    This book will get your graphic novel obsessed child reading pro

    This book will get your graphic novel obsessed child reading prose again. Smart, fast-paced storytelling combined with superb graphic-novel inspired illustrations, this book about three orphans (ages 14, 13 and 12) living in a retro-futuristic world, trying to outwit a dystopian government as they use their missing Explorer of the Realm father's map to discover a horde of legendary treasure is the baby that Philip Pullman (The Golden Compass) and Rick Riordan (The Percy Jackson Series) would have had together if they could.

    Kit West was going to the market when he was given a box by a man with a clockwork hand. You see, Kit and his siblings, M.K. and Amerigo Vespucci (Zander), live in a time with no electricity because the main machines were hacked and then outlawed. The box has instructions to find a map written by their late dad, the famous explorer Alexander West. The West kids follow the instructions and find half a map. The kids realize the map is a treasure map, but they don’t know where the second half is. The kids think it is going to be a great adventure until American officials are suddenly interested in the West orphans and their half a map. The West kids soon realize this is no ordinary treasure (if treasure can be ordinary), and there are people out there who will stop at nothing to get it!

    This is an awesome book! The first thing that got me interested in this book was the look of it. The artwork is just awesome. I really like the illustrations that are spread out through the book. They are really cool ! You can tell that they really thought about the look of the book. I really like the inside of the book’s jacket!The hardcover and end pages are just as cool.

    Besides the great artwork, the story is just as great! It is packed with adventure and is very exciting! I love that there is nonstop action (like 90% of the time)! The book has a great “steampunk” style to it. The dystopian world created by Ms. Taylor is VERY unique. There are details like George Washington getting plans to build advanced technology machines back in 1791. I loved reading the book and imagining the story in my head. There are one or two instances of the da** word at the beginning and some mild violence, but I think it is good for kids 10+. I totally recommend this book!
    NOTE** The publisher sent me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
