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 Paige, 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 Seven 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. 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.

“An intoxicating urban-fantasy series . . . Shannon's haunting dystopian universe is rich in detail, consistent, suffused with familiar afternotes . . . Like Paige Mahoney, Shannon now has proven staying power. Her fans will be calling for more.” ―NPR.org
“A gripping sequel.” ―US Weekly
“While Bone Season was filled with action and exposition . . . betrayal and political intrigue take over in the excellent Mime Order . . . With the Unnatural Assembly and its colorful gangsters, Shannon goes full Scorsese . . . Tussling with poltergeists, showing her heroic mettle and even playing homicide detective, Paige makes great strides as a memorable character, and so does her author. If anyone was wondering how Shannon would stretch this story into seven books, the gut punch of the last line in The Mime Order will instead have them on tenterhooks for the next five.” ―USA Today
“Shannon creates vividly dilapidated, macabre, and mysterious worlds both urban and within the dreamscapes Paige valiantly enters. The motley, elaborately costumed characters are compelling; the nonstop, often eerie action is riveting. And the story reverberates with echoes of the slave trade, industrial servitude, and classic gangster drama, all intensified by keenly imagined otherworldly combat. A Clockwork Orange meets A Tale of Two Cities meets Harry Potter in this clever, caring, and spellbinding tale, which promises more to come . . . as Shannon's exceptional fantasy saga continues.” ―Booklist, starred review
“Full of the action, turns, and surprising revelations that readers have come to expect from Shannon, this new installment ends on a wholly unexpected twist.” ―Library Journal
“Shannon's world-building is original and intriguing, especially the complex, almost mythic voyant underground.” ―Publishers Weekly
“Her legion of fans will once again be here for the propulsive plot.” ―Kirkus Reviews
“With a unique plot, impeccable world-building and important character connections, The Mime Order outshines its predecessor and becomes an intelligent, adventurous read.” ―Deseret News
“[The Mime Order] boasts all of the suspense, intrigue and mystery of the first volume as well as an addictive storyline that will leave readers clamoring for the next chapters in Paige's ever-intensifying life . . . This deft effort to build on the complex world she constructed in the first installment will solidify the series' rightful place among the best of fantasy, sci-fi and dystopian fiction.” ―Shelf Awareness
