Sophie uncovers shocking secrets—and faces treacherous new enemies—in this electrifying third book in the Keeper of the Lost Cities series.

Sophie Foster is ready to fight back.

Her talents are getting stronger, and with the elusive Black Swan group ignoring her calls for help, she’s determined to find her kidnappers—before they come after her again.

But a daring mistake leaves her world teetering on the edge of war, and causes many to fear that she has finally gone too far. And the deeper Sophie searches, the farther the conspiracy stretches, proving that her most dangerous enemy might be closer than she realizes.

In this nail-biting third book in the Keeper of the Lost Cities series, Sophie must fight the flames of rebellion, before they destroy everyone and everything she loves.


Everblaze is the third book in the fantastic middle-grade series Keeper of Lost Cities by Shanon Messenger. There is quite a bit that we learn in this third book. Sophie and her friends keep growing and learning things about this world, and Sophie suddenly finds out she belongs. One of the main themes was the moral question of who has the right to give or take away abilities and the freedom to use them. Unfortunately, the council has a lot of power to weigh in on things, and I was frustrated with how easily they could decide to give or take away something.
The ending of this third book is intense and what is uncovered is horrible, and I did not see it coming—I am excited that the fourth book will take on a different feel from the previous books. Bring it on.
