This gorgeously intense and fully fledged dystopian fantasy series continues in fine style with The Song Rising. Paige has risen through the ranks as she tries to combat the hell that precious few know about or even believe is forming, will the rest of the clairvoyants back or denounce her? I’m in awe at how incredibly rounded and complete this world is. The intricate layers not only ripple inwards to allow intimate access, they also begin to advance further afield, widening our viewpoint. Paige really is a role model for our times, willing to step forward for what she believes in, and although set in a reimagined England, comparisons can easily be made to the world around us. Told in the first person, I could feel Paige, rely on her, admire her, particularly when things went awry. I really didn’t want this third instalment to end, and I wait with baited breath for the next in the epic 'The Bone Season' series. The Song Rising was everything I have come to expect from Samantha Shannon, richly imagined, thrillingly exciting, and a humdinger of a read - highly recommended. ~ Liz Robinson
A dreamer who can start a revolution For the past two hundred years the Scion government has led an oppressive campaign against unnaturalness in London. Clairvoyance in all its forms has been decreed a criminal offence, and those who practise it viciously punished.

Paige Mahoney, a powerful dreamwalker operating in the Seven Dials district of London, leads a double life, using her unnaturalness illegally while hiding her gift from her father, who works for the Scion regime... This beautiful new edition includes the prequel novella, The Pale Dreamer
