Product Description:

Long before the days of Mortal Engines, London is poised on the brink of apocalypse. Huge armoured fortresses are advancing across the wastelands – a new and terrifying kind of enemy. The city is days away from ruin. Buried in London’s past is a secret that may save it. But only one key can unlock it – an odd-looking orphan named Fever Crumb. Set centuries before the events of Mortal Engines, Fever Crumb’s paralysing mission will make your heart stop.

FEVER CRUMB, a prelude to the HUNGRY CITY CHRONICLES, is an outstanding novel that stands very well on its own. Readers who are familiar with the “steampunk” genre will appreciate this novel, and how technology, or rather the lack thereof, is used throughout the story. I will wait patiently for sequels!
