    Inhaltsangabe

    Bloomsbury presents The Mask Falling by Samantha Shannon, read by Alana Kerr Collins. 

    Paige Mahoney has eluded death again. Snatched from the jaws of captivity and consigned to a safe house in the Scion Citadel of Paris, she finds herself caught between those factions that seek Scion’s downfall and those who would kill to protect the Rephaim’s puppet empire. 

    The mysterious Domino Programme has plans for Paige, but she has ambitions of her own in this new citadel. With Arcturus Mesarthim - her former enemy - at her side, she embarks on an adventure that will lead her from the catacombs of Paris to the glittering hallways of Versailles. Her risks promise high reward: the Parisian underworld could yield the means to escalate her rebellion to outright war. 

    As Scion widens its bounds and the free world trembles in its shadow, Paige must fight her own memories after her ordeal at the hands of Scion. Meanwhile, she strives to understand her bond with Arcturus, which grows stronger by the day. But there are those who know the revolution began with them - and could end with them....

    "This is an ebullient, gloriously complicated fantasy [...] the characters feel grippingly real. Shannon unravels her tangled tale in galloping prose, which will carry even the reluctant readers to the very satisfying end." (Telegraph)

    "Dark, embattled, highly wrought fantasy." (Observer)

    "Fabulous, epic fantasy thriller." (The Times)

    Adventurous, unpredictable, french

    Everything I love about a book: Suspense, complex characters, splendid settings poetically described. Being myself French, I appreciated the care the author took to describe a parallel Paris and the effort to integrate the French language and history. After the first book of the series my favorite! Compliment also to the narrator.
