Love this! Why is this not on par in popularity with the Harry Potter books? The quality, the imagination, the worldbuilding, the imagery, the dark-and-light parts of the story, multifaceted protagonists and lots more... This is the memorable winner in all categories!
Can somebody please put me out of my misery? I won't be able to wait for the 7th book... Ughhhhhh!!!

They weren't friends. And they weren't actually sisters.
They were just two different girls from two different worlds.

There are a lot of things I can say about Nightfall, but one thing I'm 100% sure of is that it was way better than Lodestar.

Nightfall picks up right after the last scene of the previous book, where Sophie meets her adoptive younger sister, Amy, and talks to her for the first time since Keeper of the Lost Cities, when Sophie leaves her adoptive family and sets off for a completely

*sigh* Counting the days until I can read this.
Countdown: Approximately, 3 months and 30 more days to go!



*finally finishes the very last page after seven months later*

Okay, um, that was... interesting.



Did anyone else feel like this was being rushed? Like Mrs. Messenger was trying to write Nightfall as quickly as possible so that her dear readers would have some new installment by November? The reason why I ask this is because throughout the book, it felt like everything was going by too fast

Can we stop pretending this is a dinner party and get back to why you have a drawing of the Nightfall symbol?


Please do.

WARNING: RANT AHEAD

So many characters and alter-egos and talking and the love triangle/square that ultimately makes me hate Keefe (I'm sorry! I don't want to!) and all of this chaos. There's only so much you can put in a series, Shannon Messenger. I'm sorry, but this is too much.

A List of My Issues:

1. Too Many Characters

I miss the old crew. They were well-defined characters

I almost didn't write this review. I've thought about it a lot over the past couple of weeks... Basically the lack of caps and adding in a bunch of extra voooooooowels makes me wonder if it's worth my time. You see where I'm going with this? Read the top like 3 pages of reviews and you'll get it.

In short, I'm a bit snarky on the subject. I am, really. I know it. Why? Because this book, this series, is really really good. There's a lot of things amazing about it and it's a lot deeper than you'd

UPDATE 05/08/17:

THE TITLE AND COVER IS OUT!!! And ofc it's absolutely beautiful. My darling Sophie is looking beautiful on the cover and Keefe is looking absolutely dashing <3. And Linh!!!! Her first cover!! This deserves some mallowmelt to celebrate!

Dear Shannon,
FIRST OFF, WHAT have you done to me and my heart?! I would like some of that potion! I hope I can make it in Alchemy.

SECOND, I sincerely hope my eyes are deceiving me because I see a Fall 2017 and a Fall 2018 as the release dates.

This book disappointed me...

I wanted to love this book. I really did. I have been a fan of this series since the beginning...BEFORE it became popular. But sadly, this book fell flat.

You know those books that you read and by the end you are like, meh, what just happened? Or that book that is the second book in a trilogy, where nothing actually happens thus or becomes a 'filler' book.

Sadly, that was this book. Nothing really happen. It was pages upon pages of nothing . So now I am going to list

I have an announcement, I am in love. with.............the KOLTC books. Here's the problem, I'm also dying. Because of........the KOLTC books. Every time I go to the library for a new KOLTC book, I swear my heart flutters, like Sophie's does around Fitz. Mrs. Messenger, you can definitely make me laugh, you can also make me cry, but right now you are just being brutal. I mean.....A CLIFFHANGER and A LONNNNG WAIT??????? So that's my first problem, and my second is about Keefe. I honestly like ...more

Pre-Release: Is it time for Nightfall yet? Oh, not yet? Okay. I'll just reread the first five books...

WHY DON'T I HAVE THE SEVENTH BOOK. I BETTER BE GOING TO THE LIBRARY SOON!

Cliffhangers aside, this book was really, really good. Just read it. Also I got my sister hooked on this series and she is literally devouring it. XDD

4.5 stars.

Am i the only one uncomfortable with thses adults shipping fourteen year-olds? Is it necessary to tease so much about thesquare love triangle and i miss the friendship between Keefe and Fitz. It has faded to tension between them for Sophie. Dex and Biana barely appear anymore. At points, Keefe is just annoying,really.

LINH IS MA GIRL.

FINTAN CAN DIE.

I think there were too many characters in this book, but that's literally the only problem I had with it (oh, and the entire lack of Keefe). SO GOOD. Give me Flashback NOW.

4.6/5 | I think—I think —I may have been blinded by sheer entertainment value so maybe, just maybe, this really shouldn’t get 5 stars and I’m a liiiiiiiiittle bit biased.

I believe it is high time I addressed the key question of the Keeper of the Lost Cities series: Do I think someone tugging their eyelashes out when they’re nervous is a thing?

My answer:
Yes, yes I do. As a matter of fact, I had the exact same habit when I was ten up until I was thirteen or fourteen. It’s a thing, guys. It may

1. PLOT
Repetition, repetition and more repetition.
At this point in time, the series is merely going round and round in circles. The plot was unnecessarily long and filled with rather mundane details at times. Nightfall is one of the weakest books, plot-wise, in the entire series.

2. SOPHIE AND CO
I love the dynamics of the group, and their banter - but the group has become rather large: Dex was practically shoved to the background, Fitz became Sophie’s official mind booster... Tam and Linh were

3.5 Stars!

This isn't my favourite of the series so far, I think I got kind of bored with the focus on Sophies human mum and dad, like some bits were really really good and exciting, and other parts felt kind of filler. It's such a long book and I don't know if I thought I was getting into a slump half way through which has made me rate this not as high as the others but this series is so good and for me this book wasn't my favourite.

Some little rambles:
- Keefe will forever be my favourite
