Review: The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon
The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon
Published January 27th 2015
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 the dreamwalker, 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 centre 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.
I had heard the The Mime Order was even better than the first book and I was pretty hesitant to believe the hype. I don’t often find sequels to be better than the first books and I thought The Bone Season was really great. However, the hype was totally accurate.
I love the action and pacing in The Mime Order. Especially the last 100 pages or so. It was so exciting and I couldn’t put it down.
My favorite thing about this series is the romance. Paige and Warden are so much fun and I love their dialogue so much. I really love how well written and complex the characters are as well. I feel like Paige had some really great character development and I can’t wait to she how she grows in the next book.
