Paris is a French-speaking city referred to in both the Mortal Engines Quartet, where it is a traction city, and in the Fever Crumb series, where it is a rival to London that is rumoured to be preparing to mobilise.
By the time of Predator's Gold (and presumably in the time of Mortal Engines as well), Paris is seen as an exotic and sophisticated tourist destination. Nimrod Pennyroyal wrote many of his books there.
