Back off Keefoster shippers. FITZPHIE FOR LIFE

I am a huge keeper fan, but this book (and legacy, the book after it) was terrible. There was nothing added to the main plot, the whole book was just a side plot, and (SPOILER) the only large threat in this book was eliminated at the end. The book just felt like Shannon Messenger's desperate attempt to keep pumping out a book per year. This series has a special place in my heart, and so much potential, but this book just wasn't good.

Wow, it was great! Who here cringed when the shadowflux was tearing into Sophie and Fitz? And who else sometimes just wants to give these people a big hug? Especially Keefe??
edited: And everyone noticed how sad he was when he told Sophie that Fitz told him everything, right? He was so, so sad and trying not to show it. SOPHIE JUST SEE THE TRUTH!!!

Ok so I liked Flashback a lot, but all the time Sophie spent in the healing center kinda seems pointless to me, but wtvr. Also I kinda hate Fitz right now because like he's really mushy and he seems too proud to continue his relationship with Sophie just because of the whole matchmaking deal. Buuut that said, now keefoster can like sooo get on with it because I've been waiting for that to happen for sooo long!! Also I totally agree with violet_wolf_644 about the series being like Harry Potter, and I kinda feel like Messenger's read HP and is kind of incorporating some of it's qualities into KOTLC without realizing it but wtvr still a good series and a good book

Omigosh! I absolutely love this series! One of my friends suggested it to me, and I’ve been absolutely hooked!

I loved this book, and have read the whole thing at least 7 times. It was one of my favorite books in the whole series. My only disappointment was that more than half of the book happened in the healing center, and it was a bit boring. Overall though, I think this book was good, even though someone on Sophie's team went and joined the Neverseen. (It's not Keefe because Keefe spends this whole book making jokes(and being awesome)) Only time in this book when I actually wanted to break in Shannon's house and ask for answers was the cliffhanger, so just be prepared. I am team Fitzphie, (#TeamFitzphie4eva) so I didn't mind the Fitzphie parts. (No offence to you Sokeefe shippers. I still think Keefe is awesome.)

""Nothing bad," Alden assured him. "I'm just hoping you'll be willing to attend the Tribinal today."
Ro groaned. "Noooooooooo! Then I have to go, and everyone's going to be all smug and sparkly and give boring speeches about how brilliant they are - and I'm not even allowed to stab anybody!"" - Flashback

"So Sophie asked Gethen, "Nobody could think of an easier way to get into Everglen? I can think of five off the top of my head."
"And they all take, like, two minutes, right?" Keefe asked her.
"Probably less," Sophie corrected.
Vespera shrugged, knocking one of her golden sleeves off her shoulder. "If someone is willing to jump through ridiculous hoops to prove their loyalty, who am I to stop them? Alvar created the plan himself."
Keefe turned back to the eldest Vacker. "So, wait. You said, 'Hey, I know! Why don't you slice me up with a shamkniv - '"
"That was his punishment for the problem he created," Vespera corrected, "which I was very generous to allow him a chance to redeem himself for."
"Sure," Keefe agreed, rolling his eyes. "Full body torture seems like a totally reasonable punishment for . . . What was the problem again? A locked gate?"" - Flashback

"Fitz stared at her for a long second, then at each of his friends, before finally resting on Sophie. "If I let him go," he whispered, "we're going to regret it."
"Maybe," she admitted. "But if you kill him, we'll regret it more. Even you."" - Flashback

"Yes," said Tam immediately. "Because we're not responsible for what they do. Only what we do."" - Flashback

"No one goes off alone, no matter the circumstances, Magnate Leto continued. Especially you, Miss Vacker. Vanish if you wish, but stay near some of your friends. And if you see anything suspicious, set off one off these. He passed around a sack of what looked like tiny silver marbles, and they each grabbed a handful. The Council distributed them to everyone so they won't be suspicious, but yours are the only ones that flash purple so we'll be able to - "
Purple sparks crackled at his feet, making him stumble back.
