Sophie and her friends face battles unlike anything they’ve seen before in this thrilling sixth book of the Keeper of the Lost Cities series.

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 Times and 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.



Nightfall is book number 6 in the Keeper of Lost Cities series, and yes, the love triangle continues, but I am not here for that. I am here to tell you how intense, scary, and on the edge of your seat I felt this book was. At the end of 5, Sophie’s human family is missing and assumed to be kidnapped by the Nightfall. So perfectly named, this one is Nightfall and the hunt to rescue Sophie’s parents while her little sister gets a glimpse of the lost cities. Their scary monsters called gorgons, an evil parent pulling all the strings, and a character we lost are back; oh my. We are one week out from book 9 in this series as I a frantically listening to these books and playing catch up. I can’t wait to discover what’s next in Flashback book 7.
