In this unforgettable seventh book in the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling Keeper of the Lost Cities series, Sophie must let the past and present blur together, because the deadliest secrets are always the ones that get erased.

Sophie Foster doesn’t know what—or whom—to believe. And in a game with this many players, the worst mistake can be focusing on the wrong threat.

But when the Neverseen prove that Sophie’s far more vulnerable than she ever imagined, she realizes it’s time to change the rules. Her powerful abilities can only protect her so far. To face down ruthless enemies, she must learn to fight.

Unfortunately, battle training can’t help a beloved friend who’s facing a whole different danger—where the only solution involves one of the biggest risks Sophie and her friends have ever taken. And the distraction might be exactly what the villains have been waiting for.

Omg this book is freakin amazing. I got it on Christmas Day and finished it by 10:00 am the next morning. And can I just say... FITZPHIE IS ACTUALLY FINALLY A THING!!!! I’ve re-read that part like three times🤣 **spoiler** What’s with Sophie being unmatchable?!?!?? She finally got up the nerve for a matching maker test thing or whatever to be fitz’s match and be happy, and finds out she’s UNMATCHABLE?!?!? And then the book just ends right there?!?! Im gonna be so stressed out just waiting for the next book! I love the ending because it means that there’s another book, but hate the ending because I have to wait a year to find out what happens next!! Overall an AMAZING book and I would recommend this book to anyone! 55

Team Foster Keefe still

Disappointed5 star

Ok here’s the thing I was soooooooo mad when I read that Sophie goes with Fitz.. I was team foster Keefe all the way! But then it got me thinking maybe it’s a good thing. Know why?? I’ll tell u! KEEFE DESERVES SOOOO MUCH BETTER THAN SOPHIE!!!!!!!!!!!! If she can’t see what an amazing guy he is then let her be with fitz. Who ran off to the never seen to save her?? Keefe Who is always always always there for her when she needs someone to talk to?? Keefe Who can always make her laugh even when she’s sad Keefe Who’s mom is evil and dad is an *******?? Keefe Was fitz name called their??? NO And u know what Keefe is such an amazing guy and if Sophie doesn’t realize that, she doesn’t deserve him. I like fitz but he is a terrible best friend to Keefe. HOW COULD SOPHIE HURT KEEFE LIKE THAT?? after all the times he’s checked on her made her feel better even when he’s upset I’ve gone on long enough. To all the keefoster fans out their I’m still hoping. All in all great book tho 55
