Book of the Week - Samantha Shannon's latest from the Bone Season series -
7 April 2017

This week's book is the long-awaited sequel - book three - in the Bone Season series by talented author Samantha Shannon. She has created a world full of new words and terms for supernaturals, and for an alternative reality of a future London, with a society in which anyone with one of these unnatural talents is an outcast, and it's gripping.

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 a deadly new technology that spells doom for the clairvoyant community and the world ...

One review ways - 

"As someone who is bored of typical dystopian fiction, this series is a breath of fresh air. The way it mixes urban fantasy with dystopia just works. Utterly compelling, it's like no other dystopian series I've read before.

The Song Rising picks up where the previous book left off. Paige is trying to bring together the underworld, which is no easy job. She wants change and with change comes hard decisions. Some decisions she comes to regret as they back fire, and this sometimes makes her doubt herself and her ability to be Underqueen. At the end of the day, though, she knows she has to shoulder the responsibility and learn from her mistakes. Her continued growth amazed me, and I'm sure there's more to come as the series progresses."
