Publisher's Summary

In this riveting debut, a telepathic girl must figure out why she is the key to her brand-new world - before the wrong person finds the answer first.

Twelve-year-old Sophie has never quite fit into her life. She’s skipped multiple grades and doesn’t really connect with the older kids at school, but she’s not comfortable with her family, either. And Sophie has a secret - she’s a Telepath, someone who can read minds. But the day Sophie meets Fitz, a mysterious (and adorable) boy, she learns she’s not alone. He’s a Telepath too, and it turns out the reason she has never felt at home is that, well…she isn’t. Fitz opens Sophie’s eyes to a shocking truth, and almost instantly she is forced to leave behind her family for a new life in a place that is vastly different from what she has ever known.

But Sophie still has secrets, and they’re buried deep in her memory for good reason: The answers are dangerous and in high-demand. What is her true identity, and why was she hidden among humans? The truth could mean life or death - and time is running out.

Reader was horrible

Would you try another book from Shannon Messenger and/or Julia Roundtree?

The reader of this book had the most annoying teenager-ish voice ever. It was distracting to the story.

Would you be willing to try another one of Julia Roundtree’s performances?

Never

Great story, shame about the production.

The storyline is fantastic - fast-paced, but in a wonderful setting, and the heroine is smart and brave, but also very good. The only drawback is the production - the narrator is very average, and the producer has not edited out her pauses nor swallowing.

narrator...barf

was a good story but the narrator was awful. too much swallowing and pauses and indistinct voices. She would be better suited to read a 20min childrens story. i normally HATE when they change narrators in a series, but i really hope they do. None of the pauses were edited out and there was a lot of teeth gnashing toward the end. The story was wonderful with a broad world you could easily get lost in with a lot of characters you want to know more about. cant wait to read the next one!

Good story with a female lead

It is mostly aimed at teenage girls but I still enjoyed it.
Interesting world with some interesting characters.
I did find a couple of small breaks in consistency but they didn't ruin the story.

Perfect Book

The book started and right away I jude it. At first I hated the book but still I listened. The book is very boring at first but you have to wait till Sophie first meets Fitz. The book is really great as soon as I the finished I started to listen to the second book called Exile. The narrating was fabulous and I wish the second book was narrated by the first narrator. The story is a mix of mystery, romance, and adventure. SPOILER: though Sophie never falls in love with anyone Dex is in love with her and Sophie did have a crush on Fitz. I love books like these and I think if you like those kind of books you should read Keeper of the Lost Cities.

the authors voice wasn't really my favorite and she read some of the characters voices differently than how I imagined them, but I love all the KOTLC books!

Can't wait for the sequel

If you could sum up Keeper of the Lost Cities in three words, what would they be?

Magic with honor

What was one of the most memorable moments of Keeper of the Lost Cities?

Over and over again, Sophie has the choice to cheat and lie, but responds with honor. It's wonderful to be able to enjoy a magical world where "elves" value integrity.

What about Julia Roundtree’s performance did you like?

You could tell which character was talking.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Sophie and adoptive family struggle to overcome the pain of their previous losses in order to decide whether or not to commit to one another.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait to read a sequel! Maybe a new Harry Potter type series.

Fantastic adventure!

This audiobook has great story, plot, adventure, and friendship. As Sofie battles against many things including grades, having to leave her human family and home to go to a world where people can levatate and light leap, but finally feels as if she belongs, figuring out who the black swan is and true to figure out if they are murrders, or good people fighting for a change.Although the narrator in this audio book wouldn't be my first choice, this audio book you must get.

AWSOME!

I LOVE this story, but to me Fitz sounded like a girl. Witch I didn't like, but over all this is the BEST story I have ever heard.
