Product Description

Hotly anticipated second book in The Bone Season series. The first book hit the bestseller lists across three continents in the first week of publication (the Sunday Times in the UK, the New York Times in the US and Asian Age in India). It has sold more than 250,000 copies in the English language alone and has been translated into twenty-eight languagesAfter a heated auction, film rights to The Bone Season were optioned by The Imaginarium Studios, a British film company led by Andy Serkis (The Lord of the Rings) and Jonathan Cavendish (producer of Bridget Jones's Diary). 20th Century Fox have subsequently teamed with Chernin Entertainment to acquire The Bone Season2014 will see an ongoing media bonanza - Samantha Shannon will continue to do events, signings and press all over the world throughout the yearSamantha Shannon is the New York Times and Sunday Times bestselling author of The Bone Season series. Her work has been translated into twenty-six languages. She lives in London. samanthashannon.co.uk / @say_shannonPaige Mahoney has escaped the brutal prison camp of Sheol I, but her problems have only just begun: many of the survivors are missing and she is the most wanted person in London... As Scion turns its all-seeing eye on the dreamwalker, 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.The hotly anticipated sequel to the Sunday Times bestseller, The Bone SeasonA riveting page-turnerThe Mime Order picks up a scant half-hour from the end of The Bone Season, thrusting readers back into the world of Paige and a more detailed journey through future London. The novels are hugely imaginative, and the mash-up of sub-genres - part Hunger Games dystopia, part urban fantasyThe Mime Order . is, if anything, more accomplished and imaginative than The Bone Season. I am clearly not the target audience, but, crikey, I'll be second in the queue for Book III . I'm left wondering where Paige and Shannon will go next. She's dropped hints about Sheol II being in France, and Americans not subscribing yet to the Scion doctrines - is Paige heading to Paris or Washington? Wherever she does go, I will followAt its best The Bone Season was a triumphant blend of Orwellian dystopia and China Miéville nonconformity ... There is enough here to be stuck to the page like a book binder's glue. 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 - books one and two have demonstrated that she looks set to become a trailblazer for young talentShannon's haunting dystopian universe is rich in detail, consistent, suffused with familiar afternotes. Just when the bloodshed seems over the top, she turns to shimmering descriptions of Paige's dangerously illicit tie to Warden. When Paige seems toughest, Shannon reminds us of her empathy for the downtrodden. "Hope is the lifeblood of revolution," Shannon writes. "Without it, we are nothing but ash, waiting for the wind to take us" Like Paige Mahoney, Shannon now has proven staying power. Her fans will be calling for moreA gripping sequel London already has a long history of memorable ne'er-do-wells - Jack the Ripper, anyone? - but author Samantha Shannon adds dark, shady corners and an amazingly rich and unruly underworld to the city in The Mime Order . If anyone was wondering how Shannon would stretch this story into seven books, the gut punch of the last line in The Mime Order will instead have them on tenterhooks for the next fiveLanguage as rich as a figgy pudding, the best terminology in the genre and gripping, edge-of-the-seat plotting to bootPaige escapes a brutal prison camp to face darkness and danger as the fate of the underworld unfolds
