Fans of The City of Ember will love The Mark of the Dragonfly, an adventure story set in a magical world that is both
exciting and dangerous.
Piper lives in a
world where the veil into others is thin. Meteor storms rain down objects from
other lands, which Piper and her neighbors gather and sell to the rich citizens
of the Dragonfly Territories. Scavenging these strange odds and ends is the
only way to make money in the outer provinces.
Piper has never seen the Mark of the Dragonfly
until she finds a girl amid the wreckage of a caravan in the Meteor Fields.
The girl doesn’t remember a thing about her life,
but the intricate tattoo on her arm is proof that she’s from the Dragonfly
Territories and that she’s protected by the king. That means a reward for
Piper if she can get the girl home.
The one sure way to the Territories is the 401, a
great old beauty of a train. But a ticket costs more coin than Piper could make
in a year. And stowing away is a difficult prospect as everyone knows that getting
past the peculiar green-eyed boy who stands guard is nearly impossible.
Life for Piper just turned dangerous, a little
bit magical, and very exciting—if she can manage to survive the journey. Download and start listening now!
