Meep--this is hard, since my elves would probably say that all the myths about Greek Gods sound like silly human stories. But let's see:

Dex is a Technopath, so he would be a perfect fit for Hephaestus’ Cabin.

Sophie would get along really well with Annabeth in Athena’s Cabin.

Biana would probably be Aphrodite's, since she's by far the prettiest.

And while Keefe would probably try to sneak into Aphrodite’s as well, to be around all the pretty girls, I'm guessing with his trickster ways, he’d fit best in Hermes' Cabin.

Fitz’s seems like he would be in Zeus’ Cabin, since his abilities are so powerful.

Wylie has kind of a chip on his shoulder, so maybe Ares' cabin? I really don't know!

Grady would definitely be Hypnos, since he's a Mesmer

Marella? Um, maybe Nemesis, because she has no problem taking on Stina?(less)

“And I'm the only one with a plan," Fitz reminded them.
"Hey- I've got plans," Keefe argued.
"Plans that don't involve tormenting Dame Alina," Fitz clarified.
"But those are always the best plans!”
Shannon Messenger, Everblaze

“They pulled apart when Keefe shouted, "YOU GUYS HAVE TO SEE THIS!"
They ran to the main room and found Keefe standing under the skylight, holding up Mr. Snuggles like it was a baby lion about to be made king. The sparkly red dragon twinkled almost as much as Keefe's eyes as he said, "I went in to check on our boy and found him cuddling with THIS!"
"Isn't that the same dragon Fitz brought to your house that one time?" Dex asked Sophie.
"WHAT?" Keefe shouted. "YOU KNEW AND YOU DIDN'T TELL ME?!"
"Mr. Snuggles wasn't my secret to share," Sophie said.
"IT'S NAME IS MR. SNUGGLES?! That is... I can't even..." Keefe ran back to Fitz's room shouting, "ARE YOU MISSING YOUR SNUGGLE BUDDY?!"
"Fitz is going to die of embarrassment, you know that, right?" Biana asked.”
Shannon Messenger, Neverseen

“Because our family doesn't decide who we are. WE decide who we are. Believe me, it drives my parents crazy. And sometimes, that's the only thought that gets me through the day.”
Shannon Messenger, Everblaze

Lillian I love the KotLC series!!! It's so hard for me to put down because I just want to keep reading forever. I love the characters and the plots and everything about them!! I only started reading them this year but I absolutely LOVE them! I'm on Nightfall right now and will hopefully soon read all the rest. I can't decide if I like Dex, Fitz, or Keefe better. They're all so great and I love them all! Thanks for accepting my friend request and writing this series!! This series is amazing! I hardly ever have a favorite anything, especially when it comes to books or series but this is my favorite series now!!! ~Lillian :)

Bella (The Daydreaming Damsel) Hi Shannon! Thanks so much for accepting my friend request! I just wanted to say that I'm am totally in love with KOTLC. My friend Charis read them, and I knew she loved them, so I got her all of the books for her birthday. She was kind enough to let me borrow them, and I've never looked back! My favorite character is most likely Keefe, but I really do like Fitz a lot too. I'm so excited for Nightfall to come out, and I'm looking forward to info about Book Seven! I love your writing style, and Team Foster-Keefe is my ship. I also want to read the Sky Fall series, as soon as I can get them at the library! Thanks so much for bringing the Lost Cities to life!!
~Bella

Tiffany Lin Keeper of the Lost Cities is the best series in the world!!!!!!!!!!!! I finished Lodestar and wish that Book 6 was out and about! I also started rereading the whole series. I love your series!
Also, I'm 11, and I was wondering if Let the Sky Fall series was appropriate for my age. I'm a little more advance though (Not to Brag) so maybe for 12 yr olds? Thx!
