After finally reading The Mime Order to the end finally  , I knew I had to dive in to The Song Rising. I wasn’t waiting for the next book and hoping it would follow the  publication schedule we were all expecting.  I had waited for this book too long like many others  and I had high expectations. However still I was blow away and  fell in love with Paige and the others all over again in a total different way .

Readers won’t be disappointed,  Shannon manages to drag us right back in the midst of things as we never left but never placid us .  It the usual business for  Paige Mahoney. We seen her through thick and thin and remain alive barely.   In two books we have seen her become stronger and wise yet nevertheless determined in her cause that has driven her.

However this book, took things even further. Forget what you expect, as this action pack book will take you  places where you think it would never would go leaving you questioning ever single move. It gives you the feels basically

Shannon took this book where I expected yet it wasn’t .Despite being a young author, she has the maturity in her writing of someone who has been around for a while and she constantly improves on that.   The result was addicting adventure that never let up.  She can easily  slip into  slight shifts of sub genres but remain true to the core genre  and   the result was stunning.

Whilst I’m glad I got my hands on a book early and I was able to temporary satisfy the craving for Shannon’s words. I can’t feel  disappointed that I can’t experience this book again for the first time and have to wait to experience this feeling  and the feels for a number of months.  If you thought the first two books were good. Get ready for your mind to be blown again.

There a lot I could have said but decided not to say. However it is  worth the wait  and please do yourself a favour and buy this book. Shannon did justice for Paige and her story by waiting for so long and don’t be discourage by the length of the book.  Ever single of those pages will deliver enough to forget and make you love Paige, Warden and the others just a little bit more .
