Keeper of the Lost Cities 2

Author: Shannon Messenger
Pages: 571 pgs
Genre: MG, Fantasy

Review Source: Author/Publisher

Sophie Foster thought she was safe. Settled into her home at Havenfield, surrounded by friends, and using her unique telepathic abilities to train Silveny--the first female alicorn ever seen in the Lost Cities--her life finally seems to be coming together.

But Sophie's kidnappers are still out there. And when Sophie discovers new messages and clues from the mysterious Black Swan group, she’s forced to take a terrifying risk—one that puts everyone in incredible danger.

As long buried secrets rise to the surface, it’s once again up to Sophie to uncover hidden memories—before someone close to her is lost forever.

In this second book in the Keeper of the Lost Cities series, Sophie must journey to the darkest corners of her luminous world in a sequel that will leave you breathless for more.
I received an ARC of this book when Shannon was on tour with a few other authors for the release of Let the Sky Fall. I was beyond excited to get my hands on a copy so early and couldn't wait to delve right in.

From the moment I started the first book, I absolutely adored Sophie. She was so cute and a lot of fun to read. And it was the exact same with this second book. I loved getting to see more of Sophie and her really getting used to being in the elf world.

The results of the events that took place near the end of Keeper 1 have carried over into Exile and it was so interesting to watch it unfold. For Sophie and those around her. No one quite knew what to make of her struggles throughout the story, including Sophie, and we got to see different sides of some of our favorite characters including Fitz and Keefe.

I definitely can't wait for the next book in this series ( and I'm crossing my fingers that there might be more books for these kids). The world Shannon has created for us, the characters, the rich plot, it's all combined into such a fascinating read that I hope everyone will enjoy!
