Why this book?
Keeper of the Lost Cities is the first of ten books in the series of the same name. Who doesn’t love a long-running series with plenty of stories to tell? Shannon is amazing at creating fantastical worlds that intersect with our own. Sophie Foster’s telepathic abilities are her first clue that perhaps she doesn’t quite belong. And when Fitz shows up—a boy who shares her ability—he confirms it. Fitz whisks her away to a land of elves, wonder, and danger. This is a wish-fulfillment book of I-should-be-anyplace-else-but-here that goes terribly wrong when a group of rebel elves proves they are intent on doing Sophie harm.
