2014 год. Listening Library Piper lives in a world where the veil into others is thin. Meteor storms rain down objects from other lands, which Piper and her neighbors gather and sell to the rich citizens of the Dragonfly territories. Scavenging these strange odds and ends is the only way to make money in the outer provinces. Piper is good at gathering debris from the storms, but it's dangerous. And one day proof of just how dangerous is lying amongst the rubble of her carriage, unconscious. The girl is beautiful and well dressed, and the dragonfly marking on her wrist confirms that she is the most valuable thing Piper's ever stumbled onto. But people don't leave valuables in the wastelands, so Piper takes her home. It's who comes for the mysterious girl that begins a journey that will change both of their lives forever.
