Publisher's Summary

The hotly anticipated third audiobook in the best-selling Bone Season series - a groundbreaking dystopian fantasy of extraordinary imagination.

Following a bloody battle against foes on every side, Paige Mahoney has risen to the dangerous position of Underqueen, ruling over London's criminal population.

But having turned her back on Jaxon Hall, and with vengeful enemies still at large, the task of stabilising the fractured underworld has never seemed so challenging.

Little does Paige know that her reign may be cut short by the introduction of Senshield, a deadly technology that spells doom for the clairvoyant community and the world as they know it.

    "great third part, action packed :)"

    loved this book. I was slightly wary after reading a negative review of the audiobook but it is just as good as the previous two! I have listened to all three over a period of a week and now I have to wait for the next installment!

    "Narrator changed?"

    I've now listened to all 3 books in the bone season series. This book sounds like it's being read by a different narrator- most annoying! It's completely ruined my enjoyment of the story.

    "Disappointing"

    Dragged and was disappointing compared to the other books. Story could have been more exciting and could have elaborated on the move story more. Didn't really take me anywhere emotionally.

    "Not as good as previous books"
    What did you like best about The Song Rising? What did you like least?

    Pacey with a couple of twists but nowhere near as compelling as the Bone Season. Feels less polished, a bridging book between Paige's life in Seven dials and the future where she is in a French resistance movement. A bit 'been there seen that', like a boring WW2 movie on Sunday afternoon. Character less deep and therefore I cared less about them.

    "Good conclusion, but not great"

    As with many trilogies these days, the first book is great, lures you in, the second isn't as good, but still worth it and then the third and final part of the story is losing the tempo and drama gradually towards a realistic, but foreseeable ending.
    Well read, story is alright, but nothing to shout about. Bit disappointed...

    Was as good as the previous book, full of twists, turns and action. Loved the performance by the narrator and well done to Samantha Shannon for creating such a great read.

    "Back to the ether"

    The narrative moves into more political action and less in the dreamscape - but the wonderfully characters and evocative descriptions of time and place make this as compelling as the earlier pieces. Top class narration is the cherry on this marvellous cake.

    "Well worth the wait!"

    Having waited for what seemed like ages for this book, I was a little apprehensive that it would not live up to the high level of quality set by the previous novels in the series..but it did!

    Very fast-paced, this instalment explored a much bigger backdrop of life under Scion as well as the struggles of Paige, Warden and their allies against Scion's increasing clampdown on the "Unnaturals".

    The build-up of detail in the first half was gritty and fascinating, completely right for the explosion of action, (and some really startling twists!), in the second..

    Overall, it was a really satisfying book, well read by Ms Collins, which will make the wait for the next in the series feel even more long!

    Thoroughly recommended!

    "The bone season series."

    This series gets better and better. A real page turner, with twists and turns in almost every chapter. Unputdownable till the last full stop. I can't wait to read the rest of the saga.

    "Can't even listen to it"
    Any additional comments?

    I loved Alana Kerr Collin's voice and reading style for the first two books, but this one has her sounding like Captain Kirk or an 8th grader reading Beowulf. I can't get past chapter 2. This book will be returned and guess I'll have to buy a hard copy. So disappointed as I had really looked forward to another great story to have on Audible.

    "What happened!?"

    I absolutely love this series BUT what happened to the narrator?? Kerr's narration is way different than the last few books-- it made it very difficult to get through the book. Hopefully they fix this for the next books.

    "What the heck happened?"

    The producers of this audiobook must have changed from the last two books, because Kerr's delivery went from nuanced to deadpan. I loved the previous two books in the series, but I'm asking for a refund on this one and buying a physical copy. Super disappointed.

    "Wow—What happened to the narration?!"

    Really enjoyed this narrator for the first two books—she was excellent—but her reading in this one is completely different. It's honestly, quite difficult to listen to and I find myself either cringing or not paying attention. There is no subtlety. All the talent showed in the first two books is now just flat. What happened? I'll likely be unable to finish listening to this and return it. Too bad. I guess I'll have to get a physical edition if I ever want to finish it.

    "Lost my interest"

    I can't put my finger on why, but for most of this book I simply did not care about the main character.

    The last hour and a half of this book was interesting but I could have done without the rest of the book.

    I don't think I'll continue reading this series.

    Absolutely love this world and the characters in it. Fan for life! Aside from Rowling and Tolkien, Shannon is my next favorite author. Alana Kerr Collins delivers a great performance of Paine Mahoney as well. Cannot wait for your next book Samantha!
