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.
Conor knows there is only one way out. It's an impossible task, which has never been done before.
But Conor is determined to do it. He'll have to fly. Swashbuckling new fiction from the amazing Eoin Colfer, ideal for readers aged 11+.
