I have been a huge fan of The Bone Season series by Samantha Shannon since the first book released and I’ve been positively dying to read the next book, The Song Rising. The release date is closing in (March 7th 2017- still far too far) and as a TBS Advocate we were sent the prologue and let me tell you- AHHH IT WAS AWESOME. The Mime Order ended on such a crazy cliff hanger and I am so pumped I guessed what was next correctly.
My thoughts on the prologue…
Now Your Turn
If you’ve read both prior books I invite you to read the prologue yourself and let me know what you think!
Be aware- this prologue is FULL OF SPOILERS. So, if you are new to the series or haven’t read The Mime Order DO NOT READ THIS PROLOGUE. I don’t want you to be spoiled.
Here’s the prologue for The Song Rising (there ARE spoilers)
Did you see that Bloomsbury has changed the covers for the books? They look gorgeous and I can’t wait to add them to my collection. For those, like me, that have the hardcovers they are making a special collector’s edition for the books that will match the old design! How awesome is that!? You can find more info about the cover change here.

The hotly anticipated 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.
