Sophie battles the rebels—and recovers dark memories from her past—in this jaw-dropping fourth book in the bestselling Keeper of the Lost Cities series.

Sophie Foster is on the run—but at least she's not alone.

Her closest friends from the Lost Cities have gone with her to join the Black Swan. They still have doubts about the shadowy organization, but the only way to find answers is to start working with them. And as they settle into their new lives, they uncover secrets bigger than anything they’d imagined.

But their enemies are far from done, and unleash a terrifying plague that threatens the safety of an entire species. Sophie and her friends fight with everything they have—with new allies joining them—but every choice has consequences. And trusting the wrong person could prove deadly.

In this game-changing fourth book in the Keeper of the Lost Cities series, Sophie must question everything to find a truth that will either save her world—or shatter it.

      This is the fourth book in the "Keeper of the Lost Cities" series. It is sooooooo good!!! There's not even enough words to describe how amazing it is! Summary: Sophie Foster, Fitz and Biana Vacker, Dex Dizznee and Keefe Sencen have to leave and go into hiding before they get in troubke with the council. They go to an orginization called the Black Swan, which created project moonlark, the project made it so Sophie had all these amazing powers! They end up joining, and training really hard. They also rescue someone from exile, and alot of stuff goes wrong. They all get expelled, and have to go to exillium for school, where they meet two new friends! Alot of things go wrong, but in the end it all comes together and things even start getting better than they were before! This book can teach us that working together is usually better then working alone, and that can accomplish so much more together! 5 stars from me! It was awesome!

        Have you ever heard of something called Panakes? Panakes help heal a wound if you eat the petals or put it on the wound. In the book there is only one way to get Panackes. Panackes are a fictional tree related to the Keeper Of The Lost Cities. The way to get Panackes was by a gnome Sophie met when she was joining the Black Swan. When Sophie swears an oath that she would be joining the Black Swan she discovers that Mr. Forkleis also Sir Astin. She also learns Mr. Forkle has other identities like Magnate Leto. Sophie and her friends get banned because the council thought the Black Swan was their enemy and during the time Sophie and her friends decided to join the Black Swan. While Sophie and her friends were with the Black Swan they went to Exullim. Sophie and Biana went to go and investigate about the plague the gnomes were getting. She found out that one tree was staying healthy and the Neverseen was guarding it. During their Exilim training Sophie meets twins. They helped Sophie and became good friends. They joined the Black Swan and they were trying to cure the plague and used Fitz 'brother as a guide because he knew it the best. When they stole the “cure” they made a quick escape and this turned out to be the Neverseen’s plan. After they escaped from that Calla realized that the only way to get Panackes is when a gnome sacrifice themselves and turn into a Panackes tree. What I liked about the book is that Messenger makes a huge twist by making Alvar part of the Neverseen. I think the theme for this book is “trust your instincts”. I think that is the theme because when Alvar Fitzs brother didn’t let Tam read his Shadow vapor. Tam thought it was suspicious. Later they learn that what Alvar was hiding is that he was part of the Neverseen. Important characters in the book include Sophie Foster and her friends. Sophie is a girl who is good at everything but she would take life risking things to destroy the Neverseen. Fitz always tries to stay by Sophie’s side; they are cognates. He wants to Destroy the Neverseen because his brother betrayed him. Dex is a technopath and has been helping the Black Swan build things. The Elvin world is set apart from the human world because they went against the treaty they signed with the Councilors. The Elvin world is very sparkly and everyone is born with a birth fund. Something that can be improved is that when Fintan built a wall of Everbalze around them why couldn’t Tam cover them because of the black fog so it looked like they were gone. I would give this 5 stars despite the part that can be improved. I would recommend this to fourth graders and up because this book series so far has a lot of violence. Neverseen was a good book and I really enjoyed it and it was really breathtaking what they did in this book.

                    “You never know who you can trust.” Sophie Foster knows what she should do next. She has finally discovered where she belongs in her new home, the Lost Cities...and she’s off to join the Black Swan, a secretive group of rebels who shouldn’t exist but do. Sophie’s nervous. But luckily, she’s not alone, because her friends Biana, Fitz, Keefe, and Dex are coming with her. When the Black Swan welcomes them, the five friends are excited. But their enemies, called the Neverseen, are still out there—out for revenge. When the Neverseen create a plague that threatens everyone, it’s up to Sophie to stop them...once and for all. Can she, Keefe, Biana, Dex, and Fitz save the day? Read this book to find out! I absolutely loved this book, and I think every reader, every Keeper of the Lost Cities fan, will adore the fourth book in this series. Get ready to dive into Shannon Messenger’s awesome world of adventure, amazing heroes, and more! I rate this 4/5 stars, and I recommend Neverseen for anyone who wants a good book to read.
