Sintesi dell'editore

The second book in the exciting Predator Cities series!

When Tom and Hester's little scrapyard aircraft is pursued by rocket-firing gunships, the ice city offers sanctuary. But it is no safe refuge. Devastated by plague and haunted by ghosts, Anchorage is heading for the Dead Continent.

the middle was disappointing

the beginning was good, the ending was good, the middle was insufferable. I only finished it because the first book was Mortal engines. Without giving too much away, I struggled through that cliche big misunderstanding Trope where all the characters have an unneeded conflict and then have to go and mope and do things that are completely out of their character. if you can get through that, it's almost worth it for the end.

Book 2 emphasizes that this series is a YA title

I didn't enjoy this as much as Book #1. This title made the series to me a definite YA title. It did, however, leave me in suspense enough to finish the series.

fantastic characters

so much more exciting than a book - the performance is like a full cast dramatisation. even the title music is worthy on its own.

it was decent. but had some very slow parts

it was agony getting through the slow parts. good plot, and the performance did the best that he could with the story he was given. it was very cutsie in how everything was tied up in a nice neat bow at the end though.

Everything about this

I really enjoy this series. The man that reads it is very good and accents and reads with just enough gravitas. I enjoy the characters and the plot, and I feel the book is very well paced. I often worry with sequels that the story will just be a rehashing of what happened the first time but this was refreshingly different and still interesting. Love this series.

Exciting adventure

Even better and more exciting than the first one!! This only makes me more excited to listen to the 3rd and 4th books, although will be surprised if they beat this book.

Traction cities move on!

I read the book with my son a few years ago . Revisiting it through Audible has been great fun, and Barnaby Edwards’ narration is first rate. The characterisations are first rate, the plot draws you in, and I was completely emersed in the world of traction cities. Can’t wait to get started on ‘Infernal Devices’

Better than the first book by a long shot.

It's better than book 1, but that's not too hard. I liked the story progressing into book 3 and I'm interested to see where it goes.

However the book does suffer from completely pointless plot points and storylines that are only in there for filler just like the first one. They add nothing to the story and it just wastes time. Convenient events, while less than the first are still very much present.

Better, but not amazing. A definite improvement

Not a patch on the first book

Takes forever to get going... So much description of boring stuff that it really makes it hard to care what happens to our heroes Tom and Hester.

We really tried to stick with it but gave up half way because NOTHING HAPPENS.
