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.

Great series!

I really enjoyed this series. Barnaby did an amazing job of making the characters come to life! I wish the ending had been different but overall this book really tied together the series. It did leave a few openings for branching out with Wren's story; so hopefully there will be more to come.

A fitting end to a great series

Barnaby Edwards does a masterful job of narrating the characters and bringing each scene of this final book in the Mortal Engines series to life.

Arguably the best book in the series, it does a wonderful job of concluding our time in the world of the Mortal Engines.

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!

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.

Very satisfying ending.

Page Turner. Nearly weaves together all character plot lines. All characters have deep personality.

Now that's a proper end to an avesome story.

Book 2 was a bit underwhelming, but all else was amazing. No stupid "and they lived long after" ending, and sad death of the main characters was interrupted with cheering moments etc.
Most importantly- no loose ends left untied at the end, none important enough for me to remember anyway.

A story of cities

Excellent story, very enjoyable to listen. Recommended but first read the books that came before for context.
