In what order should I read Mortal Engines?
In case you are considering the proper order for this series, I recommend you reading them in published order. Mortal Engines consists of two sagas, the original series is a quartet while Fever Crumb is a trilogy. Fever Crumb is actually a prequel, but despite that, I advise you to read it after the original tetralogy since the prequel has a different tone.
Here you go, this is the best order to read this series:
Mortal Engines read order
- Mortal Engines (Mortal Engines quartet)
- Predator’s Gold (Mortal Engines quartet)
- Infernal Devices (Mortal Engines quartet)
- A Darkling Plain (Mortal Engines quartet)
- Fever Crumb (Fever Crumb trilogy)

- Scrivener’s Moon (Fever Crumb trilogy)
Aditionally, there is a a collection of short stories called Night Flights that you will also enjoy.
