Author Shannon Messenger recently shared some excellent news for fans of her Keepers of the Lost Cities series. The sprawling fantasy series is making the jump to the sequential page. Your favorite characters are coming to Keeper of the Lost Cities The Graphic Novel Part 1. Yes, you read that right: a Keeper of the Lost Cities graphic novel. And since we all know the story is epic, the graphic novel adaptation will be split into two parts. Hold onto your hats, Fitzphie fans, because we have the exclusive cover reveal for Part 1.

That beautiful depiction of Sophie and Fitz is by Gabriella Chianello. She illustrates the graphic novel, while Celina Frenn adapts the story from Messenger’s books. Messenger has described the Lost Cities in extraordinary detail throughout her prose. It’s all too easy to imagine those descriptions making their way to the page in Chianello’s art. Just imagine seeing all the characters and places you love illustrated for the first time!

And if you’re not familiar with Keeper of the Lost Cities, this will be a wonderful entry point. The series follows 12-year-old Sophie Foster as she meets Fitz, a mysterious boy who opens Sophie’s eyes to a shocking truth. Sophie has to leave everything she knows behind to find out who she really is.

The first novel in the series sets the exciting tone for the rest of the books. Messenger unravels more and more mysteries as the epic story continues. So far, the Keeper books have nine installments ( the most recent one was Stellarlune).

We can’t wait to see more art from the Keeper of the Lost Cities graphic novel. I’m looking forward to experiencing the story in a whole new way.

Keeper of the Lost Cities The Graphic Novel Part 1 arrives on shelves in the US on November 7, 2023. You can place a preorder now.
