Publisher's Summary

A New York Times best-selling series 

A USA TODAY best-selling series 

A California Young Reader Medal - winning series  

Dark schemes unfold - and Sophie’s loyalty is pushed to the limit - in this thrilling fifth book in the New York Times and USA TODAY best-selling Keeper of the Lost Cities series.  

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 Swans 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.

IT JUST KEEPS GETTING BETTER

OK so the deeper the plot the more unexpected the twists, the more excitement that gets thrown in your face, it is hard for me to remember this is written for teens and pre teens. sure, predictable at some level but some of this is kinda heavy-emotionally. But then again, find me one teenager with no drama! good book will continue with the series

Not the best installment

Sadly, I didn't think this book was quite as good as the previous two. The first 70 procent felt like we were constantly on the precipice of things going down, the ending was very explosive and it makes me want to read the next one right away.

Sophie and the gang are trying to find out what the Lodestar Initiative is, what they want and how they can stop them. It's hard to say more about the plot without spoiling the previous books, but this book felt a bit like a filler bok to me. Yet, I enjoyed the charcters, the revelations and the world that's never what you think it's going to be

The narration by Catlin Kelly was great as always, she has the kind of voice that's still pleasing at 1,75 speed which is always nice. She also manages to do very distinctive voices for every peron, which is quite a feat considering the very large world painted in here
