about

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.

The Bone Season introduces a compelling heroine and also introduces an extraordinary young writer, with huge ambition and a teeming imagination. Samantha Shannon has created a bold new reality in this riveting debut.

Editorial Reviews

"Terrific--intelligent, inventive, dark, and engrossing . . . Shannon has remarkable talent for world-building . . . But her most sublime otherworldly creation is the complex, ever evolving, scrappy yet touching Paige Mahoney . . . [She] has me hooked." -NPR.com"Invokes both the political tyranny of George Orwell and the . . . mythmaking of J.R.R. Tolkien." -USA Today"Action-filled . . . Shannon is likely on the brink of literary stardom." -New York"[A] dazzlingly brainy, witty, and bewitching tale of outrageous courage, heroic compassion, transcendent love, and the quest for freedom . . . the first in a thoughtful fantasy series by a brilliant young writer." -Booklist (starred review)"This book is for those who like their dystopian science fiction multilayered, philosophical and complex." -Kirkus Reviews
