Edgin Darvis’ life is a mess. All that he has left are his lute, his dashing good looks, and not much else. After a chance encounter with badass bruiser Holga, Edgin is forced to take a hard look at his bad choices. But the road to redemption is long, and paved with unforeseen expenses. Fortunately, the world is full of rich fools begging to be parted from their money. And so Edgin and Holga do what any sensible entrepreneurs would do -- they form a crew. Joined by a charming rogue, Forge Fitzwilliam, and Simon, a sorcerer with an intense inferiority complex, the team sets out to line their pockets with both well-earned and ill-gotten gold. Together, Edgin’s crew battles monsters across the realms: gnoll raiders, fey witches, and more fall beneath their sharp weapons and sharper wit. But when they encounter a new, more sophisticated villain, keen blades and piercing blue eyes may not be enough.… (més)

Quest to the Uncharted Land was such a great book, I love it so much! From the great family bond, as they did not fight, to the gift of acceptance. Also, the fact that home isn't necessarily a specific place, but where the people that care about you are. Jaleigh Johnson is an awesome author and in this, her third book, I found myself enjoying it just as much as with the first two books. I know that this is the last book in the Solace series (2024), though I truly hope one day she will write another book or two if we are all very lucky, and we can go to the curious land of Solace again.

I recommend the Solace series to people that like strong independent main characters, who love trips to find unseen things and mysterious lands and who like stories that make them think. I'm happy we have them in our home library. Thank you Jaleigh Johnson. I really hope one day we can go back to Solace with you.

*Credit to my husband for finding this series, he always find the best books -smile-

Other notes:

*The books are also beautiful, especially the hard cover books (under the dust jacket), which are some of our family favorite covers.

*I recommended this series to our public library. They acquired all three books so hopefully others can enjoy this great series.

*Comfortable read, good for dyslexic readers (from the point of veiw of an adult with dyslexia)

Reading this book gave me a heavy sense of deja vu which means I have either read the book before and don't remember or it was very similar to something else I had read. Either way, not one of my favorites.

Piper is a scrapper; she collects metal and anything the meteor storms bring so she can sell them to make money for food and shelter. She’s been all alone since her father died working in a factory. When Piper goes out one night, to rescue a friend who shouldn’t be out in the meteor storm, she stumbles upon a caravan and a girl who seems injured and barely alive. Under Piper’s care the girl comes back to life and doesn’t seem to remember who she is or where she’s from. But she has the Mark of the Dragonfly, which means she is under the king’s protection. Only very important people have the tattoo. When a strange man comes to Piper’s house asking for Anna things become more complicated. Anna is terrified of the man and keeps calling him the wolf. With some tricky maneuvering Anna and Piper make an escape and hop aboard the 401 train. Piper figures if she can get Anna back to the king she may get a reward that will give her enough to live on for the rest of her life. The security guard, G, nearly throws them off the train, but is stopped by the sight of Anna’s tattoo. They’re allowed to stay on the train. But their struggles aren’t over and the dangers are real. From people trying to kidnap them to the strange man hot on their heels, things have more twists and turns than Piper ever could’ve thought possible. Will Piper and Anna be able to out run the man? Will Anna ever remember who she is? And how will Piper deal with everything when she finds out the truth about Anna?

I have had The Mark of the Dragonfly by Jaleigh Johnson on my list of books to read for a long time! I am so glad I finally got to it because it was a fantasy story that I absolutely loved. The world Piper lives in is filled with interesting beings and magic. The adventure made the story exciting and I never knew exactly what to expect. I really liked Piper because she had a good heart and gave people a chance. I could easily see why Piper wanted to take care of Anna and their bond was very sweet. I liked seeing how G and Piper developed a respect for each other and a deep friendship. It was a unique blend of items and ideas from long ago, ones from present times, and things from the future as well. I would recommend this book to people in fourth grade and up who enjoy fantasy, dystopian, adventure, and a little sci-fi as well. This is the first book in the trilogy, and now I know I’ll be looking for the second and third book! I can’t wait to see what new adventures await them.
