The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

In the internationally bestselling novel The Bone Season, Paige Mahoney escaped the brutal penal colony of Sheol I, but now her problems have only just begun: many of the fugitives are still missing and she is the most wanted person in London.

As Scion turns its all-seeing eye on Paige, 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.

Peer & Press Reviews

More accomplished and imaginative than The Bone Season…  A satisfyingly “a-ha” denoument, and some of the best fight scenes I’ve read in donkey’s years

Scotland on Sunday

The world is so carefully constructed… weaved with lies and deceit and impossible to predict.

The Guardian

London becomes the main setting of the novel, and it assumes various guises, some comforting but most harrowing… propulsive plot.

Kirkus
