In a land known as Grittle, far, far away, there are flying ships and jumper boots. Abandoned, a white-haired pirate known as Xoey is rescued by the Tinkertons, an inventive and creative family. When the parents of the Tinkertons are captured, Xoey and her friends set out on a journey.
Together they navigate through the hustle and bustle of Upper City, figure out how to survive the clutches of a wind tunnel, and duel against a horrid leader who will stop at nothing to destroy the one destined to bring him down.
So begins the adventure that will take Xoey through a world filled with mechanical contraptions, red furry gnomes, and the magic mystery of the Djinn. This is the story of fate and friendship intertwining despite all odds.
