When I finished Fever Crumb I never wanted it to end, it is a gripping thrill ride.

Fever is a 13 year old girl who has grown up as an engineer. She has had her head shaved as is the tradition in the guild of engineers, and works with old tech. Her life is suddenly changed when she finds out that her mother is one of the old enemy, and her foster father, Kit Solent, is her real father.

This book really appealed to me because it is fast paced with amazing detail. I loved it. I would recommend it to ages 12 plus.

Fever Crumb is the prequel to the great Mortal Engines series (but it can be read as a standalone).

-PREQUEL:
1. Fever Crumb
2. A web of Air
3. Scrivener's Moon
- ORIGINAL 'PREDATOR CITIES' QUARTET:

2. Predator's Gold

I couldn't put this book down. It was captivating! Sometimes I would have to re-read a chapter because I missed something. I like female heroines, because I can typically relate to the character. Overall this book is great!

Fever Crumb is definitely not the sort of stuff I generally read (although I'm pretty open to anything) but I figured I'd give it a try anyways. It definitely was intriguing, however by the second book I felt the story's conclusion was really rushed and easy to get lost in (and not in a good way). Fever is definitely a cool heroine though; not one you normally come across.
I found Reeve's method of writing entertaining. It made it a little bit easier to wrap my head around the concept of the post-apocalyptic world and all the different customs, beliefs, etcetera considering one could say I more or less came across this book not sure what to expect at all.

I have to agree with the person two comments down from me.
After the second part it became pretty messed up.

loved this book. I especially enjoyed all the quirky versions of actual London place names in the post apocalyptic setting. Well-paced, and very visual.

I never got a firm grasp on the setting. I was really frustrated by that.
