Now a Major Motion Picture!
Rising from it's hiding place in the hills, the great Traction City of London chases a terrified little town across the wastelands. It must overpower the small, slower prey, or the city will stop and risk being taken over by another. Tom Natsworthy, Apprentice Historian to the London Museum, is tossed from it's speeding structure into the barren wastelands of Out-Country. Hester Shaw is his only companion and she's a murdering, scar-faced girl who does not want Tom's company.
But if they are to return to London before the Stalkers or hungry cities get them first, they must help each other. Hester claims London is planning on something horrific, and the future of the world could be in the balance. Can they get back to London before it's too late?
