Paige Mahoney has escaped the brutal prison camp of Sheol I, but her problems have only just begun: many of the survivors are missing and she is the most wanted person in London . . .
As Scion turns its all-seeing eye on Paige, the mime-lords and mime-queens of the city's gangs are invited to a rare meeting of the Unnatural Assembly. Jaxon Hall and his Seven Seals prepare to take center stage, but there are bitter fault lines running through the clairvoyant community and dark secrets around every corner.
Then the Rephaim begin crawling out from the shadows. Paige must keep moving, from Seven Dials to Grub Street to the secret catacombs of Camden, until the fate of the underworld can be decided.
Paige Mahoney is looking to settle a score in the second installment to The Bone Season. Review time!
I don’t have much to say about The Mime Order. While the story is better written than the first book, I just don’t care. I don’t care about the characters or setting or world. My apathy for this novel reminds my of Synder’s Study series. All the elements are present – developed characters, interesting developments, and an evolving world – but I’m rather ho-hum about it all. If you enjoyed the first book in the series, most likely you will enjoy this book. Me? I think this series will go on my unfinished shelf.
tl;dr Better written second installment, but I just don’t care about the characters or setting to continue reading the series.
