Blurb from Goodreads:

 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.



 Why I'm Anticipating This Book:

The Bone Season series is one of my favourites and I can't wait to read the new installment. I've already heard lots of good things about it and know that it's probably going to have me in tears. I'm excited for more scenes with Paige and Warden!



  1. I haven't tried the Bone Season series yet, but I really really want to! I love the sound of it. This one sounds like it will be a great edition. I hope you love it when you read it!

  2. I still need to try the Bone Season series. Hope you enjoy this one too!
