Paige Mahoney has escaped the brutal penal colony of Sheol I, but 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.


What a perfect book this was in terms of setting up and igniting a mighty revolution. I was burning for this book and I absolutely loved it. There was fire and intensity and political intrigue. This book definitely had down that some things are better left unsaid (or rather some things must be left unsaid or you may loose your head). 

Paige is an incredible character to follow, because in this book you truly see her mental, physical, and emotional strength flourish. Not only does her gift grow in this novel, but she does as well and it was a joy to watch. Paige had to make so many hard decisions in this novel and it made my hear ache to see how things turned around. Especially that ending that I’m so mad I didn’t see coming… 

There was so much awesome animosity in this book. So much tension between characters that I felt it deep in my heart. The dialogue was so so well-written, which is something that I usually don’t talk about. I felt it when Paige wanted to say more then she was letting on and when she pushed down anger in exchange for bidding her time. It was absolutely brilliantly done. 

Then when Warden finally came back I was so elated! He is the definition of swoonworthy and I can’t wait to see how his relationship with Paige blossoms in the future. Just remembering some of their scenes together in this book puts a smile on my face. They work together so well. 

If you haven’t read The Bone Season, go read it, and then immediately after pick up The Mime Order. This series needs to be talked about more. I am so excited to get my hands on book three! 

-Till next time!

Enter the world of Paige Mahoney, a gifted clairvoyant, a “dreamwalker”, in the year 2059. Her natural talents are considered treasonous under the current regime. Snatched away to a secret prison, she encounters another race, the Rephaim, creatures who wish to control the powers of Paige and those like her. One in particular will be assigned as her keeper, her trainer. But his motives are mysterious. To regain her freedom, Paige must learn to trust, in the prison where she is meant to die.


I loved this book! It is everything I could have ever wanted it to be and so much more! This book was one that I waited so long to finally get and read and I am so estatic that I could finally have it in my hands. 

I honestly don’t have the words to describe why I love this book so much. The characters, the description, the setting, the conflict, everything, was so good to me. So much action took place in this novel and it took me on a journey that immersed since page one. 

Paige is such an awesome character to follow. She is a true leader, and she is someone I wish I could be. I loved learning about her with the dreams of her past and I loved how much you see the growth in her throughout the pages. It was all so well done!

 I also love the fact that the idea of being free for a clairvoyant is so different from the idea of freedom in America. The whole clairvoyant system is so interesting to me! I was geeking out over it every single moment a new type of clairvoyant appeared and then the rephium and their relationship with Scion and all those political details made me really estatic. 

I could go on and on about the details I loved from this book but because this is a mini review I’m just gonna stop here. 

*eternally fangirling over this book* 

Please let me know if you’ve read this book in the comments! I’m just dying to form some more coherent thoughts on this book and I’d love to speak with you about it! Thanks for reading!
