**If you haven’t read The Bone Season or The Mime Order, beware of spoilers!** The Song Rising, I am very sad to say, has given me serious doubts about how much I’m going to enjoy the rest of this seven book series. The first book had me proclaiming it was my favourite series since Harry Potter, the second disappointed but left me optimistic for the third, and…now…honestly, I’m worried.
**If you haven’t read The Bone Season, beware of spoilers!** The second book in The Bone Season series, probably the most highly anticipated read of 2015 for me and, to be frank, only a three-star book in my eyes. The ending, however, was so damn exciting it earned a star all on its own. Sadly the rest of the novel didn’t quite live up to my expectations.
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.
Mild spoilers ahead. It was impossible to write this review completely spoiler free! Fuck. Fuck. I don’t know what to do with myself. The book is over. And I just … can’t. Just when you think Sarah J Maas has hit her best, she just keeps getting better. She’s a flipping legend.
