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.

        I know, I love Shannon Messenger for writing the books, but I hate that she left us on a cliffhanger! Btw, great review!

        OMG! Sophie has many problems. Between Fitz, her boyfriend, and her search to find her biological parents, nothing goes as planned. Shannon Messenger keeps amazing me even though I'm angry at her for that last cliffhanger! Sophie is like my best friend. I understand her and follow her on her many adventures. I can't wait to find out what happened to Keefe and everything else that Mr. Forkle is hiding from Sophie, even though as he loves to say, knowledge is a dangerous thing... Hurry up, Shannon, I want the next book! :)

              I loved reading this book. There was suspense until the end. I still can't belive who Sophie Foster 's biological mom is !

                This book, Legacy, has been a very fun book to read. With about 800 pages, it made me busy in a good way. The book is about a girl, Sophie, growing up with powers. She shares many relationships with friends and they battle their enemies, a group called the Neverseen. This book has been super fun, I almost cried at the end! Make sure to read it!

                        HIYA! I read this book, and it's AWESOME! Sophie discovers many secrets, but just like Mr. Forkle said, it only complicated things. She has trouble prioritizing what she believes is more important than her personal life - for example, she is often distracted by boy problems. Can she figure out how to clean up this big mess/war and save all the species from destroying each other and themselves? Read this book and FIND OUT! I would recommend this book to people who love magic, fantasy, adventure, and books! Thanks, SHANNON MESSENGER!!!!!!!!!!! #TeamFosterKeefe4Evr
