I hope you’ll join me for a fun read-along of The Keeper of the Lost Cities this summer! The Keeper of the Lost Cities series offers readers everything you’d want in a book series: adventure, characters you’ll love, magic, mystery, romance, and suspense.
My oldest daughter recommended this book to me when she was about 10 years old– which made me immediately want to read it. (Because you know it’s going to be good when your reluctant reader tells you that she loves a book.)
And it was amazing! I stayed up all night to finish book one. Because the story is a non-stop, compelling fantasy adventure that I couldn’t put down.
Plus, the best thing to tell you is that ALL the books in the series are as well-written and engaging as the first book. Hooray! (Don’t you hate it when that doesn’t happen!?)
So what’s it about?
Twelve-year-old Sophie is a girl who can read minds. She’s kept this a secret from everyone until she meets Fitz who explains that he’s a telepath, too and neither of them is human. In fact, Sophie is an elf and she and her human family are in immediate danger.
Sophie leaves the human world to live in the Elvin world where she tries to remember her past while adjusting to her life as an elf which is fraught with danger from both the human and Elvin worlds.

“When my editor first told me that Jason Chan would be illustrating my covers, I totally cried. I’d been fan-girling his covers for years (and had bought numerous books just for his beautiful art) so I couldn’t believe he’d be doing mine–especially since I’d never mentioned my Jason Chan obsession to my editor. And every year when I’m shown the first glimpse of the new cover I get choked up all over again. Somehow, he always manages to outdo himself.” —Shannon Messenger
