BY THE SUNDAY TIMES AND NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE PRIORY OF THE ORANGE TREE A rebel who becomes a queen The amazing third book in the bestselling Bone Season series - a ground-breaking, dystopian fantasy of extraordinary imagination Following a bloody battle against foes on every side, Paige Mahoney has risen to the dangerous position of Underqueen, ruling over London's criminal population. But, having turned her back on Jaxon Hall and with vengeful enemies still at large, the task of stabilising the fractured underworld has never seemed so challenging. Little does Paige know that her reign may be cut short by the introduction of a deadly technology that spells doom for the clairvoyant community and the world as they know it...

MEDIA REVIEWS
An ebullient, gloriously complicated fantasy ... The characters feel grippingly real. Shannon unravels her tangled tale in galloping prose ***** * Daily Telegraph *
Like treasures unearthed by mudlarks, Samantha Shannon's alternative world is studded with fabulous language ...With a sharp eye on the politics of identity, Shannon transports us into a world where the oppressed are pitted against one another in the struggle for survival ... Explosive * Daily Mail *
Easily the most politically engaged of any of the contemporary dystopian fantasies ... Ever since HG Wells' The War Of The Worlds there has been a slight aversion to looking at the global consequences of such dystopias and Shannon seems to be taking that wider view ... There is so much intrigue and escapade, character development and imagination here ... We have four books to go. I am more than willing to wait * Scotland on Sunday *
A whopper of a denouement ... Shannon's brilliance is that she is not afraid of change, both for her characters and her setting ... The 25-year-old remains a name to watch * Independent *
The third book sees feisty heroine Paige Mahoney take on the dangerous role of Underqueen, ruling over London's criminal population * Daily Express *
My recent shore-side reads have included Samantha Shannon's The Song Rising * Red *
PRAISE FOR THE MIME ORDER: "A riveting page-turner ... She creates a convincing world defined by its own invented logic * Mail on Sunday *
It goes hell-for-leather, all poltergeists and grisly murders and pitched battles in the catacombs of Camden * Sunday Times *
Thrusting readers back into the world of Paige and a more detailed journey through future London. The novels are hugely imaginative ... Part Hunger Games dystopia, part urban fantasy * Independent on Sunday *
A triumphant blend of Orwellian dystopia and China Mieville nonconformity ... Shannon's ability to take classic tropes, such as forbidden love and dystopian societies, and give them a well-knuckled twist is to be admired ... Set to become a trailblazer for young talent * Independent *
Shannon has continued to build on this imagined world with intricacy, and Paige's voice comes through to deliver a suspenseful story * Washington Post *

“Another triumphant episode of The Bone Season series”

The Song Rising is the start of the step up in scale that The Mime Order led to, and boy do things really step up. Starting exactly as The Mime Order ends, we follow Paige as she leads her followers to safety and... More

WHERE DO I EVEN BEGIN?

I have spent the better part of two weeks reading EVERYTHING that has been released about Paige Mahoney and her world and now I have no idea what to do with myself. I’ve been stalking and... More

“Perfect continuation to the series with a dark twist ”

I had been meaning to write this review since April but no sentence could form in my mind, that was adequate enough to describe, just how precious this book is. If you have read the previous installments of the Bone... More
