Compelling series - great final entry

I enjoyed all 4 books in this series (sometimes called Mortal Engines; sometimes called Hungry City Chronicles) equally. Barnaby Edwards's performance is nuanced and skilled; you can tell right away who's talking and can get to know the characters better based on how he brings them to life. I'm very excited for the movie of book 1 (Mortal Engines), which comes out later this year. Great sci-fi series, highly recommended.

I liked this series before but now I love it

I got into the series because of the trailers for the movie. I liked the first book more than the movie. I love this series now if only because of the conclusion this book gave it. While the premise is fairly outlandish the characters bring it to life. I would whole heatedly recommend this to almost anyone.

Best ending ever.

By the time you’ve gotten to this fourth book you are already committed to the story so I will spare everyone commentary there. What I will say is that it is exceedingly rare for Sci-fi/fantasy stories to tie up all loose ends and craft such a neat and clean “full circle” which brings the reader back to the beginning and with such a sense of satisfaction.

Sorry the series wasn’t longer

Wonderful concept and characters. I wish there were more of these characters. I’ll miss them now that I’ve finished the series.

Adventurous, sad, courageous...

This was by far the best ending for a series I've read/heard. The narrator returns and captures the characters emotions perfectly. Who knew that a stalker could be family!

Favorite of the Series

This book is my favorite of the Mortal Engine series.The Ren/Theo storyline meshes well with the Tom/Hester line. The theme seems to be forgiveness, of others and of one's self. Reeves wove this value in nicely.

Mortal Engines Series

I have just binge listened to this fantastic series of books. I read them years ago but to hear Philip Reeves world and characters brought to life by Barnaby Edwards made me re-read them. The stories throughout the Mortal Engine series really ignite the imagination, they are so solidly thought out. This is definitely one series I would be happy to listen to over and over.

Great book, amazing narrator

The narrator continued to be amazing. He adopted a variety of accents and mannerisms for each and every character which brought the story to life.

This book provides an unexpected ending to the saga and ties up all loose ends from the previous books.

Brilliant narrator.

loved it. The narrator brought every character to life in a way I haven't experienced in other audio books. Awesome piece of acting. Thank you so much. I will seek out other titles performed by the same.
