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)
Shannon Messenger Oh my, that's HARD--there are so so so so so so so so many! In fact, I can't choose just one, so I'm going to pick three.

Rick Riordan, because I love…more
Oh my, that's HARD--there are so so so so so so so so many! In fact, I can't choose just one, so I'm going to pick three.

Rick Riordan, because I love the way he uses humor, and I'd want him to give me some pointers.

Tony DiTerlizzi, because his writing is so incredibly visual (and then maybe I could beg him to do some illustrations, too)

JK Rowling, because she's one of the most intricate plot weavers I've ever seen.

With our powers combined, we could TAKE OVER THE WORLD. *sends out hopeful vibes to Rick, Tony, and JK* :)(less)

I know LOTS of you have been wondering whether there would be a B&N Exclusive Edition of FLASHBACK (like there was last year with NIGHTFALL) and I can finally confirm that yes–THERE WILL BE. And it’s going to be sooooooooooooooooooooooo awesome! Behold:



In case you can’t tell from the graphic, the exclusive B&N edition will have fancy endpapers featuring illustrations (drawn by me) AND...

"Plans that don't involve tormenting Dame Alina," Fitz clarified.
"But those are always the best plans!”

BOOKSandCaffeine Thank you so so much for accepting my friend request!! I adore your books!! :)


message 27: by Bella

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!
