Sophie befriends the mythical Alicorn--and puts her mysterious powers to the test--in this enchanting sequel to Keeper of the Lost Cities.
Sophie is settling in nicely to her new home and her new life in the world of the lost cities. And it helps that living at Havenfield means getting to spend time with rare, precious species--including the first female Alicorn, who shows herself to Sophie and trusts no one but her.

Sophie is tasked with helping to train the magical creature so that the Alicorn can be revealed to the people of the lost cities as a sign of hope, and Sophie wants to believe that the recent drama and anguish is gone for good.

But the secrets buried deep in Sophie's memories remain, and before long she's back in incredible danger, risking everything to find the answers to questions that could save not only her life, but the life of someone close to her...

        alden's mind break made me so sad, and fitz' anger issues don't really improve throughout the series. sophie and keefe actually become closer in this book and you can tell that he reallllly likes her, which is adorable. I'm very glad that he went with sophie to get her abilities healed.

            This book was good. Sophie finds a unicorn! She makes friends with it and can read it's mind. Meanwhile, she's dealing with her powers and headaches. Someone could fix her powers for good, except... maybe they're the enemy? I give this book 3 stars.

Sophie finds something incredible, something so good that it resets the timeline to extinction. But that's exactly why the Bad guys strike again. After all, they don't want anyone to be happy, s they have another target, the new female alicorn, the one Sophie found. Will Sophie be able to keep the alicorn safe, and will Alden, who is struggling with guilt, recover soon? Alden is finding it hard to have to do anything with Wylie or Prentice. He is feeling guilty, and the pressure just gets worse......

                  After the perilous adventure she just went through, Sophie Foster thought it would be over. She has friends now, and a loving family. But things just don't want to go Sophie's way. After finding a new friend, and the first female Alicorn in nearly a century, evil strikes again. Sophie's kidnappers are still out there, and they're hungry for revenge. But one question still hangs in the air. Who are her kidnappers? Could there be betrayals? Are they... her friends? Is Sophie broken? With someone close to her suffering, Sophie Foster doesn't know what to do. And in a world like this, everything could be at stake. Shannon Messenger, an amazing author, has made a wonderful spin-off, and mixes all the right components onto this book. There's fantasy, magic, powers, friendship, evil, and of course, a beautifully crafted love story.

                    Sophie Foster thought that life would be back to normal- but its not. Now she has a deadline for training the last female Alicorn on the planet, Sliveny, who is the last hope for the Alicorn race, and an unexpected target of unknown enemies (no pressure). Why do Sophie's kidnappers want to capture Silveny so bad, and even worse, why are Sophie's powers not working? Is she broken? And if so, will she ever be fixed?
