Mortal Engines - Philip Reeve


An interesting take on the whole piratey thing.


After mankind blows himself up, some cities re-build their cities with wheels so they can move around and hunt resources.  By 'eating' other cities and towns.  They justify it by calling it Municipal Darwinism.  However, piracy by any other name is still piracy.  

They detest people who live in actual static settlements.  And London is running out of prey.
