May I recommend the "Mortal Engines" quartet by Philip Reeve.  If steam power, giant mobile tracked cities, land yatchs, submarines and submersed cities, airships etc are your bag, then these books will not be a disappointment:

Mortal engines
Predator's Gold
Infernal Devices
A Darkling Plain
They were all drawn to the Keep; the soldiers who brought death; the father and daughter fighting for life; the people who have always feared it; and the one man who knows its secret....

These are great books. Reeve's more recent "Larklight" is terrific as well.
