Sophie Foster has never fit in with her classmates and family. One day, she meets Fitz, a mysterious boy who tells her that the reason she never felt at home was because she has never been at her real home. Fitz reveals the shocking truth to Sophie: she’s not actually human.
Sophie leaves her human home to go and live in the Lost Cities, also known as the elf world. She is told that an organisation called the Black Swan created her, gave her special abilities or powers (such as being able to read other’s minds, being able to speak different languages just by hearing them, and more), and hid her among the humans when she was young. What Sophie soon finds out is that the Black Swan have hidden some dark secrets in her memory, some that can change her life completely. Sophie is determined to find the Black Swan- and ask them who she really is. In the rest of the book, Sophie goes on a quest with Fitz and 3 other friends to find the Black Swan and find out her real identity.
I really liked this book. I love how the author makes chapters cliffhangers; I didn’t want to put the book down after a chapter. I have also now finished all the books up to book 6, and I have decided that this series is my favourite book of all time. I hope there will be more Keeper of the Lost Cities books coming out in the future!
For ages 10 and up.
