    sophie is literally so stupid i can't.there's so many flaws in this book, there's just too many and i don't have enough brain cells to make it into a coherent review.i really want to rant about how repetitive this whole series is. actually though there's literally just one group of enemies and this series has 7 books with each one being like 800 pages. okay. but i guess that's what happens when the main characters are stupid af (except linh, tam,...

    DD 13 June 2018. I want it now! Gimme my KLT fix! I don't know how this series managed to have been published under my nose without me knowing about it. I know even less how I managed to stumble upon it, ungracefully, and hardly fall in love with this world. Moarrr!💝 18 June 2018: I'm SO ready to get my hands on this one! This had better be goooood!July 2018: 5-star-prerating it: I'm invoking my right of the reader expecting the n-th sequel to...

    1.5/2(view spoiler)[- This book is over EIGHT HUNDRED PAGES. - Half of it takes place while the narrator is bedridden. - We do not get answers to even a quarter of the questions raised in this book, and we only get answers to ONE of the twenty plus lingering questions from previous books. - Keefe was shortchanged. As were Biana, Dex, and Linh. And Wylie. And all of the adult characters other than Elwin. - I have never seen romance derail a fantas...

    First to write a review! Even though none of us have read it and my page may have not of refreshed.Who else is dying of excitement????!!!!

    3 1/2 stars Every time Sophie thought his name, she could hear her human parents’ voices in her mind, explaining all the reasons she should never play with fire. And yet, here she was, stepping right back into Fintan’s game. I couldn't sleep last night because I was thinking about the last 10% of the book so much. UGH. This book is really hard to rate; the first 50% was slow and tedious, and even though Sophie and Fitz's bonding time during t...
  • J.
    .......actual rating 2.1....*Throws book across the room, and screams in horror*Oh, sweet baby Jesus, please let this series thrive.Plot: Sophie is tired of being useless, and after a major accident that almost got Fitz and her killed, she wants to fight back. Alvar is heading back to the Vacker's home, and tension rises within the group. They learn new secretes, and the alicorns come into play. Blah. Blah.*deep breathes* I hate everyone in this ...
  • Ethence
    I am aware that this definitely won't be a popular opinion and that a lot of people are gonna disagree with me but...PLEASE GIVE DEX AND BIANA MORE LOVE.I loved the book and have been in the fandom since Exile came out and I gotta say, I really loved the Keefe Sencen back in KOTLC and Exile better. From Neverseen, we can clearly see how much development Shannon has given Keefe. And I get that he has been flirting with Sophie since KOTLC and I hon...
  • Xylia
    I can't believe I've been a fan of this godforsaken series for four years.
  • Kaelyn
    QUESTIONS I *NEED* TO HAVE ANSWERED IN FLASHBACK:1. SHIPS. Who will Sophie end up with? Obviously Dex is out, but Keefe? Fitz? I don't think Tam is really in the running. Personally, I'm hoping for: Sophie x Keefe for sure, and Fitz x Linh. I'm still undecided about the rest of them. Part of me really really REALLY wants Dex x Biana to be a thing, but the rest of me thinks she'd be better with Tam, and plus, Tam seems like he likes her, and, um, ...
  • Daphne
    This is the first time I've felt a bit meh about these books, which made me sad.It was still a good book, entertaining and captivating as all the others, but there were a few things that made me less enthusiastic about the book than normal.First of all, I think the pacing in this book wasn't very good. It started pretty well, but then after some action it dragged and dragged on for a while. (view spoiler)[ The scenes in the hospital were tedious,...
  • Briana Fatovic
    I’m depressed. This was my number one most anticipated release of the year, and I was heavily let down. The first 100 pages were a solid ⭐⭐⭐. The next 600 pages ⭐. The last 100 pages ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐. And although I really don’t like Fitz as a person, I was excited to see him have to to deal with the consequences of him “killing” Alvar. I was pumped: “Finally! A main character that has somewhat negative traits other than anger!...
  • Mya Gray
    Spoilers ahead!AHHHHHHHHHHHH. THIS WAS AMAZING. SOPHITZ. HAPPENED. I have been waiting for this moment for 2 years and 3 months. I can’t even describe how happy I am. I ran around my house screaming and sobbing tears of joy. I still can’t believe it happened. I’m so glad Fitz finally told her. I was crying because I thought she was actually going to give up on him before he got to tell her. This book was so good! I love how the action start...

