The Mask Falling

Samantha Shannon. Bloomsbury, $28 (528p) ISBN 978-1-63557-032-8
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.
