Years after the events of Gentleman’s Guide and Lady’s Guide, Monty and Felicity’s younger brother, Adrian Montague—who stands to inherit his family’s estate—sets out on his own adventure to find his disowned siblings after discovering he’s not an only child.

Return to the enchanting world of the Montague siblings in the finale to the New York Times bestselling and Stonewall Honor-winning series, featuring a teenage Adrian Montague as he desperately seeks the now adult Monty and Felicity—the older siblings he never knew he had.

Adrian Montague has a bright future. The sole heir to his father’s estate, he is an up and coming political writer and engaged to an activist who challenges and inspires him. But most young Lords aren’t battling the debilitating anxiety Adrian secretly lives with, or the growing fear that it might consume him and all he hopes to accomplish. In the wake of his mother’s unexpected death, Adrian is also concerned people will find out that he has the mental illness she struggled with for years.

When a newly found keepsake of hers—a piece of a broken spyglass—comes into Adrian’s possession, he’s thrust into the past and finds himself face to face with an older brother he never knew he had. Henry “Monty” Montague has been living quietly in London for years, and his sudden appearance sends Adrian on a quest to unravel family secrets that only the spyglass can answer.

In pursuit of answers about the relic, the brothers chart a course to locate their sister Felicity. But as they travel between the pirate courts of Rabat, Portuguese islands, the canals of Amsterdam, and into unknown Artic waters, the Montague siblings are thrown into one final adventure as they face a ghostly legend that threatens their whole family.

Gr 9 Up-Adventure, ahoy! Nineteen-year-old Lord Adrian Montague is "sensitive as a new bruise," the secretly liberal son of a repressive father, and suspects that the mysterious death of his mother has something to do with the famous ghost ship The Flying Dutchman-is it any wonder that he's a nervous wreck? He decides to investigate the reason for his mother's death and on the way, comes upon a series of startling revelations, beginning with the existence of his two pugnacious older siblings, Monty and Felicity. While Adrian's search for The Flying Dutchman takes him from the slums of London and the pirate republics of Morocco to the university crypts of Amsterdam and Icelandic ice fields, the more important journey is inward, as Monty and Felicity help him navigate and manage his anxiety and obsessive-compulsive tendencies. Lee draws a fine line, balancing Adrian's beliefs in the supernatural with the potential that he is haunted not by external forces but by his own mind. The novel palliates Adrian's insecurity with Monty's abrasive, bawdy charm and Felicity's uncompromising intellect. While sibling bonds take center stage in supporting Adrian's grieving process, fans of Monty and Percy will find satisfaction, too. Lee's writing is as exquisite as ever, in both the nuanced rendering of Adrian's emotional landscape and the gritty world surrounding him, with specific details, from coffee that's "viscous like saliva" to the handprints left by abandoned monkeys in a sailor's bar. VERDICT Fans and newcomers to Lee's trilogy will delight in a swashbuckling tale grounded in compassion and love.-Katherine Magyarody
