Keeper of the Lost Cities Summary

Keeper of the Lost Cities - A New York Times bestselling series
A USA TODAY bestselling series
A California Young Reader Medal–winning series

In this riveting series opener, a telepathic girl must figure out why she is the key to her brand-new world before the wrong person finds the answer first.

Twelve-year-old Sophie has never quite fit into her life. She’s skipped multiple grades and doesn’t really connect with the older kids at school, but she’s not comfortable with her family, either. The reason? Sophie’s a Telepath, someone who can read minds. No one knows her secret—at least, that’s what she thinks…

But the day Sophie meets Fitz, a mysterious (and adorable) boy, she learns she’s not alone. He’s a Telepath too, and it turns out the reason she has never felt at home is that, well…she isn’t. Fitz opens Sophie’s eyes to a shocking truth, and she is forced to leave behind her family for a new life in a place that is vastly different from what she has ever known.

But Sophie still has secrets, and they’re buried deep in her memory for good reason: The answers are dangerous and in high-demand. What is her true identity, and why was she hidden among humans? The truth could mean life or death—and time is running out.

Keeper of the Lost Cities Review

  • AMAZING, READ IT NOW!!!!! (Please read, if you don’t mind spoilers/already read the book)

    By Callie Sencen
    There are no words to describe how awesome this book is. Whenever a situation comes up, you can feel the emotions as if you were in the situation yourself. I ship SoKeefe, and if you ship Sophitz, you are a NO-BRAINER. JK, but if you do ship Sophitz, please change your ship to SoKeefe!!! This book is about twelve-year-old Sophie Foster, living in San Diego. Sophie is not your average teen—she has a photographic memory, skipped multiple grades, and can hear people’s thoughts. She can’t block them. It’s like a hundred TVs blaring loud noise at the same time—it’s stressful, confusing, and gives her a headache. It started when she was five years old, when she hit her head and woke up in the hospital. She doesn’t know how to describe it to anyone. She’s an outcast, a freak...until she meets Fitz, a (cute) boy who can also read minds. He shows her the truth: she’s an elf, and she doesn’t belong in San Diego. Before long, Sophie is forced to leave her family behind and start a new life in the Lost Cities, the world where elves live. She meets new, supportive friends and is placed with a kind family who lost their biological daughter, but she knows she will always be different, for many reasons. 1) Her eyes are brown, unlike all the other elves’ blue eyes. 2) She doesn’t know who her true parents are. 3) She manifested her telepathy at such a young age. Sophie needs answers, which she eventually receives—but not in the way she’d wanted. She might have to get kidnapped, get lost in Paris, and put both her life and her best friend Dex’s life on the line to start discovering who she truly is. Thanks for reading my review, now go read the book yourself, if you haven’t already! Five stars all the way.
  • If you ship fitzphie then finish the series first!

    MIGHT CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN’T FINISHED KOTLC! I like Fitz and all (Sometimes) But if he and Sophie got into a relationship then I feel like Fitz would be the emotionally abusive boyfriend because if you’ve seen him during the books, he yelled at Sophie for things she couldn’t help and that’s why I ship her with keefe. Keefe supports her through everything and she always comes to him for advice to because she feels comfortable with him. SOKEEFE 4 EVAAAAAA!!!
  • LOVE IT!!!

    This is hands down the best book series I’ve EVER read! Them Foster-Keefe for life! Keefe is just:😍🥹🥵. These are Fantasy, romance a little, partly action, WELL WRITTEN, GREAT PLOT! Not cheesy AT ALLLLL. I’m obsessed 😍. I’m over halfway through flashback (book 7th). I read book 2 in 4 days. The 3rd in 4 days. The 4th in 4 days and the 5th and 6th. (I would be done with the 7th already but I’m moving). That just shows you how good these books are;) they are amazing not exaggerating. I’ve never read Harry Potter but every seems to say it’s better. Try these. YOU WONT REGRET IT! Thanks Shannon!
  • Best book series

    By unicorngirl45
    I love these books so much because they just get me. sophie kinda gets me in a way most people don’t. I am really rooting for an lgbtq main character relationship, but that probably won’t happen. 😭🏳️‍🌈 i am lgbtq and i really want that to be represented in the books. mostly repping dex and fitz! overall i really love these books and i’m excited for the next one to come out!
  • loved it!!!

    By seventh daughter
    Should totally write a book or a whole series from keefe’s point of view. I’ve read all the book in a matter of days it was that good. I’m totally team Foster-Keefe.
