Publisher's Summary

A dreamer is born - the exhilarating prequel to the ground-breaking, extraordinary Bone Season series.

In the perilous heart of Scion London, a dangerous and valuable poltergeist is on the loose - and it must be caught before chaos erupts on the streets of the capital. Here, the clairvoyant underworld plays by its own rules, and rival gangs will stop at nothing to win such a magnificent prize.

Sixteen-year-old Paige Mahoney is working for Jaxon Hall, the most notorious mime-lord in the city. He thinks she is hiding a powerful gift, but it refuses to surface. Maybe this is the opportunity she needs to secure her position in his gang, the Seven Seals....

A great novella

This novella is meant to be read before The Bone Season even though it was published after The Bone Season. I would say reading it before or after is fine. If you read it before, you get a background to Jaxton, Nick, Eliza, and Paige before the events in The Bone Season occur. It helps with understanding more in The Bone Season. If you read it after, it fills in more details and adds to the story of The Bone Season while also redirecting your mind back to London and how everything works there before reading The Mime Order which I believe focuses more on London and the Mime lords and queens. Overall, I enjoyed it. It was good for a novella. A good story with just enough detail added. It doesn’t feel like a waste of time, and it contributes to the story.

Love the Series

The book was great, a little slow at the beginning but picked up. Can’t wait to listen to the next book in the series.
