Reeve announces ME Quartet to be released in Spanish


Just in time for the increased interest in Mortal Engines due to the December 2018 release of the movie, Phillip Reeve has let it be known that all 4 books of the Quartet will be released in the Spanish language.

The first and second novels ME and Predators Gold have already been translated and Infernal Devices and A Darkling Plain are to get the treatment as well.

Here's the official word from Phillip Reeve:

El Oro del Depredador spanish cover"I sometimes get asked by Spanish readers about translations of the Mortal Engines books - the first two have been out of print in Spanish for years, and Infernal Devices and A Darkling Plain never made it *into* print. Well, Maquinas Mortales is out this month, and El Oro del Depredador coming soon.

They're published by Alfaguara, who will be doing the third and fourth volumes in due course too. Covers by David Buisan."

It's a good move by Reeve's publisher as there's 500 million of Spanish speakers around the globe who might be interested in reading on of the greatest adventures ever put to paper ! 

Artist David Buisan has designed the new covers (above and below) and will presumably do the other two novels as well.

Book One is available now on Amazon  and El Oro del Depredador is released in November.
