An interesting story about a lost river in the town of Alden, where two kids' persistence and adventurousness work to find a new balance in a town run by the strict Night Coats. Alidade and Lewis find a mysterious creature who guides them in the skills of the Mapmakers as they set out to save the town.

The illustrations are beautiful, though a bit more muted in color than I had expected from the cover. The story was accessible and interesting, and definitely appropriate for middle grades readers.
