A Darkling Plain

by Philip Reeve
Release date: 2006
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, young adult

The once-great traction city of London is now just a radioactive wreck, a ruin haunted by electrical discharges and the dashed hopes of the people who once called it home - people like Tom Natsworthy. Twenty years after he fled, intending never to return, he discovers that something stirs in the remains of the old city.

Tom and his daughter, Wren, aren't the only people interested in London. The desperate armies of the Traction Cities and the Green Storm are also closing in, certain that whatever is taking shape within the city holds the key to victory in their never-ending war.

But it may be too late. Even as Tom and Wren hurry to uncover the mystery of London, Hester Shaw - estranged from her husband and her daughter - tracks the resurrected Stalker Fang, who has found another way to end the war and all life on the planet once and for all.
