I have spent the better part of two weeks reading EVERYTHING that has been released about Paige Mahoney and her world and now I have no idea what to do with myself. I’ve been stalking and screenshotting EVERYTHING Samantha Shannon has been saying about book 4 because I NEED IT LIKE I NEED LIFE (and apparently it’s full of #Paiden ANGST and we LEARN MORE ABOUT WARDEN AND HELLO? *Throws money at it*)
The Song Rising picks up right after the ABSOLUTELY SHOCKING REVELATION at the end of The Mime Order (WHY CERTAIN CHARACTER WHY?) with Paige reeling from the truth, conflicted about her feelings about Warden and trying to understand her new role in the Syndicate.
Let’s get down to it:
1. THE BEGINNING AND THE END WERE ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT: You couldn’t imagine a more perfect start to this book – it was all adrenaline, all power and a whole new order in the Criminal Syndicate of London, AND THAT WAS JUST THE BEGINNING. The Ending pretty much wrecked me. I read over 150 pages this morning, ignoring EVERYTHING else around me and AAAH. No spoilers, but AAAAH.
2. THIS IS MORE POLITICAL THAT THE REST OF IT: I suppose you could call this book the beginning of a political revolution, moving away from London and to Manchester and Scotland and the ending takes all our favourite characters out of the heart of the Scion Empire and into the rest of Europe. It was highly political in the way that Paige met different leaders of the Voyant network in different cities, the MILITARY came in as did military strategy and there were so many mind games being played. I liked it, but it did take some getting used to.
3. THE MIDDLE SORT OF DRAGGED: I think when Paige was in Edinburgh, for the FIRST TIME EVER, this series sort of dragged a little. I felt like there were too many new characters, almost all of them SO SO STUBBORN. It was JUST a little, and picked up again twenty to thirty pages in, but it was still there.
4. PAIDEN WILL FOREVER BE MY OTP: HANDS DOWN, BEST. FICTIONAL. COUPLE. EVER. Or you know, not a couple but seriously, I ADORE HOW THE BOTH OF THEM WORK TOGETHER and how intensely they feel for each other and how their different powers work in sync when they’re together and AAH. I love their ability to just GET one another and the fact that Warden said that Terebell USED to be his mate because…
5. THIS SERIES IS ONLY THE BEST-EST OUT THERE: Hands down, NO OTHER SERIES has such BRILLIANT Worldbuilding and characters and POWER like this one does. I love the brutality in this dystopian/ fantasy world as well as the chemistry. This book shows you SO MUCH World and Character Development that it feels SO SO REAL AND CAN I HAVE MORE PLEASE?
I want nothing more than to dive into the next book in the series, and it kills me that I have to wait!
A heart wrenching, addicting, intense series with some of the best characters in a world that keeps getting better. I can’t wait for everything that is to come in this series, and I could not recommend it enough!
A MUST READ FOR ALL DYSTOPIAN FANS – this series is everything you never knew you were waiting for.
The Song Rising is the third installment in Samantha Shannon's dystopian fiction series, The Bone Season. True to its namesake, the novel chronicles the rising of hope, as the Mime Order attempts to evade the growing power of Scion (a corrupt governmental organization that seeks to rid the world of unnaturals). The new threat that the Mime Order faces makes it impossible for clairvoyants to roam freely in London. In addition to facing off the malicious Hildred Vance, Paige Mahoney has lured a hoard of other enemies. Nashira Sargas, the Emim, Terebell Sheratan are all waiting for her to slip up. Even some of the clairvoyants seem to think her unfit to be the Underqueen. With so many people vying for her failure, Paige is thrust into a ceaseless conundrum.
Elements of brutality, friendship and resilience largely dominate the game-board, making the characters swing this way and that. Paige takes it upon herself to get to the core of what powers the new Scion technology. She soon realizes that her power as Underqueen is plunging at an alarming speed. And thus starts a journey of unrelenting obstacles.
