Keeper of the Lost Cities series: Book Five
Sophie Foster is back in the Lost Cities--but the Lost Cities have changed. The threat of war hangs heavy over her glittering world. And the Neverseen are wreaking havoc wherever they can.
The lines between friend and enemy have also blurred, and Sophie is unsure exactly whom she can trust. But when she's warned that the people she loves most will be the next victims, she knows she has to act.
A mysterious symbol could be the key--if only she knew how to translate it. And each new clue reveals how far the dark schemes spread. The Black Swan aren't the only ones who have plans. The Neverseen have their own Initiative, and if Sophie doesn't stop it, they might finally have the ultimate means to control her.
I'm so glad I finally was able to read this, since the last book left on a cliffhanger. It was just as good as the other books, which rarely ever happens in a series.
Sophie has to trust Keefe, who pretended to go against her with the enemy to be a sort of double-agent. However, if the enemy finds out, they have the means to kill him slowly and painfully. (spoiler) Mr. Forkle dies and her human parents were taken by the enemy. Her human sister somehow remembers her. Then the book ends. On another cliffhanger. (end spoiler) The author really does like making us wait with impatience for the next book, which I hope will come out sometime this year.
In conclusion, this was another amazing book by Shannon Messenger that I totally recommend.
My Rating: 5 stars
