Previous reviews of this series:

Hello! It’s been a while since my last review, but I’ve been working hard to save money for comic con this weekend. Keeper of the lost cities is an ongoing series, the sixth book is set to be released this fall, and that’s the reason why I’ve tried to avoid reading this book, I don’t want to catch up with the series and then have to wait too long. In the end I had a reading block and this book was the only one I truly wanted to read.

As this is the fourth installment, I can’t write a synopsis without spoiling previous books, so I’ll just place the one in goodreads. 

Sophie Foster is on the run—but at least she's not alone.

Her closest friends from the Lost Cities have gone with her to join the Black Swan. They still

have doubts about the shadowy organization, but the only way to find answers is to start working with them. And as they settle into their new lives, they uncover secrets far bigger than anything they’d imagined.

But their enemies are far from done, and unleash a terrifying plague that threatens the safety of an entire species. Sophie and her friends fight with everything they have—with new allies joining them—but every choice has consequences. And trusting the wrong person could prove deadly.

In this game-changing fourth book in the Keeper of the Lost Cities series, Sophie must question everything to find a truth that will either save her world—or shatter it. 

I really enjoyed this book; the prologue teases the reader with an interesting revelation that totally hooked me since the beginning.

After that interesting prologue, things slow down a bit, Sophie’s life changes when she joins the Black Swan with her friends, so she has to remain hidden, because of that there is not much action during the first half of the book, just theories and speculations by the main characters.

I think that even thou the book lacks of action for most of it, it compensates it with character development. I love seeing these kids grow up during the series, they started as normal kids and now they are revolutionary teenagers full of responsibilities they shouldn’t have. The character that has
developed the most during the book is Keefe, and Dex had some development too, for the better. Also, in this installment we meet new characters that will become important for the Black Swan and the Elvin World.

In this book we finally can see part of the real plans of the Neverseen, they will stop hiding and show themselves and their plans to everyone. With this we can see more clearly all the flaws in the Elvin World that seemed so bright and perfect in the first book.

The book keeps the reader hooked since the start with new characters, revelations and more questions about what will happen with the Lost Cities. If you have started the series, you totally should continue, it gets more and more interesting with each book. If you haven’t started this series, you totally should if you are looking for a fantastic adventure with mystery, lovable characters and a well-built fantasy world.