    ❋❋❋❋❋❋❋ Spoilers for books 1-6 (all of the books before this one) below the cut ❋❋❋❋❋❋❋(view spoiler)[Update ➜ March 25, 2018We now have a cover!!!So obviously, we have Tam, Sophie, and Wylie. Or maybe Prentence? I'm feeling it's probably Wylie, though. He really looks similar to his picture in the official art. They are all wearing cloaks that are white underneath and black on top. Sophie's cloak has a pin with what...
  • Gildie-Everblaze
    Tbh, it wasn't quite as good as the others... [Note: this spoiler is something about a ship] (view spoiler)[Honestly, the Sophitzness just seemed SO cliche and this was the first time in the whole series when Sophie was kind of getting on my nerves. I mean, she was CONSTANTLY thinking about Fitz throughout the ENTIRE book, and it's WAY too late now to develop their relationship like this. Sophie and Keefe have a SUPER strong relationship, and it ...
  • R.F. Gammon
    WELL THEN.Probably 3.75 stars (it was too long and THAT WHOLE THING AT THE END WAS NOT OKAY AT ALL, plus MY KEEFE CHILD WAS NOT IN THIS ENOUGH AND NO ONE CARES ABOUT HIM ANYMORE (view spoiler)[thanks to stupid Fitzphie (hide spoiler)]) but still really really good. Not my favorite of the series, that's all xD Buddy read with Nicole Dust!

    Shannon Messenger never disappoints!A little too much Fitzphie for my taste, but still a great read!!#teamfosterkeefe
  • Aqua
    Well, this series has hit a new low. Flashback removes everything that was still entertaining about this series and instead gives us endless discussions of logistics, medical treatments, and more Fitzphie than I can handle.So. Much. Boring. Filler.Have you ever wanted to read an extensive novel about a character in a hospital stay that details every mundane detail of their treatment? No? Me neither! And yet, early on in Flashback, Sophie and Fitz...
  • Thobe
    I can't believe I'm saying this, but, honestly, I'm a little disappointed. No, I'm a lot disappointed. There wasn't enough action and I didn't see enough of the characters. But the one thing going for it that almost made me give it more stars is that it had me emotionally involved. Like, a lot. AAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!! Like, Alvar is now one of my favorite characters. I love him a lot. I've never hated Fitz more in my life. He's brainless. And so is Sop...
  • Haley
    Ummm I’m Team Foster-Keefe....so this book really wasn’t for me. It’s was just Fitzphie Fitzphie Fitzphie. It took up half the book! This book didn’t have much action besides when the Neverseen did the shadowflux and at the end when Tam had to join the neverseen to save the Alicorns. I mean Silveny did have twins and the survived. It was a pretty good book, but I hope Sokeefe works out in the end.And I forgot but do you think Alden and Ke...
  •  Lorien Rhys ~ Live for tomorrow
    Quite honestly, I enjoyed Flashback LOADS better than Nightfall. The characters were actually busy doing something instead of standing around and twiddling their thumbs and doing absolutely nothing of importance. Really, most of the content in Nightfall could be taken out and it wouldn’t affect the story. Number one rule of writing (as deemed by my peers): if you write a scene and it won’t affect the story, take it out. That, my dears, is wha...

    Note: Direct spoilers will be hidden, but the whole of the review will contain small details about pacing and my opinions on the writing. Certain aspects of the story will be alluded to.I finally read it! I must say, it was not my favorite KotLC book. I believe there were 289 pages spent in the hospital wing, so it did drag in parts. Not that Mrs. Messenger is beginning to have a shortage of ideas, because this books brought plenty of new things ...

  • Maya W
    DEFINITELY worth the wait! Flashback did not disappoint with action, plot twists, and romance- and it didn’t hurt that the ship I’ve been rooting for finally sailed! I wish I didn’t have to wait a year for the next book!!
  • Liz F.
    *impatiently waiting for the next book*
  • Gwen Goeldner
    This is not what I was expecting. And I don't mean that in a good way. I was looking for an epic, action-packed, thrilling conclusion with a (finally) resolved ending. Flashback wasn't particularly epic, or particularly exceptional. As ashamed as I to admit this, it was actually kind of… boring. It was too long.Don't get me wrong—I love big books. Flashback was a fat tome of training, crushing, training some more, being afraid of killing peop...
