    1. The third book in the World of Solace series. The Iron War is over and the two countries launch an expedition to cross the mountains into an unexplored land, with a crew culled from the best of each. Stella Glass is a stowaway on the airship “Iron Glory” to be with her parents and finds herself thrown together with a boy named Cyrus, with strange powers and gadgets, of about her own age, who is trying to get back home, after being abandoned during a trip to Solace. After some danger trying t [...]

    2. There is nothing better than a fun, fast paced, and well written middle grade fantasy book, and Jaleigh Johnson delivered everything I was hoping for with The Quest to the Uncharted Lands. The world-building was engaging, the characters were fun and unique, and the action never stopped. I loved each of the characters and found myself relating to each of them on some level. The reader joined the crew on their way to the Uncharted Lands and we found two young and innocent stowaways as well as one [...]

    3. Stella can't bear to be left behind when her parents join the crew of the first airship sent to explore the Uncharted Lands. So she plans to smuggle away only to find that she's not the only stowaway aboard the Iron Glory. While this story stands alone, as a fan of the World of Solace books, it was fun to spy references to familiar people and places. I do hope there will be more stories!

    4. This book is one of the better books I have read. It has creativity, and a bit of originality. On my ranking of books in this series, this book is only bested by the Secrets of Solace.I like the recurring element, a kind of insect always plays an important role in the story. This time it was a machine modeled after a beetle that can record messages and deliver them to the user without any specific directions.In this book, the mystery of the sentient machines is solved. There is a city beyond the [...]

    5. Next, please! I hope there’s a next, would be awesome to see all the previous book’s characters hanging out together. 😍

    6. The war in Solace has ended and its leaders are forging a fragile alliance and partnership, starting with a quest to the mysterious Uncharted Lands. Stella Glass’ healer parents are a part of the mission and will set off on the Iron Glory airship, bound for unknown danger and perilwhich is why Stella stows away on the airship, determined to keep her parents safe. Once on board, Stella discovers another stowaway, an unusual boy named Cyrus with even more unusual abilities and secrets. And soon [...]

    7. Stella lives with her parents in the Dragonfly Territories, and the Iron War with the country to the north, Merrow, is finally at an end. Now the two have joined together to form an exploration party to try to cross the dangerous Hiterian Mountains, which no one from either country has ever crossed. Stella's medical parents are part of the crew of the Iron Star, the airship designed for the trip, and Stella can't live with the thought that they're leaving her behind--what if something happens to [...]

    8. I am such a ginormous fan of Jaleigh Johnson and the World of Solace. This is one of the best middle-grade fantasy series out there right now and The Quest to the Uncharted Lands is by far my favorite of the three. I don't know how Johnson manages it, but each book just gets better and better. I related a lot of this to the fact that while all three books of the World of Solace series belong to the same world, they can each be read as a stand alone. Together, they bring together three distinctl [...]

    9. This awesome midgrade novel follows Stella, a young alchemist and healer, as she stows away in the cargo hold of a blimp. It’s on a mission to explore the Uncharted Lands, a part of the realm that has never been explored before. Stella’s parents are recruited to go on the mission (they’re both world renowned healers), and Stella is scared for their safety, so she sneaks onto the ship. On her first day hiding in the cargo hold she comes across a mysterious boy with golden eyes putting a pro [...]

    10. Not a bad addition to the Solace series. My biggest beef is that I feel like the author needs to pick a specific audience. I felt that way with the last book, too. It's categorized as JV fantasy. I feel like the plot could easily have been tweaked to merit Teen status, and would have been more enjoyable for me if it had. But the dialogue was super cheesy, and the characters would keep saying things like, "You're my most important friend," and giving each other a hug. So perhaps a younger audienc [...]

    11. For the first time, the Merrow and Dragonfly kingdoms have a cooperative mission launching to explore the uncharted lands over the mountains. Stella Glass really wants to be on the ship, but since the crew is tightly restricted, she has no choice but to stow away. Then she runs into a boy who introduces unexpected complications to her journey, and a saboteur who wants the whole expedition to fail . . .Like the other two Solace books, this one stands alone, although it has a few nods to some even [...]

    12. Of all the Solace books, I think this has been my favorite so far. It had a depth to it that the previous books lacked. Not that they were bad in any way, but this one was the pinnacle.Stella and Cyrus were both excellent characters. She was resourceful, curious, and interesting. I liked her various talents and how willing she was to admit she was wrong. Cyrus was a also interesting, with his powers and abilities. I liked his selfless attitude. The two of them were great friends, with possible r [...]

    13. Johnson, Jaleigh The Quest to the Uncharted Lands (Dragonfly #3), 336 pages. Delacorte (Random), 2017. $17. Content: G.The first expedition to the Uncharted Lands is ready to take off. Stella’s parents are in that group and she is determined not to be left behind – even if she has to stowaway. That part of the plan was simple, but nothing after that is. Not only is there another stowaway – a boy, Cyrus, who is from the Uncharted Lands, but another stowaway is determined to sabotage the ent [...]

