The Secrets of SolaceBook - 2016
"From Jaleigh Johnson, the acclaimed author of The Mark of the Dragonfly, comes another thrilling adventure in the magical world of Solace. aaa Lina Winterbock lives in the mountain strongholds of Solace. She's an apprentice to the archivists, the wise men and women whose lives are dedicated to cataloging, studying, and preserving the objects that mysteriously fall from the sky in the scrap towns. aaa Lina should be spending her days with books, but the Iron War has changed everything. The strongholds are now a refuge, and the people Lina once counted on no longer have time for her, so she spends her days exploring the hidden tunnels and passages of her home. The strongholds are vast and old, with twisting paths, forgotten rooms, and collapsed chambers, some of them containing objects that have been lost and forgotten even by the archivists. aaa And in one of the forgotten chambers, Lina discovers a secret. aaa Hidden deep in a cavern is a half-buried airship like nothing she has ever seen before. She's determined to dig it out and restore it. But Lina needs help, and she doesn't know anyone she can trust with her secret. aaa Then she meets Ozben, a mysterious boy who has a secret of his own-a secret that's so dangerous it could change the course of the Iron War and the world of Solace forever. a Praise for The Mark of the Dragonfly - a ( STAR ) oThis magnetic middle-grade debut . . .
