    Again I have to admit the man has no problems with endings. Still it took a month for me to get over my growning frustration with the series particularly after book 3 for me to bear down and finish the series.

    What it really took was for me to understand what was happening. The series is an idea based series not a character based series. What was getting me so frustrated in the idiot plotting was that I could see the authors hand reaching into the story and moving the characters around So he could get to the part the story he was really wanting to tell.

    Ok, the best part of this series was the ending of it. Some I still cared about the characters, part of it was the voice acting in the audibles version. It really does pull the reader and listener in deep. Which is what also made getting pulled out of the story so jarring when a character is moved by the author to push the plot.

    That said I would recommend the story to anyone who enjoys a good hook or an idea story without getting too deep into personalities or consistant character development current. There is a lack of well reasoned character growth for example Tom remains way to naive and Idiotic throughout the story to have grown up in this world. The author used him so much you could see his finger prints on the character.

    This could have been one my favorite series ever consider the talent of author in his endings and the idea.

    This is a PG13 series and I think younger readers or less avid ones might get carried off into it without getting pull out at all.

    This series can teach writers a lot. It may come down to taste.

    I just finished this book, and this was just an absolute fantastic conclusion to this series.

    After reading the final 3 books after a long space between the first couple, it was just stunning to follow the stories of Hester, Tom, Wren, and the other characters.

    I loved the plotting of the book. I loved that I kept anticipating what might happen to the heros of the story as well as the villains and I love the nothing was as straightforward as it may have seemed in the beginning.

    I’d recommend this to anyone at all.


  3. says:

    I liked it enough to recommend it to others. The many story lines came together smoothly but with enough surprise and variety that they remained interesting all the way through. I found it relentlessly moving from one group to another with each having just enough adventure and respite to keep my attention without burning me out. It was an Audible book so it was not exactly a 'page turner' but I listened to the whole thing in a weekend.


  4. says:

    I loved the ending, the way that the author keeps you in the dark about how things are going to work out to the very, very end, and how all the characters are true to the author's character development throughout the books. This story capped a wonderful series full of original ideas and imagination.


  5. says:

    It’s rare to find good writing and a great imagination in today’s massive self publishing world, but this series of four books, meets and exceeds the reader’s expectations.

    I enjoyed this book and have have really enjoyed this series. This book was a wonderful conclusion to the series!

    The big picture, the real comparison between this truly imaginative world and our changing environment. Great story telling, memorable characters, humor and pathos all rolled together. Just hope the movie stays true to the books.

    A Darkling Plain, by Philip Reeve, brings to a conclusion the author’s Predator Cities Quartet, and what a conclusion it is. Like the earlier books in the series it is filled with action and adventure, humour, a touch of romance, and some difficult truths about the predilections of mankind. All this is set on a future earth, ravaged by a Sixty Minute War which caused massive geological upheaval and changed the manner in which survivors may live.

    When the story opens, Theo has returned to his family in Zagwa but cannot forget the kiss he shared with Wren. Tom is travelling the Bird Roads with his daughter, both keeping busy in their attempts to put behind them their break from Hester. At a trading post Tom spots a face he recognises from his time in London where he thought everyone had been killed by Medusa. With his health deteriorating Tom mulls the possibility of revisiting the wreck of his old home city.

    The Green Swarm and the Traction Cities have embarked on an uneasy truce but there are many on both sides who are unhappy with this peaceful acceptance of alternative ways of life they have been raised to regard as detestable. Rogue elements are determined to quash their enemies by whatever means necessary. When Tom and Wren are chartered to take a wealthy young mayor in waiting, Wolf, on a reconnaisance flight to what is left of old London, they get caught up in violent intrigues where trust is scarce.

    Hester has been reunited with Stalker Shrike and is travelling on a sandship, intent on not allowing herself to care for anyone again. When she encounters captive slaves, recognising them from her previous life, she becomes embroiled in rivalries from both sides of the war.

    Fishcake has done what he can to repair Stalker Fang who is eager to return to Batmunkh Gompa that she may avenge all who have failed her and, alone, turn the world green. Despite her deadly focus, she becomes the closest thing the abandoned young Lost Boy has to a longed for parent.

