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...

    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.

      I almost cried at this book! Sophie returned to Havenfield, her new home with her adoptive parents, but she's still not safe. She recently found an alicorn, witch reset the timeline to extinction!~ Sophie has done this nearly impossible feat with great difficulty, and she's getting a lot of praise for it. Maybe a bit too much. What if word got around? The the bad guys and Sophie's former kidnappers will want the alicorn for themselves. They will make Sophie grieve and struggle to bargain. Sophie needs to keep Silveny, the alicorn safe. How? Well, she and Keefe are the only ones who Silveny lets near her, so it might be hard! All the while Alden stuggles on his own. Seeing Prentice in Exile has broken him, and Sophie needs to fix him. To do that, Sophie must take a risk no kid should make......

            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?

                  I read this a while ago...AND I LOVE SILVENY! Won't be telling any spoilers of the future, but let me tell you this. Sparkly Alicorn droppings are awesome. I'll be wishing EVERYDAY that I can ride her.
