Everblaze (Keeper of the Lost Cities, Book 3)
By Shannon Messenger
Hi! Have you ever felt like your entire family was turned upside down by an announcement? Well, not just a family, but a whole country of elves has been turned upside down by a devastating announcement!
It all started with a tracker. When Keefe and Sophie went to visit their friend Silveny, an alicorn, they discovered that an ogre tracker had been placed on Silveny’s tail. This was bad because this tracker was meant for people who the ogres were about to kill! AND Sophie and Keefe had a suspicion that the ogres were working with the “Neverseen,” a group that was working against the Black Swan, the group that made Sophie. The Neverseen had tried in many ways to kill Sophie. The person who was taking care of Silveny was at a loss to explain how the tracker had gotten on Silveny. They snipped off the tracker and made some more defenses to guard Silveny.
Then, because in the last book Sophie had proved that she could make minds heal after a mind break, Fintan had been proven innocent and so Sophie was asked to perform a mind healing on him. But, when she did, something went wrong. Fintan tried to lead her down the wrong path so that she wouldn’t be able to find the memory that he had been hiding. Then, with the last bit of consciousness he had, he burned down the place where they were doing the mind healing. He knew that the fire would kill himself, but he hoped that it would bring down one of the Councillors, or maybe even Sophie, with him. Sadly, Councillor Kenric was lost in the fire. Kenric was one of Sophie’s biggest supporters!
How will the elvin country handle the loss of one of their beloved Councillors? Who will they pick to replace him in the rulers of the elvin world? And will guilt take over Sophie’s mind because she feels like she killed Kenric? As I always say, read the book to find out!
A few helpful things I like to say about the books I read:
“Run and Get Mom” (how I describe the scariness factor – zero being not scary at all and five being majorly scary): 3
“Yucky-Lovey Stuff” (how I describe the romance factor – zero having no yucky-lovey parts in it and five having major yucky-lovey parts): 3
I give this book 5 wands.
This book was great! It was exciting and intriguing and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way!
