In this unforgettable seventh book in the 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.



Flashback Keeper of Lost Cities book 7, Sophie must let her past and present blur together because the deadliest are always the ones that get erased. Flashback is a long book the audiobook is over 23 hours long, and I admit, on a vast chunk, maybe 200 pages, we have Sophie stuck in the healing center. Much of the real excitement comes towards the end with the alicorns, the babies, and another showdown with lady Giselle. The actual cliffhanger is at the end, as they have been hinting throughout the books about what would happen when it comes time for Sophie to be matched. Like everything with Sophie, nothing goes as it should, and we are left with more questions about Sophie and her creators. On to book 8.
