Neverseen (MMGM)

Sunday, March 20, 2016

Hi everyone! Welcome to MMGM! I just wanted to let you know that my heart has been severely damaged. *cries* Yup, that's right, I read Neverseen. No, of course I won't tell you *sniffs* specifically what....thing happens in the book! You're just going to have to read it to find out. *tries to find distractions to avoid prying questions* Ooh, look at the cover! (Also: I know I'm totally late on the review, sorry!) 

  • Age Range: 8 - 12 years
  • Series: Keeper of the Lost Cities (Book 4)
  • Hardcover: 688 pages
  • Publisher: Aladdin (November 3, 2015)

"Sophie battles the rebels—and recovers dark memories from her past—in this jaw-dropping fourth book in the bestselling Keeper of the Lost Cities series.

Sophie Foster is on the run—but at least she's not alone.

Her closest friends from the Lost Cities have gone with her to join the Black Swan. They still have doubts about the shadowy organization, but the only way to find answers is to start working with them. And as they settle into their new lives, they uncover secrets bigger than anything they’d imagined.

But their enemies are far from done, and unleash a terrifying plague that threatens the safety of an entire species. Sophie and her friends fight with everything they have—with new allies joining them—but every choice has consequences. And trusting the wrong person could prove deadly.

In this game-changing fourth book in the Keeper of the Lost Cities series, Sophie must question everything to find a truth that will either save her world—or shatter it." 

Whew, "game-changing" is definitely an understatement. It had me flipping the pages, flying through each chapter, and gasping at everything plot twist that was in it. It was an AMAZING BOOK.

A few things that caught my attention throughout the book:

I know you guys are gonna squeal with me when I say it. Ready? There are new characters! Squee! Yes, you read that right. Although we still read about the original Keeper crew, there are so many new characters that are introduced! I was so happy about how much character development there was and just the fact that the new characters played really big roles in Sophie's story made me super glad.

Another thing to be excited about. There's a totally new, completely amazing SETTING! *cue all squealing* Yup, there's a new setting! And it picks up right where we left off in Everblaze. *winks* I'm not going to say where because I know some of us haven't read book 3, but I swear it's worth it.

There's a LOVE OCTAGON! (There might not be 8, but shh...) If you thought that it was awkward during books 1, 2, and 3, psh, you're in for a doozy! There's a ton of Sokeefe, Sofitz, and Sofex moments in store! And not to mention...other stuff.

THEN, there's...the ending. I kind of wanted to scream when I reached the ending. But it would be impolite to my neighbors, especially because it was around 3 or 4 in the morning. But fear not, I screamed in my head! Yes, I did. After I read that last sentence, my eyes kind of just zoomed over to the next page expecting the rest of the story. *horrified voice* BUT NO! It was the acknowledgements. Which is great, you know, but I mean, IT WAS A STINKING CLIFFHANGER! We were left hanging. Why Shannon?! If you've been around social media (Tumblr, twitter, insta) you'll see that the fangirls (and guys) of KOtLC are going crazy because of this.

But then again, it builds up excitement for the next book, but...I HAVE TO WAIT ANOTHER YEAR?! NoOoOoO!! I guess you can see the ending as both a good thing and a bad thing, but oh, man, it hUrTs!

All in all, this book is amazing and I highly recommend it to every human being in this world. And hey, if you're in Mars or Jupiter or are orbiting the Earth in a spaceship, I recommend it to you too. Anything Shannon writes is amazing. Anyone disagree? Good. ;-)

With all of that being said, here's my rating. (It's quite predictable)


It is my favorite book as of right now and I've yet to find something that has beaten Shannon and her amazing writing skills. Can't wait for Lodestar to come out! It seems that each book in the series is better than the last! 

Thank you so much for joining me for MMGM and I hope you have a nice week! :-)
