Samantha Shannon discusses her new novel The Song Rising

The magnificent new book in the New York Times-bestselling series: a fantastic tale of rebellion and courage against enormous odds.

On the eve of a new decade, after two hundred years of Scion rule, a rebellion is stirring. Its unlikely cradle is the clairvoyant underworld in London, and even a shattering betrayal within the community cannot stop it.


Paige Mahoney is now Underqueen in London, determined to fight for her fellow clairvoyants against overwhelming odds. Her tentative alliance with the Ranthen is tested, and her rule is threatened by a technology so powerful it could destroy the world as she knows it. Racing against the clock, Paige goes north in search of a solution—but with a new enemy pulling the strings, and war on the horizon, she will have to make dangerous sacrifices to protect the ones she loves.


Samantha Shannon expands on the inspired world-building of her beloved series, blending fantasy and sci-fi in a sprawling dystopia—one in which heroism is an urgent calling.
