The Sunday Times bestseller, from the bestselling author of The Bone Season and The Priory of the Orange Tree
Paige Mahoney has eluded death again. Snatched from the jaws of captivity and consigned to a safe house in the Scion Citadel of Paris, she finds herself caught between those factions that seek Scion's downfall and those who would kill to protect the Rephaim's puppet empire.
The mysterious Domino Programme has plans for Paige, but she has ambitions of her own in this new citadel. With Arcturus Mesarthim - her former enemy - at her side, she embarks on an adventure that will lead her from the catacombs of Paris to the glittering hallways of Versailles. Her risks promise high reward: the Parisian underworld could yield the means to escalate her rebellion to outright war.
As Scion widens its bounds and the free world trembles in its shadow, Paige must fight her own memories after her ordeal at the hands of Scion. Meanwhile, she strives to understand her bond with Arcturus, which grows stronger by the day. But there are those who know the revolution began with them - and could end with them . . .
Shannon's gripping fourth Bone Season novel picks up where The Song Rising left off, with Paige Mahoney on the run after escaping imprisonment and torture. It's the year 2060, and Paige is hiding out in the Scion Citadel of Paris, recovering both physically and mentally from her trauma. Paige finds work with the Domino Programme a top-secret organization that seeks to overthrow the Scion branch in Paris using her gift of dreamwalking to infiltrate the government and discover devastating secrets. Accompanying her is Warden, her former enemy turned bodyguard. Paige's arc is deeply emotional as she works through painful memories, encounters fresh betrayals, and maintains her sense of duty to complete her missions no matter the cost. Shannon expertly blends genres to create a story that is at once a political thriller, a dystopian epic, and a paranormal adventure. This bold series installment will leave fans eager for more. \n
