Waiting on Wednesday is a meme created by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we have the opportunity to let others know about books that we are eagerly waiting for.
Title: The Mime Order (The Bone Season #2) by Samantha Shannon
Published by: Bloomsbury
Release date: January 2015
Paige Mahoney has escaped the brutal prison colony of Sheol I, but her problems have only just begun.
Many of the fugitives are sill missing, and what’s more, Paige is now the most wanted person in London. As Scion turns its all-seeing eye on Paige, she must do everything she can to evade capture and stay alive.
Then, 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.
With blood-thirsty Rephaim beginning crawling out from the shadows, 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.
But where is Warden? Does deception and betrayal lie waiting for her in the ranks of the criminal syndicate that took her under its wing? How can Paige know who to trust?
The hunt for the dreamwalker is on.
Why I want to read it: It’s not often that I find a series I’d be willing to read seven installments of, but when I read Samantha Shannon’s debut The Bone Season, I knew I’d be in it for the long haul with this one. Full of complex, unparalleled world-building and with a movie adaptation already in the pipeline, I can’t wait to return to Paige’s universe to find out what happens next!
