The Secrets of Solace

by Jaleigh Johnson

From Jaleigh Johnson, the author of The Mark of the Dragonfly, The Secrets of Solace is another action-packed middle grade adventure about bravery and friendship.

In a world of secrets, adventure lies around every corner. And danger lives in every new friend.

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 studying the objects that mysteriously fall from the sky in the Scrap Towns.

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 strongholds are vast and old, with twisting paths, forgotten rooms, and collapsed chambers.

And in one of the forgotten chambers, Lina discovers a secret.

Hidden deep in the caverns 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.

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.
