I am absolutely thrilled to have been chosen as a Bone Season Advocate to help promote Samantha Shannon’s glorious fantasy series. My social media followers will know that I’m a huge fan of the books and am eagerly awaiting the third installment in the series: The Song Rising out on March 7th 2017! Today I have an exciting sneak peek at the new book in the form of the prologue for The Song Rising. Spoiler warning: It’s probably not a good idea to read the prologue if you haven’t read The Bone Season or The Mime Order.
Once upon a time, at 8pm, you are unusually tired for this time of night. You make the executive decision to curl up in bed and allow a book to lull you to sleep. You’ve got several books on the go at the moment, ones you are enjoying tremendously, but you don’t fancy any of them tonight. You want to read something you’re not already invested in, something you can just read a couple of pages of before you drift into the inevitability of an early night and not remember anything you’ve read come the following morning.
