About The Book

The first book in the internationally bestselling Keepers of the Lost Cities series reimagined in stunning graphic novel format! Perfect for readers aged 9+ and fans of Harry Potter, Rick Riordan and Amari and the Night Brothers.

Twelve-year-old Sophie Foster has a secret. She’s a Telepath with the power to hear the thoughts of everyone around her – something that she's never spoken about, even to her own family.

But everything changes when she meets Fitz, a mysterious boy with the same ability. She discovers there's somewhere she does belong, and staying where she is will put her in grave danger. In the blink of an eye, Sophie is forced to leave behind everything and start a new life in a magical world.

But what if life in the beautiful Lost Cities isn’t as idyllic as it seems? And what if there’s a reason she was hidden away?

This volume contains the first half of the epic novel adapted to a new format with beautiful artwork.
