Absolutely brilliant! This has captured Prof Pennyroyal perfectly and for that, I say well done. I have tried (unsuccessfully) myself before now, but this is perfect! Keep up the good work!

There isn't nearly enough Mortal Engines fanfiction, but it's quality, not quantity, right?

You've captured the blustering, pompous Pennyroyal perfectly in this, as if he really had written it himself (although the amount of interjections and tangents disrupt the flow of the story, characteristic as it may be)

Basically It's great fun and I love the references slipped in :)

Hello, i am really eager as to read more of this wonderfull fic. As already mentioned in rewiews you manage to capture his personality and his PoV flawlessly!

I would be more than happy to beta read this fic if you need someone to. Also, i am wondering if this is a AU fic or not?

Happy writings my friend! I truly hope you focus on this fic :)

Hugs, a fellow historian!

Very nice, can't find any peticular flaws and the righting is very fluent. It's exacly what I expected out of Pennyroyal.

I wonder if he will mention the famouse WW2 tacticion Leroy Jenkins, who defeated the Germans at the battle of Bunker Hill.

Still good, still good. Though I noticed a couple things in the previous chapter you might want to change for Canonial reasons:

First: You spelled Cloud 9 with the word nine. It's the number, not the word.

Secondly: The Mayor of Brighton lives on Cloud 9, and as this take place before Infernal Devices, it doesn't make sense to have Pennyroyal living there.

Just pointing this out, one Hungry City Chronicles fan to another.

Great fun, and definitely looking forward to the next update. Though I read both chapters, I decided to review this one simply because that's where I spotted the potential grammatical issues.

- 'Hello, bonjour and guten Tag, dear reader'

Might want a comma after 'bonjour' - I'm aware that it's often a matter of preference, but to me, it seems to read better.

- 'Cloud nine'

Capital N, surely?

- 'After braving my brush with death at the hands of a technologically enhanced Wally Mammoth (a seven metre tall red and white-striped jumper- you can read the further details in my tale There’s Wally!) I was not too eager to plunge myself back into the dangers of exploring.'

Loved this bit, but a comma after the brackets might help the sentence's flow.

- 'The mysterious stranger sighed, settled down into his seat, pulled his wide-brimmed hat forward on his head and began his fascinating tale…'

Comma time again - same issue as with the first one. I'd advise an extra one after 'head'.

Other than that, I didn't see anything, which is rare indeed in a fanfic.

Keep it coming!

Bloody Hull this is good!

At last, we witness the bullshit that is Pennyroyal. The chapters could be a bit longer though.

Any chance of you doing Predator's Gold? (His book, not the second one in the series)
