarious series from ‘Mortal Engines’ author, Philip Reeve.

Day of the Hamster

Buster longs for a quiet life, but weird stuff just keeps happening in Smogley…
HEEELLLP! There’s a giant, crazy hamster – and it’s coming straight for Buster. Hamsters are small, cute and cuddly, except when you feed them weird brown gloopy stuff and they’re cute, cuddly and the size of a house. Buster Bayliss is in really big trouble this time…
This is the third in the hilarious series from Philip Reeve.

Fever Crumb

Fever Crumb is a girl who has been adopted and raised by Dr. Crumb, a member of the order of Engineers, where she serves as apprentice. In a time and place where women are not seen as reasonable creatures, Fever is an anomaly, the only female to serve in the order. Soon though, she must say goodbye to Dr. Crumb nearly the only person she’s ever known to assist archeologist Kit Solent on a top secret project. As her work begins, Fever is plagued by memories that are not her own and Kit seems to have a particular interest in finding out what they are. Fever has also been cont’d singled out by city dwellers who declare her part Scriven. The Scriveners, not human, ruled the city some years ago but were hunted down and killed in a victorious uprising by the people. If there are any remaining Scriven, they are to be eliminated. All Fever knows is what she’s been told: that she is an orphan. Is Fever a Scriven? Whose memories does she hold? Is the mystery of Fever, adopted daughter of Dr. Crumb, the key to the secret that lies at the heart of London? Haunting, arresting, and astonishingly original, Fever Crumb will delight and surprise readers at every fast paced, breathless turn. Philip Reeve is the bestselling author of the Mortal Engines quartet and the highly acclaimed Here Lies Arthur. He lives in Dartmoor, England with his wife and son.

A Web of Air

Two years ago, Fever Crumb escaped the war torn city of London in a travelling theatre. Now she arrives in the extraordinary crater city of Mayda, where buildings ascend the cliffs on funicular rails, and a mysterious recluse is building a machine that can fly. Fever is the engineer he needs but ruthless enemies will kill to possess their secrets. This is the fabulous sixth book in the ‘Mortal Engines’ series, from the brilliant and award winning Philip Reeve.


Arthur Art Mumby and his irritating sister Myrtle live with their father, Revd Marmaduke Mumby, in the huge and rambling house, Larklight, travelling through space on a remote orbit far beyond the moon. One ordinary sort of morning they receive a correspondence informing them that a gentleman is on his way to visit, a Mr Webster. Visitors to Larklight are rare if not unique, and a frenzy of preparation ensues. But it is the wrong sort of preparation, as they discover when their guest arrives, and a Dreadful and Terrifying and marvellous adventure begins. It takes them to the furthest reaches of known space, where they must battle the evil First Ones in a desperate attempt to save each other and the universe. Recounted through the eyes of Art himself, ‘Larklight‘ will be sumptuously designed and illustrated throughout.

Sure enough, Art and family quickly find themselves face to face with French spies, Yankee rebels and man eating starfish, not to mention an awful lot of sinister top hats. As they travel to the future and back to prehistoric Mars, it s all Art can do to keep his head about him. Which is all the more important considering everyone else is losing theirs.
