This is the third book in the Mortal Engines series. For a third effort -- its not bad. The characters of Tom Natsworthy and Hester Shaw (now Natsworthy) are further developed through the storyline's plot. Adding to this particular set of front-line characters are Wren Natsworthy (their daughter), Theo Ngoni, Doctor Zero and Fishcake - one of the Lost Boys. The plot moves along at a very good pace -- providing lots of storylines that appear to fade into an ending -- only to be resurrected at the very end of the book. I'm not going to draw on the plot - leaving that as a surprise for the reader -- but the character development is excellent, the plot development is superb, and the descriptives of the world bring one's imagination to life. Well worth one's time to read - and I'm quite happy to have it as part of my own library.
