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.

    Sophie Foster has a plan. She and her friends are joining forces with the black swan- illegally. As they begin training they find a lead to one of the neverseen's members, and in order to investigate they have to go to Exilium, a school for outcasts. But the Neverseen still have plans, and they unleash a plague that could wipe out an entire race. Will Sophie and her friends be able to steal the cure from Dimitar, king of the Ogres? Or will a close friend have to make the ultimate sacrifice to save her kind?

      This book was AWESOME! Sophie and her friends are joining the Black swan and things happen! There’s a plague that’s spreading and there’s Prenice rescuing, and much other stuff! This book kept me reading on and on and there were so many “oh my gosh!” Moments. I highly recommended this book to anyone who loves action and adventure.

          Sophie and her friends are joining the Black Swan, the group that created Sophie! More suspense than ever in this fourth book of the series. Don't stop reading until you're at the end of the entire series!

            This is soooooooo amazing. It's actually my favorite of all of them so far. Joining the black swan really got me jumping. Sophie, Fitz, Biana, Dex, and Keefe (and Della), go of on the most awesome adventure ever! They are hilarious in the furry pj's to mention that.
