The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

The Mime Order (The Bone Season, #2)The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The story picks up immediately after the first one finished. Paige Mahoney escaped her imprisonment in the Sheol prison camp, under cruel Rephaim leadership, only to return to her former cage, under the guise of protection, of her mime-lord Jaxon Hill. When the underlord of the underground clairvoyant community is brutally murdered, a new mime-lord must reign in his stead. All eyes turn to Jaxon Hill and his renowned mollisher, Paige. But Paige has other ideas. And these don’t involve being ruled by anyone, anymore.

Her morality is what made Paige such a fascinating protagonist. She may be young, impetuous, and volatile but she is also fierce, noble, and brave. This nebulous individual is also mirrored in the setting. There are wonderful evocative descriptions of this futuristic London.
