1: The Setting *This book takes place in the Saltee Islands, a fiction chain of islands of the western coast of Europe. *The book happens in a range of several years, from 1878 to 1894.

3: The Plot *The main character is Conor Broekhart, a strong but gangly youth. *He was born about 1500 feet in the air, and was taught fencing, areonautics, science, etc. by Victor Vigny. *Good King Nicholas rules the Saltee Islands in the time that the book takes place.
4: The Plot (continued) *When Conor is fourteen to fifteen years old, something terrible happens, and Conor tries to intervene, but gets caught by the notorious Marshall and is thrown into a prison, where he is forced to mine diamonds in terrible conditions.
5: The Plot (continued) *That only leaves one option for escape: the air. *It sends Conor into an evil and twisted world, but Conor finds it worth the escape of Little Saltee. *The adventures will keep you holding the book and you won't be able to set it down.