This novel is an experience in dreamscaping. Samantha Shannon paints such a vivid picture that every scene is as clear as a visual representation. It is impossible not to feel what Paige is feeling! The author's writing style, in addition to being crisp, is inviting. I found the novel to be generously interspersed with cliffhangers and I was in awe of the innovative way in which the author has lathered these plot points together without making it draggy. The character arcs are commendable for most characters; they are devoid of any fluff. Paige has been portrayed to be an immensely powerful character. Her resilience knows no bounds and just when you think that she can't go any further, she proves you wrong.
Eliza, Maria, Nick and Tom form Paige's support system. Even though we don't learn much about their individual stories, their wisdom contributes to Paige's strength and her ability to decide what's best. Lastly, Warden. He is the quintessential brooding, bad-boy character. I wish they'd do away with this trope. Anyhow, there's clearly something between him and Paige, but that aspect of the plot isn't pursued in this novel. I definitely liked The Song Rising better than the previous book, i.e. The Mime Order, because it is more fast paced and intricate. So much is happening simultaneously throughout the novel that it constantly keeps you hooked. However, towards the end all the steam tapers off and I can't really picture the story continuing. So I am a little hesitant as to what the future entails. There are definitely some tear-jerker moments in the book. And some of these moments made me realize how much Paige has had to sacrifice to hold the syndicate together.
Overall, the storyline is great; the characters add value to the plot; the writing style is gripping. I don't know how much potential there is for the next book. But we'll get to that bridge later. I definitely recommend this book to all Dystopian Fiction fanatics.

Without wanting to incorporate too many spoilers from the previous two books, The Song Rising continues from where The Mime Order leaves off, Paige has become Underqueen and she really matures in this book and spends a lot of time growing as a character. She comes to life in this book.
Obviously she's been alive and kicking butt in the other too books but in this instalment of The Bone Season I think she really takes on that strong female lead role that she's been reluctantly trying to master the whole time. Being Underqueen comes at a cost, Paige has to her allies happy and interested, while also helping those under her leadership. On top of all that she has Warden.
I'm the sort of person who will fall head over heels for a good ship and Warden/Paige do not disappoint in the slightest. I love them as a couple and their chemistry in The Song Rising is completely on point. Samantha Shannon was definitely writing for the fans, I was completely hypnotised throughout the Paige and Warden Scenes. After a tantilising slow burn you will not be disappointed with how things are progressing between them, I promise.
We get to see a lot of the world Samantha Shannon has built in this book. Scion and London are explored in a lot of detail, as well as this there is some branching out to the communities outside of London. As more of the world is explored we get a lot of character backstory and more twists. Following The Mime Order I have been suspicious of everyone, just who can Paige trust?
I was incredibly nervous for the end of this book, as I wasn't looking forward to waiting for a fourth installment. Nervousness was definitely justified as the finale of The Song Rising was possibly the strongest element of the book. While it is impossible to be left unsatisfied by this book, I definitely feel the pain that other fans felt while waiting for book 3. I need book 4 now. Please? No? Fine, I'll settle down for a very impatient wait.
This book has the potential to be my favourite book of 2017 and it's only March, that could have something to do with reading all three books this year but from the look of everyone else's opinions, I don't think I'm alone in giving this book and Samantha Shannon such high praise.
The bone season world is richly imagined and nuanced but what really makes this series work are the characters. Paige herself is a believable combination of courage, ruthlessness and determination. Additionally all the supporting characters are equally well rounded and relatable, even those who are decidedly not likeable.
I don't want to get into spoiler territory but here Paige as underqueen has set herself the nigh on impossible task of uniting the underworld, undoing the harmful voyent classification system and taking down Sen-shield. So not much then...
A really good addition to the series which finishes on a very satisfying conclusion. It was such a long wait for this book though that I can't help a wave of dismay at the thought that another 4 books are planned before we get an answer to it all. On the other hand more of a series I like so there's that. If you enjoyed the rest of the series this installment is not to be missed. And if you haven't read the bobe season yet, what are you waiting for?

I'm interested to see how the 4th book will continue the story now that Paige's main group have been split up in order to continue their battle against Scion and the Rephaim, i hope it will jump from character to character so we get each persons POV rather than just from Paige.
I just hope we don't have to wait too long for book 4 ;)
