MMGM - Lodestar by Shannon Messenger

Marvelous Middle Grade Monday

Keeper of the Lost Cities
by Shannon Messenger
Release date: November 1, 2016

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.

This is among my all-time favorite MG series.  I LOVE THESE BOOKS! I have read books 1-4 multiple times already and will likely devour book 5 this weekend. All three of my children have read them, and they each love the series as much as I do. Additionally, I have copies in my classroom, but I never see them because they are always being read. Shannon Messenger is also one of the friendliest, most generous, and utterly sincere authors I know--and the founder of MMGM! You cannot go wrong with any of her books, including her oh-so-awesome young adult series, Let the Sky Fall. But you all know that already.

Shannon Whitney Messenger decided it was time to give middle grade stories the attention they deserve, and "Marvelous Middle Grade Mondays" was born. For a full selection of MMGM posts, visit her website HERE.

I really hope I can get to the rest of this series one day soon. I loved the first two books, but she turns them out faster than i can read them! Thanks for the review.

This is a good way to promote LODESTAR without giving it away. I'm half way through it and am captivated. The story keeps moving and I can't put it down! I have debated about how to share the fifth sequel with my readers. Thank for giving some ideas.
