Skybreaker - Kenneth Oppel Set on an Earth very like ours (they do have a Mona Lisa and an Eiffel Tower), but slightly behind us technologically and with some different biology (particularly creatures of the air), Oppel, Kenneth's Young Adult series is still highly entertaining to this adult. It does require a pretty extensive suspension of disbelief, though, to believe that pedal powered ornithopters and Icarus wings can work.
