Happy Book Birthday to Jaleigh Johnson!

SecretsOfSolace-CoverPlease help us celebrate with Jaleigh Johnson whose second middle grade fantasy releases today!!! THE SECRETS OF SOLACE is a stand alone adventure set in the world of Solace introduced in spring 2014 with THE MARK OF THE DRAGONFLY.

Kirkus says of SOLACE, “All aboard for fantasy lovers with a dual penchant for girl power and keeping up with the Indiana Joneses.”

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 cataloging, studying, and preserving 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 hidden tunnels and passages of her home. The strongholds are vast and old, with twisting paths, forgotten rooms, and collapsed chambers, some of them containing objects that have been lost and forgotten even by the archivists.

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

Hidden deep in a cavern 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.

Huge congratulations Jaleigh and happy reading to everyone!
