This article is about the unreleased ninth KOTLC book. You may be looking for Book 8.5: Unlocked.

On May 22nd, 2020, Shannon Messenger announced that there will be a ninth book in the Keeper of the Lost Cities series.

It has been scheduled to release on November 8, 2022.[1] The previous book, Unlocked, was released on November 17, 2020.[2]

It will most likely include a short story, as four past books (Nightfall, Flashback, Legacy and Unlocked) have, but it has yet to be confirmed. Shannon somewhat confirms in an interview that both of Sophie's biological parents would be revealed by the tenth book. Shannon's contract was to end at the end of the ninth book, but she hinted at getting it renewed.
