'Paige Mahoney has escaped the brutal penal colony of Sheol I, but her problems have only just begun: many of the fugitives are still missing and she is the most wanted person in London.

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 center 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.'

After what feels like a long wait the second book in the Bone Season series is finally on its way. By the time it's published in October it will have been fourteen months since the first book was released. Rather disgracefully I read Bone Season, or rather, devoured it and absolutely adored it but never wrote a review! I will change this as I'm definitely going to re-read before The Mime Order comes out.


  1. I totally just skimmed over this post because I have an ARC of The Bone Season, but I have not read it yet. It might be a while, honestly. I hope you read and love this book! :)

    Check out my WoW post!

  2. I haven't read the first book yet, but I do have a copy that's been on my e-reader for a while now.
    I hope the second book ends up being a great one for you! :)

    Happy reading!

  7. I had to skim your WoW because I haven't read book one. In fact somehow I completely forgot about The Bone Season - it's lost somewhere in my TBR pile.

  8. I'll admit I wasn't as crazy about The Bone Season as everyone else seemed to be, but I enjoyed it enough to want to read this sequel.

  9. I haven't heard of this author or series, but it sounds good. Thanks for sharing!

  10. I still haven't read The Bone Season! *smacks self* I should have! It sounds so interesting and like just the kind of thing I like! So I'm glad to see you loved it so much. I do love the covers for these, too. :) Great pick!!

  11. I heard so many great things about Bone Season but haven't had a chance to read it yet. Thanks for stopping by!

  12. I still haven't read bone season yet, so I will have to read that one first but this looks good.

    Awesome Pick! :)

  13. I've been debating The Bone Season. It looks so interesting, but the size and the fact that it is the first of 7 is pretty intimidating, so I haven't read it yet. I hope you love this one!

  14. I haven't seen this before, or the first book. Hope you enjoy it once out, though.

    Thanks for droppin by my WoW earlier!
