The Dragonflies mentioned throughout this book seem to be communicating with each over. It is unknown if they work for the Terces Society or the Midnight Sun. If the Dragonflies know you know that they know you know they are listening they will attack in a similar method to the Guard Bees in Bad Magic. The Dragonflies are also responsible for The Secret Series being published. Max-Ernest never planned to publish the books and wrote them for his own amusement but the Dragonflies were able to sneak in. They had put their magical sleeping powder on his chocolate bar so he was asleep. The Dragonflies then flew the books to a publisher and that's how the book was published.
