Release date: October 1st, 2013

Sophie Foster thought she was safe. Settled into her home at Havenfield, surrounded by friends, and using her unique telepathic abilities to train Silveny--the first female alicorn ever seen in the Lost Cities--her life finally seems to be coming together. But Sophie's kidnappers are still out there. And when Sophie discovers new messages and clues from the mysterious Black Swan group, she’s forced to take a terrifying risk—one that puts everyone in incredible danger. As long buried secrets rise to the surface, it’s once again up to Sophie to uncover hidden memories—before someone close to her is lost forever.

Review (ARC):
This is a series I unexpectedly discovered and have fallen in love with. The entire story is something that is fresh and exciting to read and I can only imagine where the author will take us next. Before you read any further into this review, if you haven't read the first novel of this awesome series, go pick up Keeper of the Lost Cities. I promise you won't regret it. Sophie is the main character who has discovered that even though she was raised in the human world, she is in actuality an elf (the graceful, beautiful kind). Sophie has a lot to contend with, especially with understanding herself and wanting to understand the people who made her. I love all of the changes we get to experience in Sophie and I can't wait to see what happens as she continues to grow and develop new abilities. The other characters in this novel all have distinct personalities that make them come alive on the pages. A few new friends are introduced as well and they definitely add both entertainment and adventure to this novel.There has also been the hint of a love triangle or square for the past two books, but as the characters are still quite young, nothing has really developed out of them yet. There is plenty of adventure and some sadness in this novel which really pull on your emotions and make you long to get to the end of the book to see if everything turns out ok. I absolutely loved this novel and I definitely recommend it if you love elves, fantasy fiction, or just an entertaining story. I can't wait to see what the author comes up with next in this amazing tale!
