The third book in Samantha Shannon’s Bone Season series has been announced!

Shannon tweeted the title to her followers last Thursday:

In addition to the title, fans were also treated to a synopsis of the book:

On the eve of a new decade, after two hundred years of Scion rule, a revolution is beginning. Its unlikely cradle is the clairvoyant underworld in London, and even an old ally’s betrayal cannot stop it.

But an enemy from Paige Mahoney’s past is about to return – an enemy that could quench the flame of hope for good . . .

The Song Rising is currently set to hit shelves sometime in November 2016, although the exact date of release is currently unknown. The book follows Shannon’s two other books in the Bone Season series, The Bone Season and The Mime Order.

Set around the year 2059, The Bone Season series follows Paige Mahoney who’s been gifted with Clairvoyant powers (she can enter people’s minds). However, her status as a clairvoyant leads her to imprisonment at the hands of the Scion, the tyrannical force of Shannon’s dystopian London. The books follow Paige’s defiance against Scion and her attempts to both survive and understand the world around her.

Shannon first came onto the YA scene in 2012 when Bloomsbury gave her what was reportedly a six-figure book deal. Two years later in August 2014, the publisher signed on for the entire Bone Season series which is expected to consist of a total of seven books. The first book, The Bone Season, debuted on the New York Times Bestsellers list.

We’re excited to see what Samantha Shannon has in store for Paige and her readers in this next book! Bookstacked will be sure to keep you updated on developments as they come.
