EEEEKKKKKK!!!!!! I am soooooo excited!!!! I ADORE the Keeper of the Lost Cities series, so when I heard about this book I was exhilarated!!!!!!! (I mean, I marked the release date on my calendar, I counted down the days till it was released!!!! And I got it the DAY OF it’s release. I am a big fan.)

This book is COMPLETELY different than all of the previous books! It’s filled with art, activities, quizzes, guides to the world and characters and is my NEW FAV of the series!!!! (Plus there is a small 200 paged novel in the back that goes back in forth with Sophie and Keefe’s perspectives. (And Keefe’s my favorite character, so yeah. This is my favorite book; get over it. 🙂 )

Now there is some magic; the series is about elves, who each have a special ability. And they travel through light, live with unicorns and dinosaurs. And there are also gnomes, ogres and trolls. (But the magic isn’t like fairies or spells. More like superheros. Weird right.) And, there is violence in the series…. Lots of broken bones, people…burning. (Bleh!) Stabbings, shootings, and other lovely stuff. It is kind-of described, but not really. (If that makes sense…)

Over all, READ IT!!!!! This is a great series for girl 9 and up! (And Maybe boys…maybe?) I TOTALLY suggest it and I hope you all have a Covid-19 free day! -The Young Llama Reader.


  • My all time favorite series!!!!!!!!!
  • A very clean book for kids and teens!!!!!!!!!!


  • Some violence….
  • Magic

In this extra special installment of the Keeper of the Lost Cities series, the story picks up right from Legacy’s particularly devastating cliffhanger. But chapters alternate between Sophie and Keefe’s perspectives to give readers deeper insights into both beloved characters. New powers will be discovered. Hard truths from the past will come to light. And all of your favorite characters will find themselves tested in ways they never imagined.

And that’s not all!

Unlocked also includes a comprehensive guide to the world of the Lost Cities, featuring new character and world details that have never been revealed before—plus fun bonuses like Keeper-themed recipes, a detailed map of the Lost Cities, gorgeous full-color illustrations, and so much more!
