Book Review: The Mime Order - Samantha Shannon

The Mime Order (The Bone Season, #2)
Paige Mahoney has escaped the brutal prison camp of Sheol I, but her problems have only just begun: many of the survivors are missing and she is the most wanted person in London...

As Scion turns its all-seeing eye on the dreamwalker, the mime-lords and mime-queens of the city's gangs are invited to a rare meeting of the Unnatural Assembly.  Jaxon Hall and his Sever Seals prepare to take center stage, but there are bitter fault lines running through the clairvoyant community and dark secrets around every corner.  Then the Rephaim begin crawling out from the shadows.  But where is Warden?  Paige must keep moving, from Seven Dials to Grub Street to the secret catacombs of Camden, until the fate of the underworld can be decided.

3/5 stars (liked it)
I think I liked the first book better than this one.  This book seemed to be a little slow and there was a big lack of Warden.  I would have liked to see more of Warden in the book.  Although the ending of this book greatly redeemed itself.  I love the forbidden relationship between Warden and Paige.  Also as much I don't like Jaxon I like him.  All the other clairvoyants that are friends with Paige are great.  I can't wait to read the next one.