    When a fearsome new weapon starts attacking from the sky, old grievances risk destroying what progress has been made in this violent and increasingly fragile new world. The race is on to prevent mankind’s annihilation.

    This is an engaging and fast moving romp through an imaginatively constructed if somewhat violent fantasy world, but I would recommend reading the full series to gain the most from the story told. The quartet is proof, if anyone still needs convincing, that young adult fiction can be enjoyed by competent readers of any age. The final page is as satisfying as any I have read.

    I'm still reading this last one of the series, I've loved the books and the adventure, I've enjoyed following Hester & Tom. Theres part of me that thinks the story line utterly bizarre but I was hooked by the end of the first book and I've gobbled up the 2 leaving me with this one and I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

    What makes a good book? Maybe if it has a good storyline, maybe if it's well written, maybe if it speaks to our own prejudices and preferences. Maybe if it hits those spots and a few , then we think "YES!"

    And this whole series does just that. All these names that seem to come out of our atavistic memories like Kriegmarshall Kobold and Panzerstadt Winterthur, Wolverinehampton and Airhaven. ODIN which is Reagan's SDI. Sayings like "It is a truth universally acknowledged that an explorer with a good fortune must be in search of a wife".

    And most importantly number 1 son loved it and read all the books without any encouragement from me.

    As the last book reaches it's closing moments tears are already streaming down my cheek, but the final line is one of the most satisfying final lines of any book I have read. In fact a quick Google of best closing lines could not reveal a better one.

    And this is a children's book. My only criticism, is that it might have been a trilogy rather than a quartet. I found I tired of Uncle and his Lost Boys (Fagin rather than Peter Pan in case you are wondering).

    Happy reading.

    I suppose this review applies to all four books in the Mortal Engines Quartet.

    It's pointless coming into A Darkling Plain without having read the first three installments. Unlike the first two, this one makes no attempt to stand up as a self contained narrative. We need to be familiar with the characters, the environment in which they exist and the things they've done over the course of two decades.

    Lucky for us, however, that the preceeding books were so good (the third being, in my opinion, the weakest of the bunch, but still enjoyable stuff).

    Throughout the saga, Philip Reeve is very generous in allowing his characters to change, grow and in some cases become flawed and unlikeable as the adventures proceed. regardless of how novel, rich and exciting his future vision of hungy cities and Municipal Darwinism might be, it's the continuous character evolution that keeps us hooked.

    In this final tome, it's also become clear that Reeve is aware of Mortal Engines' potential as a movie franchise, as the language and structure become quite explicitly cinematic. If the rumours are true that an option of the series has been bought by Peter Jackson's Wing Nut Productions, this could have been a very sensible career move.

    Regardless, the yarn is a ripping one from start to finish. We actually care about the characters. The sci fi world that Reeve creates is novel and intriguing without ever feeling contrived. It's violent and bloody and gritty and merciless at times, but there's also some nice innocent humour there too (I especially liked the fact that we meet two brothers named Lego and Duplo). A Darkling Plain is action packed than its predecessors, but that's not a complaint I thoroughly enjoyed the ride. The ending is emotional and moving. Sad, but also quite uplifting in its final pages.

    Apparently, it's a good read for kids too this reviewer is aged 39. I would never offer it as a bedtime read for my six year old, but as soon as he's old enough to handle books of that length and complexity, I'll give him strict instructions not to touch anything so violent and scary, while making sure to leave them carelessly lying around the house

    Extraordinary book, a stark, exciting end to a very creative series. I felt Reeve had the courage to go all the way with his characters and his themes, through a real roller coaster ride of twists and turns, deaths and rebirths, elemental changes. I found myself needing to just read, and immerse myself in his intricate world. There are a lot of characters and a lots of tying plots and lives together, but in very unexpected ways. And the ending is totally stunning, diving deep into some very strong territory, I had to read the last pages through again several times to take them in. Worth travelling all the way to this concluding adventure.
