    "Made me sad to finish. Amazing"

    I thought it was brilliant. Probably the best series I've ever read. Cannot see how the film will live up to the books

    "Enjoyed "

    I enjoyed this series I felt as though I was riding in the sky’s with the characters (on the bird roads) on a air ship and side by side thru all the highs and lows of the story.

    "what a finale"

    I read Mortal Engines when I was 12, and only got a couple chapters into Predators gold when I set it down...I am now 22 and over the past 2 months or so I have bought the series of Audio books and listened to them on walks and commutes. Not only is the writing just as good as I remember...but Darkling Plane is the finale the quartet deserves...tying the stories together in a way that is not only immesurably satisfying but also beautiful in the way it's ends our time in the world of the Mortal Engines. I can only hope the coming movies do the books some semblance of justice, but even if they don't I will forever recommend this series as one of my most personal favorites. Exceptionally well read Mr.Edwards, and beautifully crafted Mr.Reeve.
