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.

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!
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"
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.
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.
"Finally and it didn't disappoint! "
Samantha Shannon is my new favorite. I've been stalking this whole series. Its absolutely fantastic.
"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.
I'm not sure why people are complaining about the narration of this volume of the series. I couldn't stop listening!
"I like the entire series"
I was hoping she was adding a third one. Now that she has, I can't wait for the fourth one. At least the story is left in a place where I'm pretty sure another one will come out. Love to listen to Syfy and this is as Science Fiction as they come. A special young girl takes over the reins of the forbidden underworld of Clairvoyants. Her battle to take down the bad guys who have taken over the British Isles and pretend to be the good ones takes her and her merry band of friends into areas long forgotten that were once called home. She not only has to win over the hearts and minds of the clairvoyants but keep them in hiding until she can destroy the new weapons that can be used against them. The narrator is excellent too or else I just like Irish accents.
"Can I get the rest of the series...NOW??"
1. I found the 1st book on chance...which is now clearly fate. While I typically prefer to read my books, my work doesn't always afford me that luxury so audible has satiated that need for me. 2. I am convinced Collins was intended to be the voice of Paige our Pale Dreamer & Black Moth & has made this series even more so engaging. 3. Amazing Series, phenomenal author & perfect narrator!!!
Really....way too may to list & honestly do yourself a favor....indulge yourself in this story you will only regret that you have to wait for the rest of the series!!!
She brings the unique terminology, dialogue & characters to life and allows you to easily acclimate to the story without your full understanding of the world that is being constructed before your eyes.
Um YES...and I only did not because I knew that the next installment isn't even close to being released.
Ms. Shannon...you are amazing....please give us MORE of this world, because while I am desperate for the next few, I admit I don't want it to end....7 might not be enough!!!!
"Well worth the wait!!"
Absolutely loved it! Now back to anxiously awaiting the next book in this captivating and beautiful series!!!
"Loving this series!!!"
Another great story by Samantha Shannon and great narration once again by Alana Kerr. Alana's voice seems different this time around, but not monotone in my opinion(some reviews mentioned it), almost more hopeful and full. She brings Paige's confusion and self doubt forward while still expressing Paige's heart, tenacity and ferocity.
We are still seeing Paige try to understand the pull between herself and Warden. She struggles with being a leader and the decisions that she has to make, both with the Mime Order and Warden. My only gripe is that I have to wait another year for the next book. Ugghh.
There is swearing and some graphic violence, as an advisement to any concerned parents out there. One scene speaks of Paige's desire for Warden, but the romance stays mild.
Shannon I think missed many opportunities to create and more diverse plot for the 3rd book. It seems like a repeat of run away, rebel, survive, no real twists and drawn out for what was really happening, could have been much longer. And Warden and Paige's relationship is an infuriating tease. Just disappointed when you wait two years for a book to come out...
