Since we all know I'm a fan of my own books, I thought I'd use this space to answer a few of questions I keep hearing:

- Yes--this book AWESOME. I might be biased of course, but I really think you're going to love it. ;)

- The boy on this cover is Fitz (!!!!) (and in case you didn't know, Dex is on the cover of book 1 and Keefe is on the cover of book 2)

- EVERBLAZE is NOT the end of the series. Book 4 (still untitled) will be coming out Fall 2015. And I'm not sure if book 4 will be the end yet--I'

How do you get rid of a glittering city? - You burn it!
With regular fire? - Nope, that would be too lame and plain ordinary. You do it with Everblaze!
Or a lovely, lively fantasy for kids!
SPOILER ALERT! It's a good thing I'm a sucker for all things epic. Even though I'm a tad sorry about Eternalia going to waste.

And the ending? It's pure mallowmelt and lushberry!

This misprint needs to be corrected, I think: Q: And when she focused what little energy she had left, the sound morphed into a strin

I cannot tell you WHY I am so invested in this series (I kind of hate the term guilty pleasure, but it kind of definitely applies to my middle grade break with sanity) or why I am so completely and totally Team Keefe but TEAM KEEFE

Seriously. Team Keefe.

“Right. 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.”

Also, we need more found families. I literally live for them.
She pulled them close, needing to do this right.
“I love you, Mom,” she whispered. “I love you, Dad.”
“We love you too,” they both told her, their voices dissolving into sobs.

OMG this books was so amazing. Sophie and Keefe, ugh, I ship them so hard.

Also the plot twist and turns were so unsuspecting. KOTLC is definitely one of my favorites.

I can't wait for Neverseen and especially when I get to meet Shannon Messenger in a couple weeks for the release of the next book. I am so excited for it!!

Who are Sophie's parents? Who will she fall in love with?

The feels consumed me I was literally lying on the floor for at least five minutes with the book on my head muttering
3.5 stars

Didn't like this one as much as the first two. Still, I want to know what will happen next.

I LOVEEE THIS SERIES!!!!! This has quickly become my favorite book series EVER!!!

Here are the stats:

Romance- Clean! Crushes- but that’s it:)

Violence / Content- Definitely some in this area. Several fight scenes, near-death experiences, betrayals of close friends, death of a main character, etc.

*Cautious readers beware: One fight scene is more descriptive than others. Two people are very angry in a fight. One character burns the others hand off. They are both trying to kill each other. Neithe

OH GOSH THIS BOOK! Wow wow wow wow! Sophie is BAAAAACK with the whole gang! The plot was AMAZING, and the characters are sooo über wonderful! Keefe, Fitz, Dex, and Biana are such great friends, and characters. Parts of this book made me cry. I won't specify them, but you will suffer a blow to the feels!

4.7/5 | Five stars for the cover alone.

This cover. Is fucking gorgeous. It may just be my favourite of the series, perhaps my favourite in the history of book covers I’ve ever encountered. It captures such an impactful moment so immaculately in terms of meaning and beauty. The colour scheme is gorgeous, really selling the whole magical, ethereal quality of the Lost Cities—not to mention it’s somehow accentuated by the title of the book: Everblaze. Of course it also helps that a fetching Fitz and

Good now that I've gotten that out of the way, let me just say that since Fitz is HUGGING Sophie (even if they are falling out of a building) I am Sooooo going to read that book.

Initially, I was going to give this a 2-star rating, but after reading the last few chapters, I decided to increase it to three.

This book was a bit dreary compared to the first two books, and has the same formula. Sophie is so talented that she gets into trouble, and then cue her friends (either one or all of them) or the Black Swan to save her then she saved them after and the end - back to Havenfield (or Everglen) for recovery. Then repeat the cycle all over again.

I didn't like Sophie much in

All I can say This book took me on a huge roller-coaster ride that I wasn't prepared for at all, and wasn't expecting. Really, at all. I don't even know where to begin.
So I wasn't planning on kinda wasting my day through the continual reading of this, but I did. Aaaand soooo. Let the review begin.

I have to admit, there was a lot of character development in this book. And the whole square (not triangle) kinda romance was in the background, but not prominent like I would have liked it

I sincerely love this series, no matter how middle-grade it is.

WHAT this book only has 470 reviews?? We need to advertise this book a LOT! It's seriously amazing and something every kid should read sometime in their lifetime.

It's not that it's deep or personal or has a really strong message. It's just a really good book with lots of plot twists, adventure, friendship, and growing up.

ANYWAYS, on with the review!

SO I have read this book

After almost a year of waiting I finally got to read the third book in the keeper of the lost cities series (which, turns out, its not a trilogy so this is no the end keeper fans). We’re sucked into the story from page one and unlike the previous books it lead somewhere. Don’t get me wrong I liked 1 & 2( I am a keeper fan), but while all the journey is important in the end it didn’t lead somewhere.

I do believe Everblaze was different from 1 & 2, things start to get more serious and dangerous and

I know I’m not this series’s target demographic. But I still think this series has issues that would have bothered me even when I was in the target demo. Specifically: (1) the characters not spending a ton of time at Foxfire, (2) the characters/factions not having motivations that make sense and several of the characters changing drastically between books without much explanation, (3) the way science is used, and (4) the number of characters and their development (or lack thereof).

Stop what you are doing- now

Go read this series. Ok, that’s all I want. It’s one of the series that I stare at how many Goodreads rating it gets and cry slightly. The ratings are high- because this book and previous two are amazing but like no one has read it.

For me to sum this up for you: It’s like reading harry potter again and Percy Jackson, that feeling for the first time when you start reading it and fall into that world with the characters and the world building. That is what it is like

5 Stars!

This, is by far my favourite of the series so far! It was jam packed and there were lots of little clues along the way!

Some things I enjoyed:
- Sandor and Keefe are still my favourite characters
- The building of relationships; friendships and between Grady and Edaline
- Unraveling many secrets
- Dex finally embracing things
- I actually started to like Sophie a little bit more
- I was right about a person in the rebel camp (I was smug okay)
- Sandor and Keefe forever :')
