As always, Shannon's prose and world-building are splendid, but the majority of the book focuses on Sophie's physical recovery after an incident at the beginning of the book, so all in all, Flashback is more of an emotional roller-coaster than an action-packed read - think of it as a "part one" of a movie. That said, not much happens (of major "plotty" import). If only Flashback could've been combined with the contents of the next yet-to-be-published book... that would've been a far more explosive read.

Of course, where's the fun in NOT leaving the fan base hanging like that? Come for the ships and the alicorns, but stay for the major (and by then, way-overdue) cliffhanger (and I don't mean the shipping one) at the end.

I feel like the story is being dragged out. It wasn't bad. Just I think I would have like certain things to have happened that didn't happen or at least didn't happen quite the way I would have liked. Like the end... that was just a HUGE cliffhanger. They got that far!! And then it's kind of ruined. Can't wait for the next book to come out.

The Keepers of the Lost Cities series is starting to remind me of Harry Potter where things get more serious the older the characters get and I really like that. The Neverseen are getting harder to defeat and I think Sophie is gonna have to unlock powers she never knew she possessed to beat them. With her friends' help of course. And though I've never actually liked Fitz, because he's always seemed too perfect, in Flashback you get to see sides of him you didn't get to see before and it's changed my opinion of him a little. But I'm still rooting for team Foster-Kefee and wasn't that upset with the cliffhanger at the end. It actually gave me hope.

Just saying, I'm reading the book, not the eBook.

LOVE THIS BOOK SOOOO MUCH!!!!!! Yay for the alicorns and Fitzphie! Maybe Sophie spent a little to much time in the Healing Center, and maybe I'm going to DIE OF IMPATIENCE AND SUSPENSE, because it'll be a whole year before we find out what happens next! In the acknowledgments, Shannon said we were all probably plotting revenge after that ending. I am! Go Keeper of the Lost Cities!!!

I’ll go out of my to make their job impossible.”

“No, you won’t,” Sandor told her. “Youre much too smart to resort to such reckless behavior.”

Sophie’s eyebrows shot up. “You sure about that? You’ve seen how much time I spend with Keefe.

“It’s amazing he made it through without me bashing his pretty face.”

“Aw, did you hear that? Ro thinks I’m pretty! I mean- I usually go for more of a roguish handsome, but...” He tosses his hair and fluttered his eyelashes.

Sophie’s lips curled into a smile-without her permission.

Sophie flung a pillow at his head.

Or, she tried to.

Throwing with her left arm was much harder than she expect, and...

She ended up nailing Magnate Leto in the face.

Keefe doubled over, clutching his sides and gasping between choking laughs: “THAT...WAS...THE...GREATEST...THING...IVE...EVER...SEEN!
