Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The stunning sequel to the amazing The Bone Season which I really recommend reading first. It starts exactly where the last book finished with the clairvoyant attempting to return to London from the penal colony of Steol I. So now a life of hiding, running, intrigue and power mongering awaits our brave narrator Paige as it seems the whole of London is after her. This is dystopian fiction with a real difference, an extremely rich world with real depth. Paige wants to overthrow the tyrannical rulers, of course, but that will be so much harder here than it often is for plucky heroines in this genre. There are so many layers to scion society, attacking the government won’t be enough. She needs to start a rebellion and probably a war. Complex, vivid and compelling, it really is the best of its kind and more so.

If you like Samantha Shannon you might also like to read books by Daniel O'Malley, Ben Aaronovitch and Daniel H. Wilson.

Synopsis

The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

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 centre 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 dreamwalker is on.

Reviews

'Fabulous, epic fantasy thriller.'

-The Times

'Dark, embattled, highly wrought fantasy ... there is no doubt that Shannon is the real thing.' - Observer

'Slick and vivid ... Gives the fantasy genre a refreshing lease of life. The Bone Season is enough to transport even hardened sceptics of the fantasy genre into its imaginative realm.'

-Metro

'A clever and courageous character, reminiscent of Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games ,gripped me to the marrow.'

-Daily Telegraph

'A rapid-fire wonder of a book.'

-Marie Claire
