Who wants to see the shiny NIGHTFALL cover????????

I'm pretty sure the answer to that question is all of you!

And we all know the drill--you're just going to skip past everything I say here and go straight to the cover, so ... scroll away!









....








....








....










BEHOLD:


!!!!!!!!

Once again, Jason Chan (the artist) has blown me away with his talent. 

LOOK AT THAT GORGEOUSNESS!!!

Sophie's outfit!
Linh's hair!
Keefe! (!!!)
The rising wave!
The circle of hand-holding!
THE GIANT BALL OF WATER!!!

(And yes, I totally geek out every time I see that "New York Times and USA Today bestseller" line on there--that's because of you guys!!)

I'm sure now that you're looking at it, you have LOTS of questions--and if they involve spoilers, sorry, I will not be answering them. But here's a few answers I can give you:
~ Yes, as I said above: that is Sophie, Linh, and Keefe on the cover     
~ Yes, this is the third time that Keefe has been on a cover. 
~ Team Keefe (or any of the other teams, really) should *not* read anything into that. 
~ Yes, I realize that some of the other characters haven't been on as many covers.
~ No, that doesn't mean I don't love those characters just as much.
~ Which characters end up on the cover is dictated by the scene that gets chosen, and in this case, the scene that was chosen happens to be a moment with Sophie, Keefe, and Linh. It's as simple as that.
 ~ Also, who doesn't want a cover with a giant water-ball on it? I'm pretty sure the answer is, "no one."
~ Yes, everyone who isn't shown on the cover will definitely be in the book as much as I can possibly squeeze them in.
~ No, I will not tell you anything else about what's happening in the scene, or anything else about the plot of the book. 
~ Yes, I am--in fact--still writing the book. But don't worry, this scene will for sure be in there.  :) 
~ And no, I really really really can't tell you what's happening in this scene (so please don't ask). All I can do is share the official flap copy again, in case you missed it when I posted this a few weeks back: 

Sophie Foster is struggling. Grieving. Scrambling. But she knows one thing: she will not be defeated.

The Neverseen have had their victories—but the battle is far from over. It’s time to change tactics. Make sacrifices. Reexamine everything. Maybe even time for Sophie to trust her enemies.

All paths lead to Nightfall—an ominous door to an even more ominous place—and Sophie and her friends strike a dangerous bargain to get there. But nothing can prepare them for what they discover. The problems they’re facing stretch deep into their history. And with time running out, and mistakes catching up with them, Sophie and her allies must join forces in ways they never have before.

In this spectacular sixth book in the New York Timesand USA TODAY bestselling Keeper of the Lost Cities series, Sophie must uncover the truth about the Lost Cities’ insidious past, before it repeats itself and changes reality.


Oh, and one more thing I can share. The current official release day! (which could change since, you know, I'm still writing the book--but hopefully not!) 


NIGHTFALL goes on sale 11/7/17!


It's even up for pre-order on amazon (and other websites will be adding it soon. Amazon is always first--don't ask me why--and then the others follow)

(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, you'll have my eternal love and devotion if you do because pre-orders are super helpful to authors)

And... I guess that's it. I'm not even sure if any of you are bothering to read this or if you've already scrolled up to stare at the amazingness. BUT, in case you are reading it, I'm going to end with a super-important plea: PLEASE help me keep this website spoiler free.

I *know* you're going to want to leave comments speculating about what you think might be happening. But PLEASE make sure that if you do that, what you say doesn't give away any spoilers for the previous books. (And no, putting something like *SPOILERS BELOW* and then including a ton of spoilers doesn't make it okay.) I'm not trying to be mean--I just have to be fair to all of my readers, and there are many who are excited to see the cover even though they're still catching up on reading the books.

If you want to have spoiler-y discussions, please do it on your own instagrams/tumblrs/goodreads groups/blogs, etc. This website is a No-Spoiler Zone. So I *will* have my assistant delete any comments that include even the slightest hint of a spoiler. Thank you in advance for being the awesome, respectful readers I know you can be.



And now, I'd better get back to writing the book!!! November 7th isn't that far away!!!!!

    1. I am dying from the wait, Lodestar was bad enough, but now..... I can't feel with it. I actually cried when I finished Lodestar, just because of the fact that it was over. Since then I have read it four times, trying to pick up every little detail, and look up every reference. But still, I'm so sad.But like Mrs Messenger said, November will sneak up on us. It'll be hear before you know it. Hopefully. :(

    2. I agree. The wait is (almost) too painful to bear.

      Delete
    3. Both! I squeal every time I see the cover. I think it's a medical condition. But then, after I'm done squealing, I fall to my knees and cry because it's not coming out until November.

    2. Jason Chan does the drawing, and if you like the Keepers, then you'd probably like another book Jason did the cover for. It's called Winterling by Sarah Prineas. They aren't as good as the Keepers but still good books. :)

    3. Omg! YES! I LOVED those books. True, KOTLC is better, but if you like KOTLC, you would defiantly like the Winterling series.

