Summary
<U+001c>In search of the mysterious element known as aether, Claire Dulac flew her hot air balloon toward the edge of our stratosphere<U+0015>and never returned. Her husband, genius engineer Archibald Dulac, is certain that she is forever lost. Her son, Seraphin, still holds out hope. One year after her disappearance, Seraphin and his father are delivered a tantalizing clue: a letter from an unknown sender who claims to have Claire<U+0019>s lost logbook. The letter summons them to a Bavarian castle, where an ambitious young king dreams of flying the skies in a ship powered by aether. But within the castle walls, danger lurks<U+0015>there are those who would stop at nothing to conquer the stars.<U+0029>-- cover page 4
