Hiya! Yes, I am BACK!!!!! And I have found some more books, plus old ones, to review. (So that is why I am reviewing my Keeper of the Lost Cities series!)

This series is one of my favorite’s!!!!!!!!!!! Though it does have some violence in it, and there are goblins, ogres, and trolls who wave swords around a-lot… (Plus there is some “magic-y” stuff in it. The elves have powers but there isn’t really any “magic” in it. They use more of superhero like powers than magic)

Over all, I seriously suggest this book!!!!! Yes, the series has some violence but it isn’t that bad. The violence is more like Narnia/Disney and is VERY kid-friendly. I would suggest this as a teen book, but most everybody else say’s 9 an up… I will let you decide. Happy  Reading’s! -The Young Llama Reader.


  • My FAVorite series, like… EVER!!
  • Very kid-friendly.


  • Some violence…

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.

The lines between friend and enemy have blurred, and Sophie is unsure whom to 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. Every new clue seems to lead deeper into her world’s underbelly and 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.
