    • There's so much to love about this series. It's funny smart, immersive, thought-provoking, and even romantic in a tweenage kind of way. The many different creatures and magical powers are captivating and detailed. It's so fun to explore this world. I absolutely love how mental magic is handled. The process of infiltrating, exploring, and damaging other people's minds is explored more intricately in this book than pretty much any other fantasy series I've read. The action is also a whole lot of fun, and Sophie Foster is impossible to dislike, even if she is the most special person in the universe. She's just so kind and insecure and doggedly determined to be good that you can't help but feel for her. She's a sweetheart.Shannon Messenger also has one that special gift that some authors have, and she's only gotten better at it: she compels you to keep reading. I gobbled this book down, eager to get answers to my million questions.Which brings me to my biggest complaint:So. Many. Unanswered. Questions.Can't really explain without getting too spoilery, but Messenger has been dragging out about a dozen plot threads for yeaaaaaars. She's great at tantalizing hints, but I don't want this series to end up like a TV show with too many seasons. It was actually kind of nice to see more progress on the romantic side of the story, even if it wasn't really the relationship I'd prefer. But in terms of the main plot, things have a way of reversing themselves so many times they just go back to the status quo. I'd love to see more development, more answers, and a better view of the finish line (which I'm sure will be amazing.)
    • I absolutely LOVE these characters. Messenger creates a complex believable world. And every book in the series is an enjoyable read.HOWEVER, after reading seven books, I find myself starting to weary, and the series seems to be never-ending. I am ready for a conclusion.
    • I've been obsessed with Keeper of the Lost Cities for several years. You know, some authors just have the ability to compel you and rein you in, and to me, Shannon Messenger is definitely one of them. Contrary to some people, KOTLC has not lost its appeal to me as the story progresses. Yes, the books are rather long, but that's something I take pleasure in. It's a story with a moving plot, though some people may disagree.
    • Just when I think this series can’t get any better Miss Messenger tops herself. I love the characters, her dialog between them is perfect. Her storytelling keeps you wanting to turn the pages, I seriously have a hard time putting it down. I highly recommend this series for yourself and of course for kids!
    • More of the same. Neverseen hatches plot, Sophie and company fall right into it...etc,etc,etc. I started out loving the books- couldnt wzit for the next one. But this is one mean cliffhanger too many. I've decided that since we have no idea how long the aithor will drag this out, that I'll just wait until the last one comes out, then I'll read the rest. Plenty of other reading material out there.
