The Mime Order, book two of The Bone Season series written by Samantha Shannon, comes out at the end of this month, and thus a trailer has been released for the book. It focuses on the main protagonist, Paige Mahoney, as she’s being sought out by the police.
Here’s the synopsis:
Paige Mahoney has escaped the brutal prison camp of Sheol I, but her problems have only just begun: many of the survivors are missing and she is the most wanted person in London…
As Scion turns its all-seeing eye on the dreamwalker, 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 centre 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.
This book basically starts off where The Bone Season ended, and things are becoming more dreadful for those voyants. Not only do they have to maintain secrecy in public, but now there’s the Rephaim to worry about.
It’s actually hard to describe all that much about it because there’s so much to take in. However, once you do, you’ll probably be in it for the long haul, as this is a planned seven-book series.
The Mime Order comes out January 27, 2015.
