Publisher's Summary

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.

Irritating narrator

A good end to the trilogy, though I’d love to read more. But the narrator drove me crazy. She did ok with the voices, but when reading the prose, her inflections made it sound like she was reciting in a poetry slam. I much preferred the reader of book two, Jenny Agutter. It was almost a relief to reach the end of this book, though the story was riveting.

Story jumps from one place to another

It’s so hard to follow along! I loved the first set of this series and was honestly hoping this would be better given it’s basically the prequel. I’m going to finish it but honestly, if I knew it was going to go from one story line to another I wouldn’t have gotten it. I’ve read plenty of books that do this but I’ve never had a hard time with them like this book.

5 stars for the story, neg 10 for the narrator

The first 2 books, the narrators were great. This one was painful but I was already invested in the series, so suffered through this one just to listen to the story. Should have read it myself but already purchased the audio book. Holy ridiculous affectations, did the narrator even follow the previous 2 books?

Underwhelmed

I thoroughly enjoyed the Mortal Engines series. This series feels sort of 'warmed over'. I understand that back story is necessary but the characters just did not really capture my imagination or interest. If the Mortal Engines is a bright new star, Fever Crumb is the small, dim planet orbiting it.

Great book and fiting ending to a great series.

Great book and great performance by the voice Actresses. Riveting action and awnsers to questions I've been asking since I read the first Mortal Engines book.

Confusing, disappointing

Reeve seems to have run out of material in this last installment of the Fever Crumb trilogy. A great deal of the latter half of the story concerns Fever’s besotted interest with a female from another tribe, and there is the obligatory war at the end in which I found I did not care about any of the participants.

If the Fever Crumb narrative was to explain the the impossibly impractical reasons for a moving city from the viewpoint of a technical mind, it fell short.

Still, Reeve’s word craft added interest to an otherwise languishing finale.

Book 5 stars; narration negative 5 stars

Loved all the ME and FC books but had to force myself to finish this due to the narrator's atrocious character voices and accents. If I hadn't already been so emotionally invested in the series, I would have not continued to listen to this book. Book, 5 stars; narration, negative 5 stars.

We love this series!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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.

What other book might you compare Scrivener's Moon to and why?

The Predator Cities series, also by Philip Reeves. Why aren't they on Audible!
