The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon

The Song Rising is the hotly anticipated third book in the bestselling Bone Season series – a ground-breaking, dystopian fantasy of extraordinary imagination by Samantha Shannon. Released on March 7th 2017, The Song Rising picks up several weeks after the conclusion of the events of The Mime Order – the scrimmage and Jaxon’s betrayal. You can find my reviews for The Bone Season and The Mime Order here.

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 stabilizing the fractured underworld has never seemed so challenging. Little does Paige know that her reign may be cut short by the introduction of Senshield, a deadly technology that spells doom for the clairvoyant community and the world as they know it . . . (Chapters.Indigo.ca)
