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

    It is THE BEST BOOK SERIES EVER!!!! Shannon did an amazing job! Some people say it’s a rip off Harry Potter. HARRY POTTER IS THE RIP OFF! I HATE Harry Potter! That’s putting it MILDLY! HARRY POTTER IS JUNK! READ THIS INSTEAD! Anyways, I’m a sokeefe shipper because fitz is a jerk. And Keefe is just wayyyy better! If ur reading this review and have not read the book, go buy it! TRUST ME! BUT READ THE SERIES SLOWLY, BECAUSE OTHERWISE, YOU WILL BE LEFT ON A DEADLY CLIFFHANGER!!!!!!!
  • Love it, but it’s not Harry Potter

    By Zoom#77😁
    Ya’ll make me made sometimes. First of all, Harry Potter is not “cheap.” And no, this is not an HP rip off. It’s nothing like Harry Potter. And by the way, now is the time to stop reading if you haven’t read this book yet. It’s fantastic though, really gets you sad and happy, something only a great author can do. There’s many books and each are long, rollercoaster. Anyway! Sure, there’s a magic school and a kid knows nothing about it. The differences, you ask? In HP, a lot of kids are semi clueless. And the magic is so different! There are no wands, logical explanations, and SOME people have specific powers/abilities. Oh, and I forgot to mention the fact that witches and wizards are HUMAN. Jeez. Anyway, that’s my review! 😊

    Camo_Queen9198, I agree with you completely! The genres are: Mystery Drama Romance Laughter I love the KOTLC series! SAYIN THAT IS PUTTING IT MILDLY. I AM A KOTLC FAN TO THE CORE!! My fav characters are Sophie and Biana. I like keefe and Sophie when they’re together. Go team foster-keefe! Specifics: -this book would probably be for ages 9+ because it’s pretty big and hard. Also romance isn’t the best choice for younger kids. -I love the story! My niece (7 years old) thinks she’s a Telepath and a Vanisher now! -This is for you, Shannon Messenger: Can you do a book from Keefe’s perspective? Also, can Sophie and Fitz get married in your next book? NOT GET MARRIED. EVER. EVER. EVER. IF ANYTHING MAKE SOOHIE GET MARRIED TO KEEFE. Pls make sure to say tuned for more ReviewQueen👑 reviews! If you see one of my reviews somewhere, review the same book and say that you read my review! Also- read the series. Slowly. Or you will be left on a poisonous cliffhanger....

    Good book for kids around Sophie’s age, a splash of science and fantasy in a cool mix that has you at the edge of your seat, More throwing up is suggested Vegan friendly, Perfect for Harry Potter fans, Turns kids into oracles!

    By Luna_Birdsong_KOTLC
    I love the book. There. I said it. Now to review it. Okay so a lot of people say it’s a Cheap Harry Potter. Harry Potter is the cheap book. I really like this book the characters have inspired me in so many ways and have taught me to be more self confident. I like how its written casually and not over the top. Also please note that my real name means Elizabeth in another language. Also I’m glad Shannon won’t pair Sophie up with a BF. (I saw her on a book tour and she said Sophie would always be single)
  • Love it!!!!

    I have read all the keeper of the lost cities books to lodestar, and it was joy to come back and re-read this one. I can’t wait untilI can get book six, and I look forward to reading them all. Thank you, Shannon Messenger for bringing this epic series into the forbidden cities.

    By Gbirdgamer#0
    To start, THIS BOOK IS AMAAAZZZZZIIINGGGGGG!!!!! And if you haven’t read it yet, stop reading this review cause I kinda spoil a little bit!!😉 Okay, so, what I don’t get is why Sophie likes Fitz over Keefe. He is much cuter, funnier, and obviously likes Sophie a lot more! But other than that, this is better than Harry Potter! I seriously recommend!
