The Scriven people are brilliant, mad - and dead. All except one, whose monstrous creation is nearly complete - a giant city on wheels. New London terrifies the rest of the world, and an army of mammoth-riders gathers to fight it. Meanwhile, young Fever Crumb begins a hunt for Ancient technology in their icy strongholds. She finds a mysterious black pyramid full of secrets. It will change her world forever. Scrivener's Moon follows Fever Crumb and A Web of Air to complete one of the most exciting and inventive fantasy adventures series ever recorded for audio.

Poor narrator, loved author's narration of first book in series and Jenny Agutter good too, but am sad to say l feel this narration felt forced, everything over pronounced every other word seems to be read as if underlined or with an exclamation mark.
Hope this book will be released again with Philip Reeve as narrator or just anyone better!
Was disappointed that the narrator made characters sound really posh. This created discrepancy between this book and the rest of the series.
The excellence of Garth Nix's work is without question but how on earth could Audible allow such an inept reader to narrate it
Sarah Coomes has no feeling for this book and is obviously unaware of the power of the material that she presents. Her intonation can be compared to that of a foreign language student where the end of every statement end with an up-tilted ,questioning tone.
I looked forward to the release of this audio book for so long but was nearly brought to tears by the narration. There are so many excellent narrators in your stable.
Please, Audible, listen to this yourselves and never do this to me again.
"We love this series!"
My children and I love this whole series. Philip Reeves creates a whole amazing world, similar enough to ours that it is families, yet alien.
The Predator Cities series, also by Philip Reeves. Why aren't they on Audible!
"Terrible reader compared to the official versions"
Yes get a better reader
The other two Fever Crumbs read by Philip and Jenny Agutter - Philip was great reading Fever Crumb, and though she wasn't quite so good, Jenny still brought A Web of Air alive.
obviously had no interest in the book whatsoever, her reading sounded forced throughout.
Wait for a proper audio version (which I expected this would be) - not one of these 'Scholastic' ones
