Samantha Shannon Unveils Official Cover Of 'The Priory Of The Orange Tree' Featuring An Epic Dragon

As a reader you'd think that author Samantha Shannon would only write novels in her The Bone Season universe since she'd only release the third of the seven projected novels. But writers has a lot of ideas that came into their minds and they have to write it all away when inspiration strikes. That is why even if the fans are clamoring to get their hands on the fourth book of The Bone Season series, Shannon went ahead and wrote a novel that has nothing to do with Paige Mahoney and her gang.

The book in question is titled The Priory of the Orange Tree and it is a behemoth of a book with almost 900 pages. The said book has once again been acquired by Bloomsbury Publishing and its epic and gorgeous cover has been recently revealed. You can thank Ivan Belikov for the illustration and David Mann for the design.

Check out the cover of The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon.

Across the dark sea, Tané has trained all her life to be a dragonrider, but is forced to make a choice that could see her life unravel.

Meanwhile, the divided East and West refuse to parley, and forces of chaos are rising from their sleep.
