The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
Published August 20th 2013
The year is 2059. Nineteen-year-old Paige Mahoney is working in the criminal underworld of Scion London, based at Seven Dials, employed by a man named Jaxon Hall. Her job: to scout for information by breaking into people’s minds. For Paige is a dreamwalker, a clairvoyant and, in the world of Scion, she commits treason simply by breathing.
It is raining the day her life changes for ever. Attacked, drugged and kidnapped, Paige is transported to Oxford – a city kept secret for two hundred years, controlled by a powerful, otherworldly race. Paige is assigned to Warden, a Rephaite with mysterious motives. He is her master. Her trainer. Her natural enemy. But if Paige wants to regain her freedom she must allow herself to be nurtured in this prison where she is meant to die.
I’d seen so much hype around this series and I put it off for so long because of that. But I’m so glad I finally picked it up because this book is amazing and I can’t wait to dive into the next book.
The concept is incredibly well thought out and so different from anything that I’ve read. The world building is a little slow and confusing at times but there is a bunch of world building through out the book. It took me a bit to really grasp everything but that’s just because there was so much to take in.
I adored the characters so much! Paige is so well written and such an amazing character. I loved her from the start.
I definitely recommend this book to everyone. I loved everything about this book. The Bone Season is now one of my favorite books.
