Featured Book of the Month

Halley K., Staff Writer

Hello again, eagles! Welcomes! And welcome to yet another edition of F.B.O.T.M. (That is, Featured Book of the Month for newcomers.) I am very excited to introduce this month’s book, especially since I owe this one to my friends and they are sure excited to read this month’s edition of F.B.O.T.M. So, without any further dribble-drabble, I present to you this month’s featured book… Keeper of the Lost Cities.

Keeper of the Lost Cities is a book series that not one, but two of my close friends have recommended to me. Considering the fact that it involves the majority of things I like reading, I think that they made a good call with this one. Now, time for a sad disclaimer. I have not actually read this book yet. Keeper of the Lost Cities, while one of the books at the top of my TBR, is not top priority… yet. So, I am actually getting the majority of this information from my friends, one of whom you can actually check out right here at The Talon Online! Drum roll, please. And her name is Lorelei A! So, go check out her profile and read some of her articles. She is such a good writer. Now, onto the book.

So, Keeper of the Lost Cities is the first of what is now a 7-book series, with more books being written as I write.  The most recently published book, Keeper of the Lost Cities: Flashback, was published in November of last year. Keeper of the Lost Cities is a book about a young girl named Sophie, who is a telepath (which no one knows, so keep it hush-hush), and is considered odd, having skipped several grades.

Then, Sophie meets Fitz. She finds out that he is a telepath as well, and that the reason she has always felt odd and out of place is because she is. Fitz tells her that she must leave her family, and go travel to a mysterious new world. Throughout this book, Sophie tries to find out the hidden secrets of her past, and in doing so may end up hurting herself in the process. Keeper of the Lost Cities is a suspenseful read, and quite enjoyable to those who like fantasy.

So, I am so excited to read Keeper of the Lost Cities, and I am really pumped to learn more about Sophie’s story. Now, read on, young eagles! Read on! (And I will see you in next month’s edition of F.B.O.T.M.)
