It was so nice knowing about all the characters especially Keefe. Awesome book!

Pretty good! But if you only want the book part, then you should skip to the back. Personally I think its a little less of a book and more of a field guide, but that's just my personal opinion and altogether I thought the book was great! (Plus the recipes were great and very fun to make. ;))
No words other than IT'S AMAZING!!!!!!!
I became a huge fan of KotLC ever since last Christmas when I started the series. Unlocked is mainly a guide to the Lost Cities which is SUPER cool. It has pictures, recipes, character records, an unbelievably long detention record by "Lord Hunkyhair" Keefe, etc. It has stories from a few different characters points of views. I would HIGHLY recommend reading it. Actually... Get the whole series it's SO COOL!!!!
Now I understand why this is book 8.5 and not book 9. It's so that we can catch up on everything! Anyway this book was incredible!! And I really like that Shannon Messenger included recipes! So far Shannon Messenger has done a splendid job in being an author, and she has done a great job in writing KOTLC! I can't wait for book 9! Hopefully it won't take Shannon Messenger too long to write book 9, and PLEASE make book 9 longer!!!
I DEFINITELY recommend Keepers Of The Lost Cities to person looked for a very intriguing series that’s IMPOSSIBLE to put down! I really like that Shannon added the comprehensive guide to the Lost Cities in the first half of Unlocked( Book 8.5) because we really needed all the details and loose ends to be tied up. And that map in the front cover is absolutely gorgeous! Also a LOT of game-changer stuff happens including Keefe and the cache (No Spoilers😉). Also this book picks up off of the cliffhanger in the end of book 8 (Legacy). I really like that it changes off from Keefe’s perspective and Sophie’s, cause it really gives you a deeper insight on the plot, story, feelings, message etc... I totally recommend anyone to start reading this series and Unlocked if they’ve read the other books! I would say that these books should probably be for readers ages 11-12, and maybe mature 10 year olds/6th grade and up! Like and follow me please! Bye!
I really like all of the Keeper series, but book 8.5 is SUPER cool. I really like all the fun activities that Shannon put in there like recipes, the registry, an Iggy coloring page, etc. I also really enjoyed how the novella was from either Sophie or Keefe’s perspective. Even though this book was kind of sad, like how seeing Keefe’s misery darkens the mood, it was also a bit humorous. It won’t leave you crying because, even if Keefe isn’t the one to lighten the mood, good thing there’s his bodyguard, Ro! And like all good books, book 8.5 is addictive so, once you start reading it it’s as if your hands and eyes are glued to it!
I like unlocked because the novella is told alternating between Sophie and keefe's point of view. I recomend reading unlocked
I loved this... I think that the recipes and quizzes are super cool, I haven't tried the recipes though. Anyone else?? The pictures were beautiful, I wish there was more of Fitz though 😏 Sophie is so beautiful and Keefe is very handsome 😉 I think that all the extras were great, but I wish there was more of the story included. The story was good, and it really made me look at things differently. I thought Fitzphie was the best thing ever, but after they *spoiler alert haha* broke up, I realized how much Sophie needed Keefe in her life. And reading from Keefe's perspective, I realized just how much he liked her... My heart broke when he asked her to leave, but I think we all know it was for the best. I wish it hadn't hurt both of them so much. And when he left that note... My heart broke again. Grady was such a good dad in that scene, I just wish we could have seen what happened afterward Sophie got it!! Shannon Messenger, hurry up!! We need book 9!! One of my favorite parts was when they opened Oralie's cache, it was so heartwarming to see her and Kenric together but once again, my heart broke. They loved each other so much!!! And imagine if they had gotten married... 🥰 Honestly I should probably stop acting like this was all real and I know these people, but I feel like I do!! Shannon Messenger did an AMAZING job I just wish she could write faster... I can't wait for book 9!!
It's really good. I'd recommend it to anybody!!
