Waterstones Says

Fans of Samantha Shannon's seminal Bone Season series won't want to miss this incredible collectable edition of the fourth instalment featuring brand new cover art and updated text.

A stunning new edition of the fourth novel in the bestselling Bone Season series with gorgeous new cover artwork and updated text, by the bestselling author of The Priory of the Orange Tree.

Paige Mahoney has eluded death again. Snatched from the jaws of captivity and consigned to a safe house in the Scion Citadel of Paris, she finds herself caught between those factions that seek Scion’s downfall and those who would kill to protect the Rephaim’s puppet empire.

The mysterious Domino Programme has plans for Paige, but she has ambitions of her own in this new citadel. With Arcturus Mesarthim - her former enemy - at her side, she embarks on an adventure that will lead her from the catacombs of Paris to the glittering hallways of Versailles. Her risks promise high reward: the Parisian underworld could yield the means to escalate her rebellion to outright war. As Scion widens its bounds and the free world trembles in its shadow, Paige must fight her own memories after her ordeal at the hands of Scion.

Meanwhile, she strives to understand her bond with Arcturus, which grows stronger by the day. But there are those who know the revolution began with them - and could end with them.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Uniquely different and complex setting … the narrative exerts the same vice-like grip as before, with danger, deception, hair’s-breadth escapes and new revelations coming thick and fast - Guardian

Fiercely intelligent … Blazing a trail - Grazia

Shannon expertly blends genres to create a story that is at once a political thriller, a dystopian epic, and a paranormal adven­ture. This bold series instalment will leave fans eager for more - Publishers Weekly

Intricately plotted … Part political thriller, part paranormal epic, with some dark, dystopian bite tossed on top, The Mask Falling is Samantha Shannon at the top of her game - Culturess

Thrilling … A tantalizing, strategic setup for the next instalment, which has all the ingredients to be a knockout - Kirkus

It’s an intense read, filled with the grim realities of war … With each new novel Shannon continues to prove that she is a formida­ble voice in the fantasy genre. This book bites and refuses to let go … It’s addictive - Nerd Daily

“Excellent latest instalment to “The Bone Season””

Wonderfully imagined and addictive reading!
The characters continue to be expanded and multi dimensional.
Descriptions of the cities are beautifully detailed.
But it’s the story that grips.
Just fantastic.
