The Bone Season #3 - The Song Rising - Prelude

I am very excited to have been chosen as an advocate for The Bone Season series by Samantha Shannon.

Enter here to win a copy of The Bone Season with its stunning new cover.

I love this series set in an alternate version of London, where society never moved on from Victorian morals, and where voyants, those with special abilities, are hunted.

In The Bone Season we met Paige, known as The Pale Dreamer for her ability to access the dreamscape of others. She works for Jaxon, the leader of one of London's voyant sectors which make up the criminal underworld. We also met The Rephaim, sinister beings who need the voyants for reasons of their own.

In The Mime Order Paige takes on the criminal underworld and fights to begin a revolution. The final page blew me away.

The Song Rising is still a while away, due March 2017, but the lovely people at Bloomsbury have released a sneak peak - the Prelude to The Song Rising

WARNING - if you haven't read the first two books this will spoil them for you.

My thoughts: The end of The Mime Order dropped a major bomb, and The Song Rising starts the same way. I am going to need to reread the first two books ahead of the third, and I can't wait to find out what happens next.

The Prelude is after the jump.