    14. In this third book taking place in the world of Solace, the Iron War between the Dragonfly Territories and the Kingdom of Merrow is finally over. The people are now working together on the first air ship that will take them to the Uncharted Lands. Stella's parents are both healers who are asked to accompany the party on their mission. Fearing that she may never see them again, Stella (an accomplished alchemist in her right) stows away on board. She is surprised to find Cyrus, another stowaway, w [...]

    15. Rating: 4.5 / 5 starsThis series is near and dear to my heart. I look forward to every addition due to Johnson's amazing cast of characters, wondrous lands and heartwarming storylines. These books contain my guiltiest of pleasures--fantasy/scifi with a touch of romance (it's not much since these are meant for younger folk (and are about younger folk), but it's enough of a lead to hope for). Yet it's more than that, there is something about these stories that make them sparkle. A proper review to [...]

    16. It started a tad slow, not sure where the character was in relation to the world, but once the story started rolling it is a fun adventure. It was nice that the main character was intelligent. It didn't take her half the book to figure out there was a saboteur on board- no. She started to suspect when trouble occurred and it she knew an experienced and well taught crew wouldn't have made such a stupid and obvious mistake. It's got a nice mix of action, mystery and adventure. The characters are f [...]

    17. My 13 year old liked this one the best of the trilogy of companion books. I'm not sure it's as cool as the first one that had the awesome characters and tricked out train, but I did enjoy it quite a bit. It was really neat to get a glimpse in the uncharted lands. This author does a great job at world building. This book had some references to the second book which was cool. I like how Solace keeps changing between books and more is revealed to the reader. I hope there are more books. One thing I [...]

    18. Reviewed by Miriam Wagner for San Diego Book ReviewStella Glass is a stowaway on the airship the “Iron Glory” on its trip to the uncharted lands of Solace. Her parents are on the ship, so Stella came along so she would know what happens to them. The mountains they have to cross are very dangerous and could literally destroy the ship, and Stella doesn't want to be left parentless.You can read this entirereview and others like it at San Diego Book Review.

    19. The Quest to the Uncharted Lands is Book 3 in the World of Solace series. Even those who have not read the previous two books will not have a problem following the story. Stella chooses to stowaway on the Iron Glory airship because she does not wish to be away from her parents for their long expedition. Cyrus’s reason for stowing away upon the ship is to return home to the uncharted lands. The two must work together to save the ship from the Faceless man. He is determined to see the Iron Glory [...]

    20. I really liked Stella and Cyrus. I marveled at their determination and bravery. That family and friendship matter more than discovery and power was a hopeful view of how life and society can be.I also can't wait to read the trilogy again so I can discover forgotten details and put the stories together.On my never ending quest to find ways to promote kindness and sharing over fear and greed, these books could provide a way to examine difference and the need to accept and understand, rather than j [...]

    21. Didn't realize this was a third book in a series whoops! Decent book, though, lackluster climax. (view spoiler)[ Stella just pokes the Faceless man with the Lazuril wand thing and, even though Cyrus said it could be fatal against Olorans, all he does is become unconscious. Seriously? It wasn't even brought up she could've killed him, just uh. It was also weird that even Cyrus's dad spoke it flawlessly. But yeah, pretty good book. (hide spoiler)]

    22. I love how all these books are set in the same world, but each book is its own story. The characters from previous books are only briefly mentioned (which is kind of nice, but kind of sad too, I want to know what happened to them!) and events in previous books are referred to as well. Good characters in this one, good story. It just didn't captivate me as much as the first two books in the series. I hope there will be more!

    23. Another awesome adventure in the world of Solace. The author is so good at combining compelling adventure with well-developed characters. In the acknowledgments, it seemed like this would be the last one, which makes me sad. I want to meet more characters from this world. And I would love to see a novel that brings them all together somehow. But for now I will just be grateful for the stories we have.

    24. The last of a three book collection of stories set in Solace, The Quest to the Uncharted Lands is a fun story about Stella Glass stowing away on an airship to be near her parents and to explore the uncharted lands across the mountains. She doesn't realize that she isn't the only stowaway aboard the Iron Glory, and what unfolds is a tale of adventure, friendship, mystery, loyalty, and independence in the young.This is a steampunk fantasy written for a middle-grade audience. All of the books are c [...]

    25. Every visit to the world of Solace has been richer, deeper, and more satisfying than the last. I thought Lina Winterbock, the heroine of The Secrets of Solace, would be my favorite, given her role as an archivist. But I think Stella Glass was an even more compelling protagonist, with her compassion, ingenuity, and courage in the face of paralyzing fear.

    26. This was a really good read. I really enjoyed her other book Mark of the Dragonfly and am glad to see that this one also held up. It reminded me a bit of Kenneth Oppel or a Rick Riordan novel (although not as humorous), a great fantastical adventure with good characters.

    27. Jaleigh Johnson dose me nothing but good! More people need to read this series! And you don't haft to read them in order they are all stand alone novels in the world of Solace.
