The Lost Kingdom by Matthew Kirby
In general tone this book is similar to Boundless which I also read recently but nowhere near as engaging. Although both are set in the past and are nearly historical fiction except for a few magical things, this one read much more like actual historical fiction without the fun of Boundless. I was also highly distracted by Billy's father's prejudice. I know there was supposed to be a point to it and that it highlighted how Billy is different from his dad but it just felt like unnecessary racism as his father complained about the Indians again and again.
