Scrivener's Moon

The Scriven people are brilliant, mad – and dead. All except one. Yet their final insane creation is nearly complete: a mammoth city on wheels. In the future land once known as Britain, nomad tribes are massing to fight this terrifying new threat – the first-ever mobile city. But before London can be launched, young engineer Fever Crumb must journey to the wastelands of the North, seeking the ancient birthplace of the Scriven mutants. There, she finds a mysterious black pyramid. The extraordinary secrets it contains will change her world forever. They will also plunge her into the horrifying heart of the great war which is about to change the future of the human race…

This seventh awe-inspiring adventure in the Mortal Engines series is the work of a superb writer at the height of his powers.
