EVERBLAZE Cover Revealed!!!!!!

I know I made you guys wait an EXTRA long time for this one--but once you scroll down and see the awesomeness I'm sure you'll agree that it was worth the wait.

And I know there's no point in saying anything else because you've already skipped over this to see the shiny so....

TA DA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It might be a *little* hard to tell because he's upside down (and yanno, sorta falling from a burning tower...) but that boy, dear readers, is Fitz.

FITZ!!!!

*stares at the amazing teal eyes*


So now we have all three boys represented on the covers. Words cannot explain how giddy this makes me. 

And  I *know* showing you this cover is going to raise a bunch of questions, so I'm going to try to cover them here:


When does EVERBLAZE come out???The current scheduled release date is 11/4/14. Less than six months to go--WOO!!!!!!! 
Can you tell us something about the plot???Um... not yet. BUT SOON.  
Is EVERBLAZE the last book in the series???Well .... this is another question I can't answer yet. But again: SOON.
Does this mean there are a lot of Fitz scenes in the book????
Yes! Though there are also lots of Dex scenes and Keefe scenes and even quite a few Biana scenes, plus all your other favorite characters. EVERBLAZE is a rather long book. I'm not entirely sure how many pages it will be once it's all typeset, but it's longer than EXILE, so... a lot! And I love it. And it's FINALLY DONE. I can't wait for you guys to read!!!!!


If you haven't added EVERBLAZE to your Goodreads shelf, you can do that HERE.

And if you would like to preorder, here's a few handy links:
amazon 
barnes & noble
Books-A-Million
iTunes
Indiebound
The Book Depository

Okay, I think that covers everything. I hope you guys love the cover as much as I do!

And now, I'm going to scroll back up and KEEP STARING AT THE INCREDIBLENESS!!!!

    If there's one thing that I have to say about the cover it would be...
    COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY AWESOME FLIPPIN SAUCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    And I don't usually say this kinda stuff, but it's really necessary.
    Fitz is hot. I guess I am a lot like Sophie. And I have other connections too that are so look freaky.

    Shannon you should keep the series going like Rick Riordan does in the Heroes of Olympus.
    You also need to make a Foxfire shirt so we can all wear it like BOSSES(that we are)!!!!!!

    1. Hold on I gotta stop freaking out right now, because this is the closest I gotten to talking to an author!! (Turns on Saint Raymond ok I'm good)
      So Shannon. I have whipped up another blog for us Keepers to rave and rant on. It has stuff like theories you know, stuff your awesome blog already has. I really hope that's ok with you...

    2. I know--I'm sorry for the delay. I write the books as fast as I can, but they're so long and intense that there's no way to avoid a one year gap. But I hope it'll be worth the wait! :)

  17. Love the cover! Hope it isn't the last, I absolutely adore the series!

  18. HOLY CRUD CAKES THIS IS SO AMAZE

    I'm listening to the Exile audiobook and this plus that has made my day perfect. Even though I'm sick.

    LONGER THAN EXILE? YEAH!!!! WOOT WOOT!!!!

    I will settle down with some hot chocolate and that book when it comes out and READ READ READ

    LESS THAN 6 MONTHS YEAH *holds a party*

    1. Hope you get better : )
      I hate Bering sick...except for the fact that you get to read all day!!!!! WHOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2. Aw, hope you're feeling better. But listening to the EXILE audiobook sounds like an excellent way to spend the day. :D

      Delete
    3. It's 6 months, two weeks, and 3 days (5 when you posted) away. That's why I try to wait until enough of a series is out before starting - these year(s) long gaps are too long. And I realize there's no way to shorten that gap, which is why I prefer not to read a series until I can do most of it at one time. On the other hand, waiting a year or so is better than never getting the next book in a series (which has happened to me in two different series).

      Delete
    4. Yeah, it's a tricky, tricky thing. Readers read way faster than writers write, so there's always a delay. But the sad thing is, publishing likes to wait to see how the early books sell, before they'll decide if they should make more. So if readers decide to wait for the whole series to come out? That might mean the series gets cut short (which might be what happened with those other series you mentioned). That's why authors are SO INCREDIBLY GRATEFUL to our early fans, who take a chance on our books when our series are just beginning and wait so patiently for the next books to come out. If we didn't have you guys, we wouldn't get to write more books for you to love. :)

  20. Shannon,
    Why am I commenting again? I don't know.
    I was showing this to my best guy friend (he A LOT like Dex) because he currently does not blog yet. And of course, he's read KEEPER.
    But I wanted him to see it so much, I had to pull it up at school and actually show to him.
    His response to this jaw dropping cover: "Holy crud...THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!!"
    Anyway, congrats to your awesomeness of writing. I really look up to you these days. And I'm not just saying that. I'm trying to be an author. :{D Thanks!!!!

    1. You got it backwards. Sophie's eyes are brown and everyone else's are blue.
      I'm so happy this one is going to be longer. XDXDXDXDXDXDXDXDXDXD

    2. LOL, yup. Aarathyn's right. Sophie is the only brown-eyed one, among a sea of blue eyed people. Plus a few with spectacular teal eyes. ;)

    2. Ha! Never noticed that, but you're right!

    3. they could be twins!!!!! O.O ignoring the fact that Peyton already has a twin brother spencer, well I guess they could be triplets

      Delete
    4. they'd make a great set of triplets, except Peyton is 16 years old now

    2. I think Bronte is next! Because we all know Sophie has a major crush on Bronte. XD JK.

  36. This. Cover. Omigods. I will not be able to sleep until Everblaze comes out.
    Suggestions:
    1) Make a fourth book with Sophie and all 3 boys on the cover (This would be epic!)
    2) Make all three boys kiss her at some point (so everybody gets their Sophie-? scene)
    3) Make her go on an adventure with all three boys where she does everything and they are absolutely NO HELP AT ALL because they are too busy being jealous of each other.

    2. I really hope it's Fitz. He was the first one who met her

      Delete
    3. FINALLY SOMEONE AGREES!!! Not that I don't like Keefe. I signed out Dex too because , well as Anonymous August 14th said, they're basically cousins. But really, it's harder to find team Fitz members them team Keefe members.

      Delete
    4. That's a hard one. I mean I like team Keefe the best, but I hope it's Fitz.
      STILL, KING KEEFE is the BEST!

  38. I know everybody says this but I CAN NOT WAIT! It really is funny how every time I see this , I freak out like I did the first ti.e I saw it. And yes I was staring at his eyes too! Now is one of those times I wish the doctor was here so he could wisk me away to the future so O could read this now. I have like no patience for books. Wake me when it comes out.

You are a great writer and I can't wait to read this, and other books by you soon! You came to my middle school Pilgrim Park months ago and I didn't start your series write away but after I did I was hooked! Can't wait for Everblaze!!!! You are amazing!!

    how he talks to her and tell her the truth he opens up sort of.. and how he calls her cute.
    I am never going to not be a team foster-keefe fan unless something happen in EVERBLAZE od shannons foruth kotlc book

  42. I am going to blow. Oh my god I love the series. I already know its going to be my all time favorite book no matter what. And yes, I am so happy Dex is not on the cover. I like him except he keeps interfering with Sophie's and Fitz's relationship. Grrrrr... But I am so excited. The first book had the dangerous part with Dex. The second had Keefe. And now the third, I hope will have Fitz in the part with Sophie trying to escape and all that. I really hope I can read it soon
