Book Review: The Quest to the Uncharted Lands by Jaleigh Johnson

The finale to this wonderful book series. I'm excited to review the last story in the World of Solace by Jaleigh Johnson. This has been a wonderful ride and I'm sad its over. Can't wait to see what else Johnson has in-store for her readers.

Summary from Goodreads:

From the acclaimed author of the New York Times bestseller The Mark of the Dragonfly comes another magical and thrilling story that takes readers on an exciting new adventure.

Stella Glass dreams of exploring worlds beyond her home of Solace, but when her famous parents are sent on a historic mission to the Uncharted Lands, it's simply too dangerous for her to join them. By order of the king, she is left behind.

Missing out on the excitement is one thing, but Stella is devastated at the thought of her parents flying into the unknown. So she takes matters into her own hands. Instead of staying with family as planned, she steals away and — right before takeoff — sneaks aboard the airship.

But Stella isn't the only stowaway. In the cargo bay is a boy who is also desperate to get to the Uncharted Lands. And someone else who's determined to keep the ship from making it there at all...


Add on Goodreads



Another wonderful stand alone in a series that has surprised me at every turn of the page.

Stella is a strong willed character, unwilling to be left behind when her parents embark on a mission to the Uncharted Lands. The mission is dangerous and no one has ever come back after attempting the journey. This is why Stella stows away on the airship. She would rather die with her parents than live without them.

Cyrus has a secret. One that he has kept for a very long time, but when he meets Stella, that secret is threatened. A secret that can change the course of the events on the airship.

Toward the end of the book, when all the events seem to come to a head, Stella takes charge in a wonderful and powerful way. She is no longer a child and stowaway, but a leader and an unknowing savior to the crew of the airship.

Favorite Quote:
"Stella’s heart began to beat very fast as she stood in his arms. Thinking about all the hugs she’d shared with her family, this was yet another new one for her. This was Cyrus. A person she’d known only for a short time, but long enough to know she would cross the world for him."

This book deserves a huge 5 out of 5 stars. If I could give it more, I would. I'm sad this series is over, but glad I was able to look into the mind of Jaleigh Johnson. This world has so many secrets that it still needs to share, but the stories are all wonderful and fulfilling. You have to read this book.
