Sophie uncovers shocking secrets—and faces treacherous new enemies—in this electrifying third book in the Keeper of the Lost Cities series.

Sophie Foster is ready to fight back.

Her talents are getting stronger, and with the elusive Black Swan group ignoring her calls for help, she’s determined to find her kidnappers—before they come after her again.

But a daring mistake leaves her world teetering on the edge of war, and causes many to fear that she has finally gone too far. And the deeper Sophie searches, the farther the conspiracy stretches, proving that her most dangerous enemy might be closer than she realizes.

In this nail-biting third book in the Keeper of the Lost Cities series, Sophie must fight the flames of rebellion, before they destroy everyone and everything she loves.

      SPOILERS ARE IN THIS PARAGRAPH!!!! I love this book . It is a very exciting , epic , page-turning story . I would like to say I knew Keefe Sencen would join the Neverseen , but I totally did not see that coming!! Shannon Messenger does an excellent job , making you get attached to the characters and making them feel alive . She also does a good job of making you want to read the next book in the series using astounding cliffhangers!

          Sophie Foster has finally understood. She has to fight. For her family, for her friends, for her life.I read the whole series and recommend it more than ever. Nobody can understand how much I love Keepers of the lost cities.,I read it and reread it again and again, adventure, strong friendship and suspense are more than there in the third book of the series.

            Sophie knows that it seems like they're fighting a losing battle. But it's the little victories that count. They have to. Otherwise they've lost. She has to fight back. Sophie and her friends know the victories they've made are small. Really small. But they look even smaller when her captors take away everything- even the people she loves. As Sophie grieves she realizes that her friends are more capable than she thought. Together they're more powerful than they thought. They just have to keep fighting. If you like action, romance, or mystery than its for you because its all of those. Rated five stars for sure.

                      They left us on a cliffhanger. I wonder what will happen when they join the Black Swan.
