Publisher's Summary

In the internationally best-selling The Bone Season, Paige Mahoney escaped the brutal penal colony of Sheol I, but now her problems have only just begun: many of the fugitives are still 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. But where is Warden? 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. Will Paige know who to trust? The hunt for the dreamwalker is on.

Series maturing nicely!

I admit to have being undecided following the first book in the series, "The Bone Season." Though the alternate-historical world-building had its compelling aspects, I found the Rephaim a bit too gothic. That's still the case, but it doesn't matter, because like all good stories, this is now clearly a human drama, with the Rephaim merely part of the scenery. The alternate history is more vivid and plausible than ever, despite elements both counterfactual and supernatural; this London is eerily familiar.

A word needs to be said about the narrator, Alana Kerr. Hers is clearly the voice of protagonist Paige, Irish accent, weary compassion, and all. She does not have a huge expressive range, and sometimes distinguishing character voices can be tricky in dialogue. However, there is one moment in this narration that makes up for all the defects. Usually narrators simply "punt" when confronted with verse the reader is supposed to imagine as sung; they either just read the verse, or they improvise embarrassing half-melodies. Not so Ms. Kerr. I won't say any more about the scene here, except that it was deeply moving, demonstrating extraordinary musical and affective sensibility.

I don't want to wait!

I really enjoyed this listen. Paige is young, and she feels young. But she doesn't bug me because her struggles to figure things out don't feel contrived. (I generally hate when the reader knows what is happening far before the character.). The books build on some established ground, but they feel fresh and new.

As with Bone Season, the story moves along fairly slowly. Little time passes, and not that much happens. This doesn't bother me at all, but it could be an issue for dinner listeners.

I enjoy the narration. her voice is engaging, and the different characters are clearly distinguished.

I can't believe I have to wait a year for the next installment.

"no brainer" if u enjoyed the first one!

It was a good while ago I read the first book... and could've done with a recap of all the different types of special powers in this book. Another slow start, but in the end it did keep the story ticking along and enjoyable.

If you've read the first, and enjoyed... this is a "no brainer".
