Behold--the gorgeous LODESTAR cover!!!!!!! And the plot description!!!! And official release date!!!!!

As you can tell from that exclamation mark heavy title, I have ALL THE EXCITING THINGS for you today.

And like always, I'm not going to bother saying much right now because I know you're only here for one reason. So go on. Scroll down. Check out the AMAZINGNESS that is the LODESTAR cover.









....








....








....










TA DA!!!!



I swear, every year I think there's no way they can top my previous covers. And somehow they ALWAYS do. I mean, look at Sophie's face! She's like, BRING IT ON--I'VE GOT THIS. *sniffles* My little girl is so brave.

And yeah, I'm sure you have LOTS of questions. Most of which I won't be able to answer. But I'll cover a few.

~ That is Sophie, Fitz, and Tam on the cover 
(OMG ISN'T TAM CUTE???)

~ Yes, everyone that isn't shown on the cover will still be in the book for all kinds of awesome scenes.

~ No, I will not tell you who the black-cloaked figure is. Or what exactly is going on. Or where they are. Or what is happening. Or anything else about the plot of the book.


BUT. I can share the official flap copy:

Dark schemes unfold--and Sophie's loyalty is pushed to the limit--in this thrilling fifth book in the best-selling KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES SERIES. 
Sophie Foster is back in the Lost Cities--but the Lost Cities have changed. The threat of war hangs heavy over her glittering world, and the Neverseen are wreaking havoc.   
The lines between friend and enemy have blurred, and Sophie is unsure whom to trust. But when she's warned that the people she loves most will be the next victims, she knows she has to act.  
A mysterious symbol could be the key--if only she knew how to translate it. Every new clue seems to lead deeper into her world's underbelly and the Black Swan aren't the only ones who have plans. The Neverseen have their own Initiative, and if Sophie doesn't stop it, they might finally have the ultimate means to control her. 


Oh, and one more thing I can share. The release day! 

LODESTAR goes on sale 11/1/16!

In fact, it's already up for pre-order on amazon (and all the other websites will be adding it soon. Amazon is always first for some weird reason)

(and yes, there will be another pre-order giveaway. Official details won't be posted until October--but all pre-orders count. So you're welcome to order anytime. In fact, I'll love you ever-so-much for doing so.) :)


**And before I leave you to go back to staring at the gorgeousness, I'm going to end with a plea. I work very very hard to keep this website spoiler free, since I want it to be a safe space for all of my readers, even those who haven't had a chance to read the full series yet. So I KNOW you're going to want to leave comments trying to guess what's going on in this amazing cover. But PLEASE keep those comments spoiler free. (And no, putting something like *SPOILERS BELOW* and then including a ton of spoilers doesn't work.) You can have those discussions lots of other place. But not here. My website is a "Spoiler Free Zone" and I *will* delete any comments that include even the slightest hint of a spoiler, okay? Thank you in advance for being the awesome, enthusiastic, respectful readers I know you can be.**

Okay, now go back and ogle the shiny cover of amazingness. And I'll get back to writing the book!

  3. OOOOOOOOO! I didn't know it was possible to top the Neverseen cover, but here it is!!!!! Definitely my favorite yet.

    Sophie is so AWESOME! She's been kind of passive in the previous covers, but now she looks like "POWERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!"

    Also, her outfit. Love the dress.

    My favorite part? Sophie's fighting in high heels. (Sure they are wedges, but still.) Those boots, that dress.

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nov 1st is getting marked down with sparkly pink ink and alicorn stickers!

  12. It's the same artist, btw. Using the same style. We just decided that since a decent amount of time has passed since book 1, the characters would look a little older. (And Fitz isn't upside down and falling this time, so that's why there's different hair)

      Btw, I'm am a full supporter of Team Keefe and Team Foster-Keefe! But I do agree they should wait a little while to date.

    3. I'm just going to ignore the fact that you spelled Keefe wrong,but anyway you really should root for those two. They're perfect together.
      Oh and Madam Shannon please ,PLEASE! (on my knees right know) I beg of you, let Sophie end up with Keefe, or I will dissolve into a puddle of despair. (I'm serious I will literally turn into a puddle, and my essence will haunt you If Sophie doesn't end up with Keefe, NO JOKE!)

