First up, I am so incredibly excited to announce that I’ve been chosen as a Bone Season Advocate! This means so much to me because this series is one I love, and I am so very proud to champion it in any way possible.
The second thing is that an exciting prelude to The Song Rising is here for you to feast your eyes on. Hopefully it will keep you satisfied in the wait for the third book in The Bone Season series – out in March 2017! The pretty cover is included below for your viewing pleasure:
If you’re worried that this cover doesn’t match the others you have, there’s a collector’s edition that’s being released, too, which matches the original covers. AND it’s signed by the author, which is just awesome. Who doesn’t love signed books? You can order it from The Book Depository, but be quick because there are limited copies available!
Before I start squealing about how much I enjoyed the prelude, have a read of it yourself here. You should probably read The Bone Season and its sequel The Mime Order beforehand (you should accept this challenge) so you aren’t spoiled for anything.
So, I take it that you’ve read it and loved it just like I did! So here are some quick thoughts from yours truly…
1) I adore the fact that Samantha Shannon can completely captivate me in a mere four pages. That I am pulled back into The Bone Season world that quickly.
2) I’m not entirely sure whether I’m supposed to like Jaxon, but I can’t help it. He’s an incredibly intriguing character, and I really hope that we learn even more about him in The Song Rising, and the other Bone Season books, too. I want to know about his past, and how he came to be the person he is.
3) But let me just bask in the ending of that prelude because WARDEN. I was so happy to see him in this little tidbit, and to know that the connection between he and Paige is still going strong. Ship it? Hell to the yeah I do.
Please let me know what you thought of the prelude, and don’t forget to add The Song Rising to your TBR!
