As many of you know, I am a HUGE Christy Miller/Robin Jones Gunn fan. But recently I’ve kinda switched over from Christy being my number #1 read. I found out about the Keeper of the Lost Cities series by Shannon Messenger , and my whole reading life has changed!
I’m usually not a fan of the whole fantasy genre, but this is so far one of the best series I’ve ever encountered! (And that’s saying a lot!) This series is about a 12 year old girl named Sophie Foster who, since she was five years old, has been a Telepath. She can read minds! Sophie lives with her parents and sister who don’t know anything about her ability. Sophie is super smart, and is in College Level classes at school.
Then one day, Sophie meets a boy named Fitz, and I won’t spoil it for you, but she finds out that she’s not who she thought she was and her whole life is changed forever!! But, is does include a lot of adventure, surprise, and maybe even a three way love triangle. 😉 This is a fantastic family series!
Also, these books are pretty big! They range around 800 pages with over 75 chapters. And there’s 7 of them! In order, they’re Keeper (Shown above) Exile, Everblaze, Neverseen, Lodestar, Nightfall, and Flashback. Pretty cool names, right??
By the way, Sophie is just about the most awesome and most interesting person you could ever imagine. You’ll definitely love her!! Oh, and yesterday I found out yesterday that the author of this amazing series, Shannon Messenger, actually lives in my town!! Crazy, right??
Well, I definitely hope that all of you try out this series. It’s the best!!
