Customer Reviews

WHERE DO I EVEN BEGIN? I have spent the better part of two weeks reading EVERYTHING that has been released about Paige Mahoney and her world and now I have no idea what to do with myself. I’ve been stalking and screenshotting EVERYTHING Samantha Shannon has been saying about book 4 because I NEED IT LIKE I NEED LIFE (and apparently it’s full of #Paiden ANGST and we LEARN MORE ABOUT WARDEN AND HELLO? *Throws money at it*) The Song Rising picks up right after the ABSOLUTELY SHOCKING REVELATION at the end of The Mime Order (WHY CERTAIN CHARACTER WHY?) with Paige reeling from the truth, conflicted about her feelings about Warden and trying to understand her new role in the Syndicate. Let’s get down to it: 1. THE BEGINNING AND THE END WERE ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT: You couldn’t imagine a more perfect start to this book – it was all adrenaline, all power and a whole new order in the Criminal Syndicate of London, AND THAT WAS JUST THE BEGINNING. The Ending pretty much wrecked me. I read over 150 pages this morning, ignoring EVERYTHING else around me and AAAH. No spoilers, but AAAAH. 2. THIS IS MORE POLITICAL THAT THE REST OF IT: I suppose you could call this book the beginning of a political revolution, moving away from London and to Manchester and Scotland and the ending takes all our favourite characters out of the heart of the Scion Empire and into the rest of Europe. It was highly political in the way that Paige met different leaders of the Voyant network in different cities, the MILITARY came in as did military strategy and there were so many mind games being played. I liked it, but it did take some getting used to. 3. THE MIDDLE SORT OF DRAGGED: I think when Paige was in Edinburgh, for the FIRST TIME EVER, this series sort of dragged a little. I felt like there were too many new characters, almost all of them SO SO STUBBORN. It was JUST a little, and picked up again twenty to thirty pages in, but it was still there. 4. PAIDEN WILL FOREVER BE MY OTP: HANDS DOWN, BEST. FICTIONAL. COUPLE. EVER. Or you know, not a couple but seriously, I ADORE HOW THE BOTH OF THEM WORK TOGETHER and how intensely they feel for each other and how their different powers work in sync when they’re together and AAH. I love their ability to just GET one another and the fact that Warden said that Terebell USED to be his mate because… 5. THIS SERIES IS ONLY THE BEST-EST OUT THERE: Hands down, NO OTHER SERIES has such BRILLIANT Worldbuilding and characters and POWER like this one does. I love the brutality in this dystopian/ fantasy world as well as the chemistry. This book shows you SO MUCH World and Character Development that it feels SO SO REAL AND CAN I HAVE MORE PLEASE? I want nothing more than to dive into the next book in the series, and it kills me that I have to wait! A heart wrenching, addicting, intense series with some of the best characters in a world that keeps getting better. I can’t wait for everything that is to come in this series, and I could not recommend it enough! A MUST READ FOR ALL DYSTOPIAN FANS – this series is everything you never knew you were waiting for.

The Song Rising is the start of the step up in scale that The Mime Order led to, and boy do things really step up. Starting exactly as The Mime Order ends, we follow Paige as she leads her followers to safety and explores Scion's other strongholds in Manchester and Edinburgh in order to stop Senshield and Scion's further plans. As ever, Shannon's writing is lyrical, well paced and absolutely fantastic. The fourth episode can not come soon enough.