  16. This is GORGEOUS! The covers get better and better every book! I have a few theories about the cloaked figure...and they relate to that force field that seems to be blocking Tam and Fitz from reaching Sophie. I can't wait until November!

    ReplyDelete
  17. AHHHH ITS SO AMAZING AND I LOVE IT SOOOOOO MUCH

    ReplyDelete
  18. OH MY GOSH! Why can't it be out right now! I'm SOPHITZ ALL THE WAY but Fitz actually doesn't look as cute as I thought he would be... Tam looks better than him in my opinion. I hope the cloaked figure isn't who I think it is... Three things threw for me for a loop.

    1) LIGHTNING FROM FITZS' HANDS!!! When did that happen?! 2) It looks like there is a force field around Fitz and Tam. Wonder who's making that... 3) SINCE WHEN DOES SOPHIE WEAR A DRESS!! I love how it looks on her though. Love those boots too!

    Anyway, I'm just so excited for it to come out and can't wait!!!*sobbing* "why do I have to wait?!" UGHHH! I really hope Sophie tells Fitz about you know what... Shannon I absolutely love your books and am about to read the SKY FALL series. Hoping its as good as KOTLC... Just wanted to thank you about all the time and commitment you put into these books and hope that this isn't your last book because if it is I don't know how I'll survive!

    Thanks for everything,
    Your #1 fan.

    1. The oddness of Fitz's face might have something to do with the expression he's wearing. I still think he is ABSOLUTELY beautiful though!

      Delete
    2. Yeah, true. I think he just looks so disgusted with who the cloaked figure is that that his face isn't as perfect as usual. It looks he is trying to get out of the force field. Only Sophie is outside of it. Wondering what THAT means...

      Delete
    3. Yup--it's a combo of the crazy light from the forcefield and the fact that he's less-than-happy in that moment that are giving him a less pristine kind of appearance. But that's how the covers always are. They're supposed to look more like a still photo of the moment, rather than a glamour shot And actually, what Sophie's wearing are leggings and a really long tunic, just like the other outfits we've seen before. This is just the first standing upright, full-body pose we've ever seen

      Delete
    4. Omg I totally agree IT IS GORGOUS!!!! But I think that is Fitz pressing his hand against the force field. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO WAIT?!?!?!?!?!?!?! MUST. (Wheeze) HAVE. (Gasp) FIFTH. (Wail) BOOK!!!! (Collapse)

      Delete
    5. Ohhh.... So that's why Fitz looked a little unrecognizable in the cover.... STILL I agree completely... he looks beatufil!!! And OMG TAM LOOKS SO CUTE!!!!!!! GOSH I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE BOOK TO COME OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM LITERALLY DYING CAUSE I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE BOOK TO RELEASE!!!!!! I LOVE ALL YOUR BOOKs SHANNON(Can I call you that?)!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR WRITING THEM!!!!!!!!!!

  19. First off--Fitz's eyes! Whoa dude. Second--HIS HAIR. Oh my god. And then TAM!!! Everyone has awesome hair! I'm dying to know who the Neverseen person is!!!!!!!!

    Replies
    1. I think it is either that guy that Sophie was looking for in Neverseen-remember, he is a Psionipath! Or, it's someone that we haven't met. I mean, look at Sophie's face! Do you think she would be looking that way on any other certain someones? And, doesn't it look like Fitz is trying to break out of the force field? Unless Tam is holding him back...

      Delete
    2. I know who you're talking about...that's what I was thinking too...AHHH!!! So many theories!

      Delete
    3. The Psionipath would explain the force field!

      Delete
    4. SO.
      I really hope that that cloaked figure isn't that ONE y'know who mean, right. Someone needs to make another website for ramblings of predictions XD. I CANNOT WAIT THAT LONG FOR LODESTAR TO COME OUT!!!!

      Delete
    5. It kind of looks like Sophie is generating the force field. Her hand is extended toward the force field, and the figure in black does not even have his hand up.

      Delete
    6. I think the flashes of light near Fitz's hand is actually him trying to escape the force field.

