Bone Season Advocate_Facebookbanner851X315

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!

    I didn’t even know there was a special collector’s edition for this book! I actually haven’t started The Bone Season yet, but it is on my list. And from your enthusiasm here, I should get to it soon hahah.

      It was only announced about a week ago! I’m super glad because it means that the original covers still have the chance to match :D Ohmygosh, Valerie! It is so good! Let me know what you think of it when you get around to reading it!

  2. I haven’t read this series, but I have heard really good things about the author and the first book in the series! Thanks for sharing. I hope the third book is a winner for you!

    So I’m not going to read the prelude, but I am going to try and catch up so that I can read this one when it comes out without having a bunch of other books in the series to still catch up on. But I’m so happy you’ve been given the opportunity of being an Advocate for this series (your review helped me decide I had to read it to begin with!) because you love it and are passionate about it and champion it, so you’re perfect for anything that promotes it and gets the word out about it. *throws a cake at you happily* YAY CHIARA!

    I’m also really happy you can get this in the old covers (and hopefully the future books, too), because I really like how they fit in together (and this new one is prettyyyyyy). Tis nice.
    Again, YAY CHIARA! xx

      Yessss, you need to read The Mime Order, Romi! Tis just as good as the first book, and it is even more intense.

      I am so incredibly happy to have been chosen as an Advocate! I DO really love this series, and I hope that I can persuade even more people to fall in love with it :D

      Yes, all the future books will be released in the collector’s edition to match the original ones, which I think is super awesome. Bloomsbury obviously knows how much book lovers want their series to match, haha.