    The cover's beautiful! Linh's so pretty, and I love how they all look a little older, and that they have a cool wardrobe change! I know you said you can't answer spoiler questions but I thought this one over and I'm hoping it doesn't count as one. Mrs. Messenger: of the three Team Keeper characters on the cover, Sophie and Keefe are the only ones who are floating, and Lin's feet are planted firmly on the ground...or I guess more accurately in or on the water from what I can see. I have a few guesses, but I have to ask: is this an effect of the place or is this being caused by a character? Sorry if I asked for an answer that can't be revealed yet.

    1. Sophie and Keefe could be levitating

      Delete
    2. That's what I think to! And if we're wrong then Mrs Messenger might be really happy, cause she'd have a big secret up her sleeve. :)

      Delete
    3. I'm assuming it's because of her ability. She has more control.

      Delete
    4. YES!YES!YES! when you look at the cover closely you see that they are hovering over the water.

    Ack! Sorry! I reread your rules again after scrolling up to look at the cover again after I posted my comment, and saw the part about not answering ANYTHING at all about the scene. Sorry about that, I was a little too quick to comment.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love your cover, in fact I love all of Jason Chan's art! I totally agree with you Mrs Messenger. And Natalie you are right I wonder why John's feet are planted. Maybe Sophie and Keefe are levitating, or maybe it has something to do with NIGHTFALL. I don't know, but I do know that it's awesome!!!!
    Mrs Messenger I have read you books, or at least the Keeper of the lost cities, hundreds of times (I'm not kidding, ask my sister). Sooooo cool!!!!!

I love going back to my favorite parts in all the books and rereading them again and again. I FINALLY got my sister to read it and I can't wait for her to start soon.

    1. Ya, I wish all of them together would be on a cover, don't you? But I guessed that Keefe would be on this one. It's been back and forth from Fitz and Keefe since book two. And LOL to your ring around the rosy thing! It's awesome! I wonder why he smiling? Could it be that he's leading Sophie and Lihn into a trap?

    2. Maybe on the last book, the whole gang will be on the cover?!

    3. No! There should never be a last book. Because Sophie is an elf, and elves have indefinite lifespans, and because in books like these, good always prevails and the main character stays alive, so Sophie shall live forever!!!!!!!!

    2. Ditto. Shannon Messenger, your books are amazing and I am (figuratively, possibly actually)dying waiting for each book to come out, but everyone needs to sleep(including you and Sophie). Take a short break, because you can't write an awesome Shannon Messenger Keeper of the Lost Cities books if you are to sleep deprived to get good ideas. And no, the next thing Sophie should battle is NOT insomnia.

      TEAM DEX! THE UNDER APPRECIATED CINNAMON ROLL!!!

      Delete
    6. Dex is is a cinnamon roll, Linh is too, Tam is her overprotective "big" brother, even though they are twins, Fitz is Mr. Perfect to everyone but himself, Sandor is flat-out overprotective but awesome, Biana is girly get-down-and-dirty, and Sophie... is, well, Sophie! There are no words in the English language to accurately describe her. Maybe there are some in the Enlightened language. And Keefe, well, let's put it this way: HE LEFT SOPHIE TO JOIN THE NEVERSEEN. Even if he was "spying" or whatever, it was too dangerous and he is the most unstable of them all and I am uncapable of fully forgiving him. (but he doesn't deserve to be stuck in Exile for all of eternity with a broken mind like the rest of the Neverseen.) But he most certainly does not deserve Sophie for his actions. He's like the guy you fall in love with, but he just keeps leaving you and coming back and you don't know how it is going to end. Basically LOVE everyone but Neverseen(including Keefe) and maybe Lord Cassius. Bronte is awesome too. Some of the Councillors are a little wacky. But I ship Sophitz.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Lihn has a foxfire cape on so her and Tam obviously went back to foxfire.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If those are Foxfire capes, that doesn't necessarily mean that Tam went back too. He is more rebellious to government than Linh is. And even so, we don't know that those are actually Foxfire capes, if they were wearing their Foxfire capes, they would probably be wearing their uniforms too, and those aren't uniforms. Secondly, Foxfire capes are elbow length, and those are way longer. I don't think this means they are officially in the nobility though, I think they usually just wear capes like that because that was what their capes were like on previous covers. Also, their capes are billowing out but they are not underwater, so I think 1) They are moving quickly 2) There is a gust of wind blowing their capes up 3) If it is wind, maybe it is a Guster, maybe even Sophie(But that is a wild speculation there, mind you.).

  43. Just want to throw it out there: I think Sandor or one of the goblins should be on one of the covers. And no offense to Shannon, but do any of you agree that one more terrible cliffhanger will be enough to get her a Tribunal and make some of us want to send her to Exile, as much as we love and rely on her work in order to live?

  54. I NEED TO READ NIGHTFALL!!! November 7 is 8 MONTHS away and I don't think I can wait that long!
    The covers just seem to get better and better with each book! I love them all and I-- most of all-- love you and your writing Shannon! When I saw the cover I think I scared my dad with my bouncing in my chair and squealing about the beautifulness of the cover.
    I think that he knows that I'll need mental help someday or something... oh well. I'll just learn to live with it, and I won't be able to wait 8 MONTHS!!!!!
