Description

Brimming with mystery and treasure, this action-packed tale sends a boy in need of luck and girl in need of a friend on an adventure that will change their lives forever. Meet George, the third Lord of Devonshire and the unluckiest boy in London. Why is George so unlucky? First, he's an orphan. Second, unless he sells everything, he's about to lose his house. So when his family's last heirloom, a priceless map to the Star of Victory (a unique gem said to bring its owner success in any battle) is stolen by a nefarious group of criminals, George knows that there is no one less lucky-or more alone-than he is. That is until Ada Byron, the future Countess of Lovelace, bursts into his life. She promises to help George recover his family legacy, and is determined to find her own father along the way-all in a flying machine she built herself. Joined by a mischievous orangutan and the long-lost son of an infamous pirate, Ada and George take off on a cross-continent journey through the skies that will change their lives, and perhaps the world, forever.

Professional reviews

"This steampunk novel melds history and a mystery-packed adventure. Polly Lee energetically narrates the story of George, the third Lord of Devonshire, who believes he has bad luck because he is an orphan. It seems like anyone he gets close to dies. When his priceless family heirloom, a map to the hidden gemstone called the Star of Victory, is stolen, he is joined by a young inventor named Ada Byron, a boy named Oscar, and his orangutan. The story follows the young explorers as they traverse multiple continents in search of the missing map. As Lee captures the suspense in her narration, young and older listeners alike will be intrigued by this high-action story. C.G. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
