A story of three privileged friends who travel to Scotland from America, in search of the Loch Ness monster during WWII. Before leaving the US, the war played a minimal role in the upper class lives of Maddie, Ellis,and their friend Hank. They soon find themselves buying ration cards and gas masks in preparation for air raids in the Scottish town of Drumnadrochit. Ellis and Hank make it their sole mission to find the monster, leaving Maddie behind to find more about herself and the beauty of "ordinary" people. With so many secrets revealed among the unique backdrop of WWII Scotland, I hung onto every word. Highly recommended. ~ Reviewed by Jess Elder

When we last saw Paige Mahoney in The Bone Season, she had escaped the prison colony of Sheol I but she is by no means free. She is now the most wanted person in Scion London and has to try to convince every mime-lord and mime-queen in the city that the horrors of the Rephaim are real. Can Paige lead a potential revolution against all of Scion, the Rephaim and maybe even her own family in the Seven Seals? "The Mime Order" is everything you want in a sequel and more! From beginning to end, the adventure and incredible world from the "The Bone Season" is back and will keep you enthralled. What a mindblowing series! ~ Reviewed by Jessica Elder
