What a fascinating introduction into steampunk fantasy for any age! The Mark of the Dragonfly is a compelling story that will capture your attention from the very first page.
After her father's death, Piper is now alone in a very harsh world. It will take all the skills Piper has learned from her father, and a few she has developed herself, to survive. In the meteor fields, Piper discovers an unconscious girl. How can Piper help her when she can barely take care of herself? The girl, Anna, has no memories of where she is from or of her family. A mysterious man knocks at Piper's door looking for Anna. At first, Piper is relieved, but seeing the fear in Anna's eyes at the sight of him changes her mind. Piper knows they will have to run for their lives. The 401 train is their only hope to escape. Will Piper and Anna make it on the train? What other obstacles await them?
This is a well written story with interesting and diverse characters. It is an action-packed adventure that is not just a story of good and evil, but of acceptance, love and helping others. I enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it.
