Release Date: March 9, 2017
Publisher: Pan Macmillan

From Goodreads:

The gifted hide their talents, but dare they step into the light?

Micah's Chimaera powers are growing, until his dark visions overwhelm him. Drystan is forced to take him to Dr Pozzi, to save his life. But can they really trust the doctor, especially when a close friend is revealed to be his spy?

Meanwhile, violent unrest is sweeping the country, as anti-royalist factions fight to be heard. Then three chimaera are attacked, after revealing their existence with the monarchy's blessing - and the struggle becomes personal. A small sect decimated the chimaera in ancient times and nearly destroyed the world. Now they've re-emerged to spread terror once more. Micah will discover a royal secret, which draws him into the heart of the conflict. And he and his friends must risk everything to finally bring peace to their land.

I've been waiting for this for a while, reading Pantomime and Shadowplay wrecked me. They were sweet and melancholy and magical and secretive and heart-breaking. I think this is only coming out in the UK though, which is too bad, but I don't think it would be too hard to order it. I wonder how sad this is going to be, how much Micah is going to be put through when all he wants to do is survive and live his life.
