The Mime Order (The Bone Season #2)
by Samantha Shannon
published by Bloomsbury
expected publication- January 2015
I received a copy of this book from the publisher through Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
When I read The Bone Season last year, I was pretty surprised by how much I liked it. It was certainly not my kind of book, a little too dystopian/sci fi for me. But I loved it, and I was very excited for a chance to read the sequel before it was published. Net Galley was very emphatic that the version I read is NOT the finalized version that will come out in January. Well, I thought it was great! It has been sometime since I read the first book, and it took me awhile to remember all the characters, especially since the names are all pretty strange. Once I got that all sorted, I was hooked just as much as I was with the first book. It is a little hard to actually summarize, but if you read and enjoyed The Bone Season, read this book. Then sit around and wonder why the third isn’t out yet! But keep in mind, this is the second in what is supposed to be a series of SEVEN books! Yeah- lots to look forward to.
Paige Mahoney has escaped the brutal penal colony of Sheol I, but her problems have only just begun: many of the fugitives are still missing and she is the most wanted person in London.
As Scion turns its all-seeing eye on Paige, the mime-lords and mime-queens of the city’s gangs are invited to a rare meeting of the Unnatural Assembly. Jaxon Hall and his Seven Seals prepare to take center stage, but there are bitter fault lines running through the clairvoyant community and dark secrets around every corner.
Then the Rephaim begin crawling out from the shadows. But where is Warden? Paige must keep moving, from Seven Dials to Grub Street to the secret catacombs of Camden, until the fate of the underworld can be decided. Will Paige know who to trust? The hunt for the dream walker is on. (from Goodreads)
I was just informed that The Mime Order will be available as an audiobook on January 27th. Here is a clip from it-
Hope you enjoy it!
