SO THAT"S why I can't find a copy.

That's my theory for my country at least. I went to a book warehouse sale. INFINITE 2010 reissues! Oh, and I got a 2006 hardcover A Darkling Plain and 2005 hardcover Infernal Devices. But still, no one seems to be buying the 2010 reissues. $5 people, buy it and read the whole series for $20! Oh, infinite Fever Crumb too... I swear there are as many A Darkling Plains and Infernal Devices as there are Clockwork angels.

I must find these fabled "warehouse sales" and purchase the whole series ten times over. Then I will hoard the unused copies until the movie comes out and sell them online for a fortune! Then I will use that money to buy a furniture store specializing in flimsy, impossible to assemble furniture. People will become so confused that they'll follow the included instructions without question. Insert tab A into slot B, insert tab B into slot C, submit to the Brain Traction.

It's funny how this has basically become the unofficial Leviathan and Mortal Engines forum.

I've never been to a Barnes & Noble that did. Try Amazon if you don't really care which edition you get.

The German Edition has a pretty nice cover...

Amazon UK has the 1st edition softcover reprints of 2007. I got that. Hey, at least it's still the 1st edition cover. If you don't mind used items, you can get true 1st edtion hardcover.

I'll add a used 1st edition ME and Predator's Gold to my next Amazon order, thank you.  ;D

Link to the german cover? (Not like I can read german).
