Ok, this is one of my favorite series and I realized I only reviewed the first one! Now I’m gonna warn you, there is a lot of violence in these books so it might be for kids 9 and up. (Also, this books more for girls… Sorry guys!)

This is book 2 in The Keeper of the Lost Cities series and I love it! There’s adventure and magic… and the girl is getting hurt by light, there are people trying to get rid of her and a magical, sparkly alicorn. Again, who wouldn’t want to read this book?

Over all, I totally suggest this book; but as always… ASK YOUR PARENTS FIRST! There is magic in the book and violence too, so make sure your parents are ok with it first. Ok? Good. Have a great day!!! -The Young Llama Reader.

  • A good book for young, teen girls.


  • There is violence

Sophie is settling in nicely to her new home and her new life in the world of the lost cities. And it helps that living at Havenfield means getting to spend time with rare, precious species—including the first female Alicorn, who shows herself to Sophie and trusts no one but her.

Sophie is tasked with helping to train the magical creature so that the Alicorn can be revealed to the people of the lost cities as a sign of hope, and Sophie wants to believe that the recent drama and anguish is gone for good.

But the secrets buried deep in Sophie’s memories remain, and before long before she’s back in incredible danger, risking everything to find the answers to questions that could save not only her life, but the life of someone close to her…
