Ok, Keeper of the Lost Cities is one of my favorite series!!!!! It has everything!!!! The action, adventure, magic (of sorts), humor, and is over all, just an amazing series!!!!!! (I really like these books… a lot…)

The books are about elves who have powers/magic of sorts. (There more like superpowers than magic) And they are fighting against the Neverseen, a organization that wants to destroy humans….I think… (The books are almost mystery as well. Finding out the bad guys plot is HARD!)

They are very clean books, but there is some weird shadows in them… One of the characters is a Shade wich means he can control shadows and such. Including the weird shadows that make spears and arrows that… puncture… people… (It is still kid-friendly, but maybe more of pre-teen. 8-12)

Over all, I HIGHLY and TOTALLY suggest this series!!!! This is such a good series for girls who are looking for a magical adventure full of funny characters! I hope this review was helpful. -The Young Llama Reader.

Illusions shatter—and Sophie and her friends face impossible choices—in this astonishing eighth book in the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling Keeper of the Lost Cities series.

Sophie Foster wants answers. But after a lifetime of lies, sometimes the truth is the most dangerous discovery. Even the smallest secret comes with terrifying new responsibilities.

And Sophie’s not the only one with blank spots in her past, or mysteries surrounding her family. She and her friends are part of something much bigger than they imagined—and their roles have already been chosen for them.

Every clue drags them deeper into the conspiracy. Every memory forces them to question everything—especially one another. And the harder they fight, the more the lines blur between friend and enemy.
