The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the Carnegie Award 2009 and shortlisted for the Bisto Irish Children's Book Award. A fabulous blood racing story that blends adventure, fantasy, history and science fiction and then dusts it with humour: Conor’s destiny is to fly but no one knew that all too soon he’d be flying for real – to save his life!
What the Carnegie Award judges said:
'This is a rollicking read; a terrific tale of derring-do in which Colfer combines brilliant plotting with his customary humour and strong well-rounded characterisation. There is plenty to enjoy in the understated irony and the excellent descriptions of historical gadgets and inventions, but this book also has a convincing and engaging emotional reality.'

One dark night on the island of Great Saltee, fourteen-year-old Conor is framed for a terrible crime he didn't commit. Thrown into prison by the dastardly Hugo Bonvilain, Conor is trapped in a sea swept dungeon and branded a traitor. He must escape and clear his name, he wants his old life back - his family, his friends... and his princess.