      Delete
    7. I gotta say Tam was quite a welcomed surprise. The referring him to a k-pop idol really got me hooked ;)

      Delete
  20. Oh my gosh it's gorgeous. They look so grown up! And let me just say, Sophie's outfit is amazing, I legit want it. Anyways, the whole Fitz and Tam shooting lightning out of their hands? I'm intrigued. A lot of people seem to be saying that it looks like a force field around Tam and Fitz. At first I thought it was just electricity in the air, but I can see it as a force field. Maybe the cloaked figure is a Psionipath? Or maybe a Psionipath (I hope that's the right spelling/word) is just there but not on the cover, because I'm kind of thinking that cloaked figure is a certain someone... Anyone who's read Neverseen will pry know who I'm talking about. Although, I'm curious. I've been imagining the book with a purple spine. I'm wondering if it will be purple or another color. Anyways, this cover is so gorgeous, and I cannot wait for Lodestar to come out! (I'm so used to typing "Can't wait for Neverseen!" that I almost put that, xD.

  34. That cover is beautiful! Ab-so-lute-ly AMAZING! I'm already trying to imagine the cover with flaps on a thick book. I CANNOT wait for November. Let me edit something - I can wait for November. I CANNOT wait for LODESTAR! The cover is so beautiful! Is this going to be the LAST book? Hopefully NOT, because then it'd say something like "in this stunning conclusion of KOTLC" or "last installment".
    Lodestar-Lodestar-Lodestar-Lodestar-Lodestar!
    Keep up the good work, Shannon!
    Thank you for writing! Because how would we survive without KOTLC?
    Good question. We wouldn't.
    That cover I think is the best. I keep on scrolling up to look at it!

    And Tam....Gosh...
    And Fitz's eyes.... They're so....

    Anyways,will there be a book 5? If there will be,I'd recommend Dex on it. I mean,come on. We haven't seen him since book one!
    So,yeah. In case you're reading this,I hope you notice my recommendation! :D
    Keep on shining,be amazing and being the aspiring author we all know!

  38. If you look closely, there's a small bit of light next to Tam's hand. Maybe Fitz and Tam are trapped inside the force field? And Sophie is left to battle Mr. Neverseen? That sorta explains why Fitz's hand is against the barrier - maybe he's trying to get out.

    1. I noticed that as well. It also looks like fire or electricity or someting is coming up from the bottom of the force field. As you said there IS some little ball of electricity in Tam's hand. Almost like he is holding the top of the force field. I don't see Tam's Shadow so I'm wondering if he (Mr.Neverseen) is blocking it somehow...

  43. At first I liked Tam when we didn't know who he was. He was helpful and mysterious. Perfect. Then we figured out who he was and I didn't like him as much. Especially when Linh was doing all her weird water-bending tricks and it felt like Fitz was starting to like her. Then I hated the whole family. Cause SOPHITZ HAS TO HAPPEN! But then I saw the cover... Tam is much cuter than I Thought he would be. And I liked him again. So good job Shannon you have officialy changed my opinion. AGAIN.

    2. IKR! I really liked the twins, but when Fitz started eyeing Lihn, I was like, "Okay, I officially hate her." It's weird, too, because I'm a Foster-Keefe fan. Oh, the joy of a girl's love life. XD Also, I know it's not Lihn's fault that Fitz likes her, but I was kinda hoping she would fall for Keefe and get totally CRUSHED when he rejected her. I know, I know, it's cruel. But.... All's fair in love and war! *evil laugh*

    3. SOPHITZ is a much better name than KEEFIE. It's not that I don't like Keefe. I just think Sophie is meant to be with a guy that understands her and knows all her secrets so that he can share her burdens and maybe release some stress. Who better to do that then Sophie's Cognate! Keefe is great and awesome and hilarious, but I think he could be much better with Biana. Plus, Sophie has more of a past with Fitz.

      Delete
    4. I just realised that if Sophie and Fitz were Cognates that maybe that wouldn't be good for a romantic relationship? Because what if he took her on a date for ice cream and she hated ice cream and had to tell him so they could remain Cognates. And Fitz was really hurt cuz he ha to use a forbidden crystal to get it and would lose his job if anyone found out. And I really think that the only reason that Sophie has a crush on Fitz is because he was the first elf she saw and it would be like seeing a (cute) boy for the first time at 13. This is coming from a TEAMKEEFEFOREVERANDEVERANDEVER!!!! YAY! kind of person... So it's really just a thought not a fact. ;)

      also the matchmakers might not pair sophie and fitz cus they are both telepaths, but then again they might.

      i think it should be keefe and biana, sophie and fitz and dex and linh.

      i want linh to break fitz's heart and go to dex cuz sophie and fitz are perfect together, then linh has to come along with her water tricks and it feels like fitz is always staring at her... so i hope she breaks his heart.

