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.

The raw emotions in this one are so intense, they almost made me cry. Poor Keefe :(

Omg, sooooooooo good...... But Keefe, you're starting to break my heart, and Sophie's. For those of you who have read this book, and ship Sokeefe, I'm refering to the part of the book when the gang's in Exillium, and when Sophie and Keefe are in the tent. When Keefe has consumed what he called "awesomesauce," and when he reveals a dare that made Sophie's heart tinge with jealousy. Also, I did not expect Coiffe to be who he was. And also no, I'm not going to reveal who he is, for the people who are hoping I'm going to spoil part of the story for them. Shame on u for asking!😉

Neverseen, written by Shannon Messenger, is the fourth book in her series, The Keeper of the Lost Cities. As Sophie dwells deeper into the fire that’s consuming her world, she struggles to find peace with each element in her life burning in the flames. Her journey with the Black Swan continues to surprise her as she is their saving grace, but can she accomplish what she is meant to do? The fourth installment of Shannon Messenger’s series, is another hit in my book, as many questions arise, with a minimum of answers revealed, leaves you wanting to turn the page as quickly as possible. Overall, this novel is the deal breaker of the series, as loyalties break and secrets are revealed, Neverseen is sure not to disappoint.

In this thrilling and suspenseful 4th book, new characters, secrets, and dangers will be discovered. Messenger hooks her readers in with crazy plot twists and awesome new information. And lodestar, the 5th book just came out, so don't forget to check it out! I've already started reading it and am pulling all-nighters!

The night is darkest right before dawn. That is the best description of this book I could come up with. It's basically the part of the story when the protagonist is overwhelmed. No one is who you think they are. No one can be trusted. Or can they? And you may just find out that your closest friends are even better friends than you ever thought they could be. I cannot wait for Lodestar!!
(P.S. This book is even better at the second re-read. :)

New characters. Questions that have been haunting us since the beginning are answered. Insane character development. Universe-shattering ending.
Where do I start.
Without a shadow of a doubt, this tops the last three books. And wets my tongue perpetually for Lodestar. SO GLAD it's coming out in only a month or so. Gotta hand it to Shannon, things are finally coming together and I want more. She's got her readers hooked. We *demand* answers. I will be waiting desperately for the next book.
Go get 'em, Foster.
Oh. And go Team Keefe. ;)

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Some of these scenes are a little bit dark, so readers should be at least 11 or 12. Or if your mind can handle the violence.
