Sophie befriends the mythical Alicorn and puts her mysterious powers to the test in this enchanting second book in the Keeper of the Lost Cities series.

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 before 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…

best book in the series!!!

I enjoy this book the most out of all four books that are out at the moment. Why? Because the plot really expresses Sophie’s strong bond between the ones she loves. Fitz is put in a tough position to where he expresses a little more about himself and also expresses Sophie’s strong hope. I just tear up on how every character shows how much they love Alden. Plus Alden is my all time favorite character throughout the series as well! Shannon Messenger did a amazing job at tightening bonds by breaking ties and really showing who everyone truly is. And I believe because of this, she might be planning for a little surprise in the fifth book that will pay off for her hard work in the second and fourth one…
Hint: the fourth book

When I first read the first book, I totally got weaved into Sophie and her adventures. I thought the second book would just be some cheap rip off, BUT IT WAS EVEN BETTER THAN THE FIRST! I plan on reading the third and fourth

Sparkly Reviews

During reviews I never write about hat specific book, I write about the series or the writer. And this will be no different. I think that the ability to put your thoughts on a page and have them end up like this series is the best thing in the world. I am trying to write a book and I know how hard it is to make a story let a lone a entire dream universe . So I just want to thank all of the people out there that have big hopes and even bigger dreams.
