Hundreds of years after a cataclysmic event known as The Sixty Minute War, humanity has regrouped into mobile societies - cities on wheels that consume each other for survival. Hester Shaw, a disfigured young woman with a mysterious past, is on a mission to bring down London, the largest and most dangerous of the predator cities. Her unlikely allies include a young historian and the leader of an underground resistance group, both with motives of their own. Based on the epic YA quartet by author Phillip Reeve.
