Keeper of the Lost Cities is the first book in a series that is still being written. The series is written by Shannon Messenger.
The book starts off with Sophie in a high school class in the real world. She is only twelve years old. She then runs into Fitz who tells her that she is not really a human – she is an elf. Elves are not like the ones you would think of from Santa’s workshop or Lord of the Rings. These Elves have special powers, or abilities. Sophie has the abilities to read minds and a photographic memory, which is the reason why she is so smart in the human world. During her time in the Elves land she starts to go to schools, and makes friends like Brianna and Dex. She also learns that there are other species not just Elves.
This book was a lot of fun to read. I really enjoy long books and this book was 512 pages! A bit longer than I normally read but I love longer books.
