ThemeThe Theme of the book is "Discovery". This book has so many adventures including the journey North to the pyramid, the contruction of London, and even the journey of war.

Personal EvaluationOverall, this book was good. It was a little bit hard to pick up on, but it eventually got easier. My personal reaction to the book was great. At first, I got it slightly confused with Mortal Engines and seeing the realations both books. I reacted to the book positively; the book had a suspensful end that was a page-turner. can relate to Fever Crumb, because she has many enemys and thinks things through like I do. The reason for some of the events in the exposition was difficult to pick up on.The significane of the title is that the Scrivener's Moon gives life, as the moon gives light in the darkness, so does the Moon give life and control to the Scrivener's. I will know read an excerpt from page 335.
