Mortal Engines Quartet #2: Predator's Gold

Out of the frying pan, into the fire! Except that this fire burns with a very chilly flame. Fleeing from extremist faction The Green Storm, Tom and Hester have ended up drifting in the frozen ice wastes. The Jenny Haniver’s engines have failed, and they’re slowly dying of cold. So when then they stumble upon Anchorage, a once-beautiful ice city, they think they’re going to be saved. But Anchorage is crippled by plague. With barely fifty souls left upon her, its teenage ruler has made a desperate choice. The city is heading for America, the Dead Continent. Out of the frying pan, into the fire – again!
