Welcome back to Scion – The Mime Order Book Tour with exclusive teaser for book 3 and a giveaway!

Oh my goodness! So many exciting things today! Where do I start?

This is one of my absolute favourite series. I’ve raved about it both on here and a lot on tumblr. I love it. It is a mix between fantasy and dystopian and it has one of the most interesting magic systems I’ve ever encountered in a book before.

The Bone Season follows the story of Paige in a futuristic (but kind of old-timey) London where being a Clairvoyant (or Voyant) is punishable by death. Paige is a Dreamwalker for an underground Voyant crime syndicate, and just by being alive she is breaking the law. And it’s really awesome.


So Samantha Shannon, the fabulous author of the amazing The Bone Season series, bless her cotton socks, has written a little teaser for book three for me to share with you all. How I have been deemed worthy for this ultimate honour is beyond me.

May I present to you a teaser for the third book in the series, written by Samantha Shannon, herself.


On the eve of a new decade, after two hundred years of Scion rule, a revolution is beginning. Its unlikely cradle is the clairvoyant underworld in London, and even an old ally’s betrayal cannot stop it.

But an enemy from Paige Mahoney’s past is about to return – an enemy that could quench the flame of hope for good . . .

Ooh! Revolutions, enemies and betrayal! Secrets from the past revealed…. New Year’s Eve! Maybe there will be a party? I don’t know. We’ll have to wait and see BUT I AM SO EXCITED! Personally cannot wait for this book to be released!

    Omggg THESE PICTURES ARE SO BEAUTIFUL. I didn’t love The Bone Season so I’m not suuuure if I should try this one. But I kind of want to because my sister’s name is Mime. xD hehe


  2. aimalfarooq says

    I LOVE this series. I need the third book this instant; I just can’t wait any longer to find out what happens next! So lucky you got to host Samantha on your blog, but you totally deserve it. Those pictures are to die for. 😀


  3. I just want to read book three SO BADLY right now. Finally finished The Mime Order at the end of August and OH MY GOD. Especially with that twist at the end which made my brain just explode all over my beautiful hardcover copy (mostly from: “WHY did I not see this coming?!!!”)


  4. Bethany says

    Dude. Books in trees. Two of the best things combined making gorgeous photos!!
    Also, I love these books!!! I’ve read roughly 30 books in the past month and these two are on that list, but they stand out sooo much. They’re 100% on my to-own list hahaha


    • I am so glad I own them. I originally read the bone season as an ebook (as they are bloomsbury and bloomsbury books are one of the smart publishers that realise that if they sell ebooks cheaply, they sell way more) and I loved it and bought the hardcover, then I was sent an eARC of The Mime Order, and I loved it so much I bought the hardcover.


  5. This is my favourite series. Cannot wait for book 3, hardcover editions of the first two books would help to ease the pain while i am waiting.


    • This is also one of my favourite series!
      If you are referring to the giveaway, it is for two paperback editons (as they are being provided by Bloomsbury Australia and most Australian editions don’t come in hardcover). The photos are of hardcovers as I only have the hardcover editions myself.


  6. Love, Love, LOVE this series so far! THANKYOU for the giveaway.
    I read The bone season on ereader and borrowed The Mime Order from a friend so I would love to have my own copies for endless re-reading!!
    Amazing characters, political and magic systems and Fantastic writing from Samantha Shannon. Beyond excited for book 3 after that ending in The Mime Order! 😱
    P.s your Instagram is one of my faves love your style, keep it up! 😊
