Overview

Illusions shatter—and Sophie and her friends face impossible choices—in this astonishing eighth book in the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling Keeper of the Lost Cities series.

Only this first edition includes an exclusive extra scene from Tam’s point of view as well as beautiful illustrated endpapers from Shannon Messenger.

Sophie Foster wants answers. But after a lifetime of lies, sometimes the truth is the most dangerous discovery. Even the smallest secret comes with terrifying new responsibilities.

And Sophie’s not the only one with blank spots in her past, or mysteries surrounding her family. She and her friends are part of something much bigger than they imagined—and their roles have already been chosen for them.

Every clue drags them deeper into the conspiracy. Every memory forces them to question everything—especially one another. And the harder they fight, the more the lines blur between friend and enemy.

Amazing book!! As a fan since Everblaze, this book was everything I wanted Flashback to be. So many exciting answers. I was disappointed in the pacing and plot of Flashback, but I knew Shannon would deliver with this one. She really did, and as you'll see, it meant a lot to me. 1. The pacing was great. Most obviously, there weren't any gaps in the timeline or long periods of time spent doing one thing. But more than that, each action caused the next action. Character moments were spaced out evenly with plot moments in between. It was so satisfying to read because the flow of time in it felt natural, and when I put it down I felt like I was returning from another world. 2. The plot was great. It wasn't Neverseen-level great, but any holes the plot had were filled with the reveals for me. All the information we learned felt vital and important (unlike in Flashback, where I hardly felt like we learned anything, except for a little information about Shadowflux). The pacing made it wonderful. And the bits of mystery really kept me turning pages. 3. The characters. Oh, how I love the characters. Everything that happened between the characters in this book felt so natural and expected. (Well, Dex seemed a little off to me, but he was the only one.) I think Shannon did something very hard very well with a certain character scene, and I loved it. The last thing I'll say is this: I needed this book this year. This is my favorite series and I wait eagerly for every book- But this one came at the perfect time, because I really needed a break and an escape. I told my friends that when I finished binge reading, I really felt like I had just returned from a vacation in another world. I forgot my worries and was able to return and look at them with fresh eyes. It really gave me the mental reset I needed, and I know writing a book that pulls me that much is only something Shannon Messenger could do. ("Team Foster-Keefe is going to win"! ;)

Ok so here. I feel like the start is slow and boggy, just a bunch of dialogue and explaining. The action starts only in the first 50 pages, and even then it isn't that much, mostly covered by dialogue. There is, of course, more action in the next chapters though, and it honestly gets confusing between certain relationships. Or really all relationships since people are starting to explain more of their true feelings after All. This. Worldbuilding. But even then, nothing new is happening, but the plot does start to open a little bit. Now after more dialogue, the real action starts to begin, and it just keeps on going with occasional stops to visit the Dialogue store. Then the typical Sophie Cycle happens. Sophie makes a plan, doubts herself, fixes it, doubts herself again, fixes the plan, doubts herself and then makes the plan official with just a bit of doubt. The plot twist after the Sophie Cycle isn't that big and honestly, to me at least, expected. There is one twist that got me about someone's legacy. *wink and a nudge if you've ever read the other books* So overall, Its okay. Could've been faster, I honestly didn't need 800 pages for this book.

This book opens nine days after the previous book ends. Sophie is finally able to talk to Mr. Forkle, one of the leaders of the Black Swan. However, he is most interested in discussing the most likely target for the Neverseen’s next attack instead of answering Sophie’s questions. His theory makes sense, but can Sophie and her friends figure out a way to stop them? Meanwhile, the Council has a surprising and game changing offer for Sophie. Will she take it? Naturally, that just scratches the surface of this book since it is almost 800 pages. But it is worth it to watch the plots and sub-plots unfold. Sophie is on quite a journey, and this is another large step forward since we get some twists and revelations in this book. Obviously, I don’t recommend starting here. There’s been a lot of world building in the previous seven books, and that’s always important in a fantasy series. Plus, because the books build on each other, there are major spoilers for events in the earlier books. The characters and their relationships continue to grow, and I loved watching that. Plus there’s plenty of humor and alicorn cuteness. The target middle grade audience will love it, as will anyone who enjoys fantasy. The pages flew by as I got lost in the story. Just be ready for that cliffhanger.

This is one of the best books I've ever read. It has adventure, romance (which I'm a sucker for) and mystery. It is such an amazing book in an amazing series. Ms. Messenger please, don't stop writing! It has only been out a few weeks and I just can't wait for the next. I have to admit though I wanted it to be at least a thousand pages. This is a fantastic book totally worth the read. As for my final comment though, I totally vote for team Foster-Keefe for ever thought Fitzphie was cute. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next! I really hope her next one comes out soon!!! P.S. please cover the topic of who her dad is and what Keefe's middle name is. And I'm still waiting for what the great Gulon incident is. I have a bad feeling I will never find out.

Another thrilling installment of the KotLC series brings action, mystery, stunning new revelations, and drama. I truly enjoyed every minute of reading it, and could not stop turning the pages until I got to the very end. Keeper fans: prepare to have your mind blown.
