Pushed high into the sky by a storm over the Indian Ocean, the
decrepit training ship Flotsam makes an astonishing
discovery before being forced to descend. Adrift at 20,000 feet is
a tattered, ice-crusted airship bearing the name Hyperion. Could it
really be the legendary lost craft, now a vast treasure, a frozen
mausoleum to a ghostly crew?
Matt Cruse is the only member of
Flotsam''s oxygen-starved crew able to remember the ghost
ship''s coordinates-and it seems as if everyone in the fabulous
city of Paris wants them. Matt and Kate de Vries are challenged
with another thrilling adventure, this time among the icy dangers
and strange wonders of the upper atmosphere.
Hang on for the ride of your life as Kenneth
Oppel, one of Canada''s greatest children''s authors, returns to a
richly imagined world of airships and adventure!
