Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8-11-Picking up where A Web of Air (Scholastic, 2011) left off, this final installment in the trilogy won't disappoint Reeve's many fans. Fever Crumb returns to London, but the place where she grew up is now unrecognizable. It has been transformed into a city on wheels, thanks in part to Wavey, Fever's mother and London's Chief Engineer. The nomad tribes of the North are threatened by this new moving city and plan to attack. Meanwhile, Wavey hears of a black pyramid in the North Country that might contain useful information about the past. The mother and daughter are inevitably drawn toward the structure, but, on their journey, tragedy strikes, leaving Fever to make some tough decisions and choose alliances she never thought possible. She also meets Cluny Morvish, a member of one of the nomadic warrior tribes and travels with her. Fever's friendship with Cluny changes her perspective on many things, including raising questions about her own sexual identity, which Reeve handles delicately. Beautifully complex language and a fully realized, highly creative future world will draw in readers, although those unfamiliar with the previous books will struggle with characters and concepts. Fever's journey concludes with satisfying answers to long-standing questions about the basis for her society and her own heritage. For die-hard fans of science fiction, it doesn't get much better.-Mandy Laferriere, Staley Middle School, Frisco, TXα(c) Copyright 2011.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By R. M. Fisher TOP 500 REVIEWER on August 27, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Once again I come to review a Philip Reeve book, and once again I'm astounded to find that no one else seems to have anything to say about it. It's also gotten to the stage where it is getter harder and harder to write coherently about Reeve's books when all I want to do is squee indiscriminately. Every time I open a book in the Hungry Cities series, I know without a doubt that I'm in for a fantastic read, and I'm running out of words to describe how wonderful I think they all are.

"Scrivener's Moon" is the third book in the prequel trilogy to the original Hungry Cities quartet, following Fever Crumb and Web of Air. Set in a post-apocalyptic world after a mysterious event known as the Downsizing, humankind now lives in a quasi-steampunk world which has lost all understanding of advanced technology and refer to those that once commanded it as the Ancients. Since then, there has been a different kind of progress at work in the world: the use of the terrifying half-machine half-cadaver soldiers known as Stalkers, the existence of strange Scriven mutates with their long life-spans and dappled skin, and the ongoing development of turning London into the world's first Traction City.

Our protagonist Fever Crumb was raised among the engineers of London, taught to stifle her emotions and to embrace everything rational. Throughout the course of the three books her ability to feel love and pain in equal measure has been a key part of her character development.

In my opinion, the original Mortal Engines quartet are some of the best fiction books one can read, period, end of discussion. I absolutely love them. As a result, I did not wait for the U.S. editions of this series by Mr. Reeve, but brought the British editions. I have also read his Larklight series (Larklight, Starcross, and Mothstorm). All have been excellent reads. In this series, as others have noted, Mr. Reeve moves back in time from the original Mortal Engines story to a period when cities were just beginning to move. It follows the exploits of Fever Crumb, a child found by an Engineer, Dr. Crumb, when she was an infant. As a result of her upbringing, she suppresses her emotions and hates physical contact. In the book Fever Crumb, she discovers that she is actually the granddaughter of Auric Godshawk, the last of the great Scriven overlords of London. In Fever Crumb, we also discover the origins of the Stalker, Shrike (as named in the British edition). She then joins a traveling theater group and ends up in Mayda, an part of southern Spain, as told in A Web of Air. While A Web of Air started slowly, I really liked its ending and how Fever finally got in touch with her feelings. It is the mark of a good writer that a reader cares about what happens to the characters in the book and feels their sorrow when their love leaves. In Scrivener's Moon, Fever returns to London just as her father, Dr. Crumb, has helped relocate all of the important aspects of the City on to a moveable platform. Thus, the beginnings of mobile cities.Read more ›

The first three books of the six, written later, provide a rich, textured experience. Reading the series in the order written provides a picture of a writer growing in depth and nuance. The first three provide foreshadowing to the latter three that is delightful and not overdone.

The female protagonists in the series are carefully drawn and realistic, the approach to friendship and love more mature than in many novels written for adults, and that's a good thing. Things aren't simple for young people experiencing attraction and commitment, love and loss, for the first time. The author explores these with grace and respect.

I believe this is the last in a series by Philip Reeve about a post apocalyptic world. I had read the two books just previous to this one from the library's collection, but they did not have the newest book. I felt this book really wrapped up the series and was very thought provoking. I have not read the first 3 books in the Mortal Engines series and would like to start those now, but have the feeling that it was not necessary to read those before this one.

For those who were disappointed with 'A Web of Air', (sadly, there were / are many of us), then, I am glad to say that the damage has been repaired (probably with spare Stalker parts). Scrivener's Moon allows us to forget the strange interlude, and this puts us back onto the literary now almost complete jigsaw of how the Mortal Engines world came about, and shows us the roots or at least, along with the central characters, learn the roots of same and other aspects of the saga. This is why I say 'It doesn't quite smell the same', it can't, as the world we know in the Mortal Engines series is not truly with us yet (as per the settings / events of this book), but it is a great prelude to the world we all know and love.

Fever Crumb is back with the too-classy Wavey and Doc C. But Fevo and Mumsy take themselves off on a fact-finding expedition, and it is here that the story really gets going. As much as I'd like to, if I go into much more it would be too much of a spoiler. But good ole / bad ole Auric, or more his tinkerings, are never far away, in either the action or the reason, even blame.

Thanks, Mr Reeve, another great read.
