I am just about finished with this book and it is rushing to its conclusion like a, pardon me if you've read the book, run-away train. I hope Jaleigh Johnson has ever intention of writing more about Piper, Anna, Trimble, Jeyne, and green-eyed Gee. The Mark of the Dragonfly by Jaleigh Johnson.
Piper is an orphan in the Meteor fields of Merrick (spelling?), the northern kingdom. Her father recently died while working at King Aron's factories in Dragonfly territory to the south. Piper can fix any machine that her fellow scrappers can find after a meteor shower.
In an attempt to find a missing friend, Piper finds a strange caravan and a frightened, confused girl who bears the mark of the Dragonfly. She is protected by King Aron.
Anna, the girl, remembers very little. When a strange man arrives to claim Anna, Piper decides to take Anna to the southern capital of Noveen on the 4-0-1, a cargo train. There they meet the rest of the heroes of this book and there they embark on a series of increasingly hair-raising adventures.
Enough, I have about 70 pages to go and things just got even more hairy!
