(The Bone Season #4)

I'm sure many of you are wondering what's going on with the Bone Season series while I'm busy with a separate project. Don't worry – I'm working on it! My hope was that Priory would be out this year, but as usual, I underestimated how long everything takes in adult publishing. Priory is scheduled for early 2019, so I suspect, since Bloomsbury has never published me twice ...more

Hey, Goodreads. I am very pleased to report that I've finished the first draft of TBS4. I’ve been a bit slower than usual on this one because I've been juggling it with a certain large book about dragons, but it's now a step closer to being a finished book.

I’ve absolutely loved drafting this one. It’s my favourite instalment of the series so far and I can’t wait to see what it becomes over the coming months while I work on it with my editor. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, as always, for

When it's been nearly two months since you read The Song Rising and all you can think about is how you really want TBS4 now. *wishes for a time machine*

Finished rereading the whole series up to this point again. Is it 2020 yet!? I need this book. Dx

I saw the 2* review by some wanker who had a bone to pick. Ms. Shannon's #4 will be the best one yet, I feel my bones. 5*. Bam!

I have no interest in continuing this series, but I have something to say... It doesn't matter how long this takes to come out. It doesn't matter if before she writes and publishes this book, Samanta Shannon decides to go to the moon or mars with Elon Musk and Grimes, goes bungee jumping in every country in the world, and writes and publishes a series of vegan cookbooks before getting back to this series. It. Does. Not. Matter. You can be sad, you can be angry, but for the love of God, leave her ...more

I literally read the whole of Song Rising in one day. Can't wait for this to come out!

I've read that this probably won't be out until 2020...
Why does everything I anticipate take so long to come out? The last season of Game of Thrones, The 4th Bone Season book, my million dollars... okay, that last one was a joke...but still...

According to, it may not be published until 2020. But because she is finalizing the draft as we speak, I wonder if it's possible for a late 2019 release. Anyway, her Tumblr has the unofficial but up-to-date info.

Either way, I've only read TBS1 and I need to reread it.
First off, loved the Bone Season 1-3, however, writing 7 books could harm Ms Shannon if she waits too long, as it happened with GRRM's Game of Thrones. He started the series in 1996 and 24 years later has not completed it yet. So far, he published 5 out of 12 book. I will have to reread the 5 books if he actually publishes another one, but at this point, I'm tried of waiting and don't care about GOTS any longer....

I hope this isn't the case with Bone Season....
