Predator's Gold by Philip Reeve
Predator's Gold (Mortal Engines Quartet) - Philip Reeve

Predator's Gold is book two in the Mortal Engines Quartet. Written as a YA book, it is easy to read, enjoyable, and has plenty of betrayal, violence, death and now a little romance.

 

The book is again about the journeys of young Tom (now age sixteen)  and Hester and their struggle to stay alive.  Reeve sends our couple to the moving ice city called Anchorage that is governed by a young margravine by the name of Freya.  It is her job to keep the city moving, getting her directions from the ancient ice gods, but being the last in her line and most of the city lost to a plague makes things difficult.  Reeve does a good job of making sure that where ever Tom or Hester goes gloom and despair is sure to follow.

 

But enough of the spoilers.  If YA fantasy/science fiction is something you're looking for, then search no more. The 2nd book in the Mortal Engines Quartet series is worth reading.

After 1987's Predator, There Are The Comics...
Predator - The Essential Comics Vol.1 - Mark Verheiden,Chris Warner,Ron Randall

When Predator was released unexpectedly in 1987, it was one of the finest science fiction movie of its time since the release of Alien in 1979. In 1989, Dark Horse published Predator, the comic book series as an in-direct sequel to the movie before 1990 Predator 2. I have not read any of the comic versions until finally, I bought this... and I have some mix feelings towards it.

 

Predator: The Essential Comics Volume 1 features three reprinted mini-series that was published before over the years and one never before published adaptation of Predator 2 until now. In Predator: Concrete Jungle, the story takes place in New York city where during the hottest summer, the Predator is on the hunt again... except, he brings his compatriots. Detective Schaefer, brother of Major Alan "Dutch" Schaefer, together with Detective Rasche investigates the murders and the conspiracy of one certain general that was involved from the movie. As the Predators invade New York City, it take Schaefer and Rasche to save the day. In Predator: Cold War, the Predators are now in Siberia and once again, on the hunt. Schaefer and Rasche once again together with a beautiful Russian soldier will stop the Predators on their hunting game... only the Russian government and the American government and a certain general want the Predators technology. In Predator: Dark River, its summer all over again and this time, a crazed Predator from Schaefer's past returns and wreck havok in South America. Once again, Schaefer investigates and this time, he will put an end to it.

 

The comic book series is filled with a lot of one-liners and cheesy action. I can see that writer Mark Verheiden really love the movie and so, his style of writing is similar to how the 1980s are then but it doesn't get any better. Although I do feel the concept of the Predator universe is some what not understood, its not exactly the best of its own when it comes to reading. On art, Chris Warner and Ron Randalldid a good job capturing the presence of the characters. Its not really good and its not that terrible. Its just how it is when reading a Predator adaptation comic and felt as if a fan would have envision it. Overall for me, Predator: The Essential Comics Volume 1 would appeal to fans but not as an introductory story to those who are not familiar with.
