Product description

Review

An ebullient, gloriously complicated fantasy ... The characters feel grippingly real. Shannon unravels her tangled tale in galloping prose ***** (Daily Telegraph)

Like treasures unearthed by mudlarks, Samantha Shannon's alternative world is studded with fabulous language ...With a sharp eye on the politics of identity, Shannon transports us into a world where the oppressed are pitted against one another in the struggle for survival ... Explosive (Daily Mail)

Easily the most politically engaged of any of the contemporary dystopian fantasies . Ever since HG Wells' The War Of The Worlds there has been a slight aversion to looking at the global consequences of such dystopias and Shannon seems to be taking that wider view . There is so much intrigue and escapade, character development and imagination here . We have four books to go. I am more than willing to wait (Scotland on Sunday)

A whopper of a denouement . Shannon's brilliance is that she is not afraid of change, both for her characters and her setting . The 25-year-old remains a name to watch (Independent)

The third book sees feisty heroine Paige Mahoney take on the dangerous role of Underqueen, ruling over London's criminal population (Daily Express)

My recent shore-side reads have included Samantha Shannon's The Song Rising (Red)

PRAISE FOR THE MIME ORDER: "A riveting page-turner . She creates a convincing world defined by its own invented logic (Mail on Sunday)

It goes hell-for-leather, all poltergeists and grisly murders and pitched battles in the catacombs of Camden (Sunday Times)

Thrusting readers back into the world of Paige and a more detailed journey through future London. The novels are hugely imaginative ... Part Hunger Games dystopia, part urban fantasy (Independent on Sunday)

A triumphant blend of Orwellian dystopia and China Miéville nonconformity ... Shannon's ability to take classic tropes, such as forbidden love and dystopian societies, and give them a well-knuckled twist is to be admired ... Set to become a trailblazer for young talent (Independent)
