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.

Thank you!

imaginative. so well written, that it allows our imagination to give illustrated life to the characters. it is very easy to lose yourself in this series. the best way to listen to any story is with an open mind. do not try to out maneuver or out wit the story. this is a series that requires an open mind. my friend argued that "Christopher Columbo" did not discover America in 1924. there's your sign. have a great listen. audible up!

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.

Good addition had a small issue (spoilers)

Great addition to the story line. Hester and Tom overcoming obstacles in their relationship was well done and heartwarming. The reappearance of Anna Fang (or at least a thing similar to her) was a good twist. The last conversation between Tom and Anna resolves what was left unsaid when she died in the first volume. The overall description and work building was detailed but not overwhelmingly so. The only issue I had with it was Pennyroyal going back to life like nothing had happened. It wasn’t a satisfying ending for that plot thread but not all characters get what they deserve I suppose. Overall I throughly enjoyed the book and already bought the third.

Bad Chapter

Chapter 19 skips at key points have to use your imagination to fill in gaps.

The story you must find out what's next continue s

I just loved the first book. it was such a unique and compelling story I listened to the first one so fast, this one is just about as great and a great second story in a book leaving you interested in how it ends, so we got the last book and I will start it right now as I just finished this one!

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’

Great read!

I like the author's voice in the story, and about voice, Barnaby Edwards delivers a great performance with the different voices, it's almost like watching a movie!

Listening as a family

Even better than the first book and managed to keep mum, dad and boys aged 11 and 13 hooked. Good to read together.
