I really enjoyed The Bone Season when it came out last year and have been looking forward to the second in the series. Granted, it wasn’t perfect but, because I missed out on much of the hype surrounding its release since I’d read it so far before it’s actual release, I think maybe I enjoyed it more than I would have otherwise (I’m contrary like that).
Not a fan of the title (Mimes? *shudder* Creepy bastards.) but I like how the cover works with the first one and it makes me curious about what the “2” in the corner means as well as the blue and white butterflies.
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.
