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.

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.
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.
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...
I read these books first, then listen to them on audio. There is so much great detail to The Bone Season series that the audiobook really drives it all home.
"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!
"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.
