Have you ever wondered if trolls and gnomes were real?Well in Lodestar the leaders of each species came to sign the treaty including Sophie Foster. Everything was going fine till the shaking started to happen. Everything started to fall Sophie was locked in her room. When she got out she was trying to find her way out because for the safety there they had to blind fold everyone. She found Mr. Forkle and he told her to get out but she said she wasn’t leaving till she left with Edaline. He left to find Edaline Sophie was running to get out of there until she crossed paths with Edaline. They started to work to get out. They eventually came out alive. Keefe told Sophie that Mr. Forkle wasn’t with the other people. Sophie went with Keefe to find Mr. Forkle they found him with Councilor Oralie. When they found him he was bleeding and he told them that he got into a fight with Gethen and he used the sword near his cell.
I like how Messenger made Sophie so she never gives up and she is always trying to move on. That’s why I think the theme is “never lose hope”. I think this is the theme because Sophie was going to give up on breaking down the door but Sophie kept trying and trying. Some memorable characters are Sophie, Keefe, and Dex.
Sophie is a girl who would do anything to save people who she cares about even if it means risking her life. Keefe is trying to solve problems even though he has some of his own. I can understand Keefe that he is hiding his problems but he should know that his friends are there for him.Dex is always a boy who was looked down on but ever since he manifested as a technopath it stopped. I feel bad for Dex because he was always looked down on just because his parents were a bad match. Now I am going to tell you how elves live like.
The world that elves live in is divided up because trolls, gnomes, ogres, goblins, etc need space too. Elves live far apart from each other so they light-leap.
Something that could be improved is when Mr. Forkle was with Councilor Oralie. How did he end up there because all I know is that the prison was underground not above ground.
Although one spot was confusing I still give it 5 stars. I would recommend this to fourth graders and up because of the violence and because I feel like third graders and above wouldn’t understand fantasy.
