Synopsis: “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.”
There are no words good enough to describe The Mime Order other than amazing and brilliant. Samantha Shannon has really outdone herself in this sequel to The Bone Season. It was by far one of the best sequels I have ever come across and it certainly has me dying to know what happens in book three, which is a very long time from now. There were things that happened that I thought were so cleverly done with this book, layers and layers of storytelling, things yet to be learned and discovered. And that ending. I loved the ending. It’s a dog eat dog world in Scion. And I can’t wait to see how things unfold for Paige, Warden, and everyone else.
