Review

An ebullient, gloriously complicated fantasy ... The characters feel grippingly real. Shannon unravels her tangled tale in galloping prose ***** (Daily Telegraph)

Like treasures unearthed by mudlarks, Samantha Shannon's alternative world is studded with fabulous language ...With a sharp eye on the politics of identity, Shannon transports us into a world where the oppressed are pitted against one another in the struggle for survival ... Explosive (Daily Mail)

Easily the most politically engaged of any of the contemporary dystopian fantasies . Ever since HG Wells' The War Of The Worlds there has been a slight aversion to looking at the global consequences of such dystopias and Shannon seems to be taking that wider view . There is so much intrigue and escapade, character development and imagination here . We have four books to go. I am more than willing to wait (Scotland on Sunday)

The third book sees feisty heroine Paige Mahoney take on the dangerous role of Underqueen, ruling over London's criminal population (Daily Express)

PRAISE FOR THE MIME ORDER: "A riveting page-turner . She creates a convincing world defined by its own invented logic (Mail on Sunday)

It goes hell-for-leather, all poltergeists and grisly murders and pitched battles in the catacombs of Camden (Sunday Times)

Thrusting readers back into the world of Paige and a more detailed journey through future London. The novels are hugely imaginative ... Part Hunger Games dystopia, part urban fantasy (Independent on Sunday)

A triumphant blend of Orwellian dystopia and China Miéville nonconformity ... Shannon's ability to take classic tropes, such as forbidden love and dystopian societies, and give them a well-knuckled twist is to be admired ... Set to become a trailblazer for young talent (Independent)

Shannon has continued to build on this imagined world with intricacy, and Paige's voice comes through to deliver a suspenseful story (Washington Post)

Book Description

A rebel who becomes a queen

The hotly anticipated third book in the bestselling Bone Season series - a ground-breaking, dystopian fantasy of extraordinary imagination

I think this might be the first time I've consistently handed out 5 stars on each book in a series bug somehow Shannon has accomplished the very difficult task of a consistently high standard.

The bone season world is richly imagined and nuanced but what really makes this series work are the characters. Paige herself is a believable combination of courage, ruthlessness and determination. Additionally all the supporting characters are equally well rounded and relatable, even those who are decidedly not likeable.

I don't want to get into spoiler territory but here Paige as underqueen has set herself the nigh on impossible task of uniting the underworld, undoing the harmful voyent classification system and taking down Sen-shield. So not much then...

A really good addition to the series which finishes on a very satisfying conclusion. It was such a long wait for this book though that I can't help a wave of dismay at the thought that another 4 books are planned before we get an answer to it all. On the other hand more of a series I like so there's that. If you enjoyed the rest of the series this installment is not to be missed. And if you haven't read the bobe season yet, what are you waiting for?

I'm not sure how much I can say without spoilers, but this was brilliant and well worth the wait for it. This book had everything I needed from it - excitement, intrigue, mayhem and of course, love and grief. The end of part two literally had me gasping. I can't recommmend it enough and I can't wait to see what happens in the rest of the series.

The wait for the third book in my favourite on-going series has been torture, but in the end it was worth it. The Song Rising met my expectations, with its killer twists and shocking revelations. It was my first (and only) five star book of 2016 and I wasn't even surprised! As someone who is bored of typical dystopian fiction, this series is a breath of fresh air. The way it mixes urban fantasy with dystopia just works. Utterly compelling, it's like no other dystopian series I've read before.

The Song Rising picks up where the previous book left off. Paige is trying to bring together the underworld, which is no easy job. She wants change and with change comes hard decisions. Some decisions she comes to regret as they back fire, and this sometimes makes her doubt herself and her ability to be Underqueen. At the end of the day, though, she knows she has to shoulder the responsibility and learn from her mistakes. Her continued growth amazed me, and I'm sure there's more to come as the series progresses.

Some may find the pacing of the first half of the book slow as there's not a ton of action. As with the previous book, however, I didn't mind the pacing. I found every page of The Song Rising to be fascinating. The world-building expanded in this instalment of The Bone Season series, and it added even more layers to the story. We finally see Paige stepping out of Scion London, and exploring Scion Edinburgh and Manchester. I found the snow filled journey and exploration into both places interesting as they differed quite a bit from Scion London.

In regards to Warden and Paige, whenever these two were in a scene together there was this palpable chemistry, it didn't matter whether they were talking, not talking, or making out. They just have this amazing slow burn romance.
