Yes I'd just like to add to the general "What the hell happened to this book?" questions that are "reviews" here. So, what the hell happened to this book? It's been years. YEARS. YEARRRRSSSS. I've graduated high school and college, gotten married, and had a baby waiting for this book. 2020 is rough enough. Can we get a finale for this series already?
ETA: Okay, now, as of December 2022, I've now had TWO children waiting for this book. This book isn't ever happening, is it? Damn.

Okay now we make a circle to get the publishers to release some info. Maureen, I was wrong to doubt you!

It’s weird that the third Truly Devious book has a release date??? Maureen...pls... I will take anything.

Edit 3/19/19

Did....did Maureen just forget this series or like...?

Update December 2021: can't believe we're on Corona virus fifth comeback in France, we went through global lockdown, had to hand in paper authorization just to go to the store, we've all been accustomed to wearing a face mask everyday and we're basically pre-apocalyspe at the moment, before this book was released.
If i could go back and tell my college student self that a global pendemic will have to happen before this book coms out i would have given up hope way sooner.
and still no sign of it. maybe next year..? :')


UPDATE April 2020: heard Maureen said on twitter this book was coming soon...? is there hope? Should I read the whole series for the fourth time?


*still praying the gods for this to come out someday*

It's 2018 now and I get the feeling we'll be waiting another year.
I'll wait as long as it takes to get the next instalment of my favourite series but PLEASE know I'd still love to read it!!!
...of course I will be reading Truly Devious in the meantime

edit 26/12/18: There's still 5 days left of 2018 I still have hope 😂😂

edit 29/04/21: I'm not as full of hope as I once was. I'm in my late twenties now. I have a job and I bought a house. But still, I would love to get my hot little hands on Untitled.

[160219] I don't know how I feel about there being a fourth installment as I feel like it could have been avoided, but i'm far too invested in this series to not properly finish it.

Dear Maureen,


You can’t just leave us with the bad guys driving off into the sunset. It’s just not very nice.

Between waiting on you for this and for the next Truly Devious and waiting on your bestie, Libba, for the next Diviners, I feel like I’m in the second circle of hell, blown about in a vicious tornado WITH NO RESPITE.

Ugh. Not fair.

i would sell my soul for this book

update - it's 2019 and i still haven't heard anything about this. the publishing date is obviously a lie, 'cuz it ain't 2018 no more. i'm mad as heck.

- edit - i'm thinking it might be time to give up hope 7/17/20

I've been waiting for the book for years, and I've like forgotten everything from book three except that I ship Rory and Stephen. I seriously want to know what happens next, but something tells me that I'm not going to find out anytime soon.

Hey guys, just thought I'd tell you that I wrote Maureen a letter and asked, and she replied and said the book would be released, but she wasn't sure when.

Just howling into the void, here in August 2020, about a book I am pretty sure won’t happen.

It’s funny, I reconciled myself years and years ago to A Song of Ice and Fire never being finished by the original author but I still have a tiny flame of hope this will appear somehow somewhere, maybe self-published, and we will rejoice.

Hey, in an E-Mail i asked Maureen Johnson, if there will be a forth shades of london book. Yesterday I got the answer that the forth book will be released, but she doesn't know when.
Never give up hope.

Hello to those who are here in 2020 also trying to be as patient as I am for the 4th book! I've kept up with this series since I was 13 and now I am 20 haha I was years younger than Rory and everyone and now I'm aging as I await the final book. From what I was told by a source that's probably not reliable, Maureen has the 4th book finished and since the entirety of Truly Devious is basically completed she is in the works of publishing the last book in the Shades of London series. It makes sense but I'm not too sure about how factual that actually is but it does give a tiny ounce of hope nonetheless. I miss Rory and Stephen so much and it doesn't help that I spent quarantine rereading the series. I mean she can't just leave us with that ending IT'D BE EVIL TO DO THAT. Anywhooo if anyone has any news and updates on this series please share I'm beggiiinnng

The way it says I shelved this as "to-read" in 2015. Ma'am, it is now 2020 when are we getting this book please I can't even remember what happened in the first three anymore. BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN FIVE YEARS. I'm not mad, I promise. I just want the fourth book.

I hope so much that Maureen gives us information when the book will come out (and whether it will come out). I just need the 4th book, it's sooo exciting. And the story just has to go on!

Why is the wait for this book so long? I need to know more. Things are getting more interesting by the second and it's been months since I've read the last book. I keep forgetting about this series and I DON'T WANT TO CAUSE I NEED TO KNOW HOW IT ENDS

I ether lost interest or forgot about this series after book 2, but I was just reminded of it and saw there'll be a 4th book in 2018! I definitely need to reread books 1 and 2, then finally read book 3 in preparation.