  47. First of all: I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS BOOK TO COME OUT!!! I AM SO EXCITED!!!!
    And also: Is it possible that Sophie created the force field to protect Fitz and Tam? It was hinted that she might have more powers

    1. Possible - but doesn't it sort of look like Tam and Fitz are trying to get out?

      Yeah, I think so, because one of her hands is positioned in front of the force field, like she created it to protect Tam and Fitz. But her other hand is directed at the Neverseen person like she's going to attack him while she defends the others. Maybe Tam and Fitz are trying to break out of the shield in order to confront Mr. Neverseen with her(because they don't want her to face the Neverseen guy alone and maybe because they either hate or are angry with the Neverseen guy.) Either that or the Neverseen figure or someone not shown with him on the cover is making the shield and Sophie is trying to break it to free Tam and Fitz. And I think maybe she doesn't necessarily hate Mr. Neverseen. Maybe she possibly is just angry with him(if he's who I think he is) and feels like she may need to defend herself because of what he has become. (In which case she would have possibly created the shield so Fitz and Tam wouldn't try to strangle the person Mr. Neverseen might be) What do you guys think about my theory?

      Delete
    3. I think you are right about her not hating the Neverseen person, she looks more mad than scared. And even if she didn't make the force field, she is defiantly still trying to protect Fitz and Tam, who it turn want to get out of the force field to protect her.

    4. Huh i agree with the first anonymus. I never thought of that

  48. You know how Fitz sort of stares at Linh? And he sort of likes her? Well I totally hope Linh breaks Wonderboy's heart and goes to Dex instead. Dex - he's not even nobility. And I totally think Linh's talent and Dex's talent will work well together. Then Fitz, I dunno, reacts nicely and gallant, etc. etc. I mean, I want Sophie to be happy. I want her to be with everyone! I'm okay if she doesn't go to Dex, as long as Dex is happy with someone else. Because Dex Happiness is super important. Then it's up to Sophie/Shannon Messenger to decide who Sophie goes with.

    1. YASSSS! Before I had no idea who I wanted Dex to be with. Cause I had SOPHITZ, KIANA and... DARELLA? I couldn't think of anyone for Dex except for Marella. Plus, I really don't want Fitz to be with Linh... So this is PERFECT!

      Delete
    2. That makes it Dinh or Lex (but isn't that one of Dex's brothers?). I'm totally in disagreement about SOPHITZ and KIANA. Shannon Messenger will decide! So let us leave it AT THAT!

    3. I think that Dex-Lihn sounds great but Sophizt is AWSOME.

  49. Keefe+Sophie are perfect because....
    A)they both feel each others pain and are not quick to judge each other
    B)they both try to comfort each other
    C)my opinion-the good girl and bad boy how are they not perfect
    D)Sophie is uptight (and she rightfully should be because of events in her life)and Keefe is reckless and could show Sophie how to have a good time
    E)they both make a better team than Sophie and Fitz because they under one another better again my opinion
    F)they are both loyal to their friends and they both are good with animals like Silverny
    Overall Keefe and Sophie have a better connection.ps-these are just my thoughts it's the brilliant Shannon's choice I just wanted to share my thoughts.Oh and one last thing
    SHANNON U ARE AN AMZING AUTHOR

  55. I was re-reading Exile today and I realized Lodestar is a mirror in the Silver Tower that reflects pure light,(I'm sorry I hope that's not too big of a spoiler) so the Lodestar Initiative of the Neverseen probably has something to do with lighting the way forward or something. Maybe since light can hurt Sophie it is a way to hurt her?

    3. Well, the tricky thing is, some stores have policies against bringing books from home as opposed to buying them at the event, or they'll require you to buy at least one book in order to get the signing ticket (since they're going to quite a lot of trouble to have the author there, and are doing it in the hopes of getting sales) So that's something you'd want to check with the store since they're all different about that--and it's always a good idea that if you do go to a signing and bring a book from home, that you buy something from the store to make sure you're supporting them, even if it's a book by a different author or a small toy or just *something*. They are a business after all.) :)
