The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
Wow! This is an amazingly fantastic and original book from a young, first time author. I am just astounded. The book is captivating and unique, well-written and thrilling.
I could not put it down. The Bone Season is set in London in 2059. Paige is a 19 year old clairvoyant who is working for the syndicate, part of the criminal underworld in a society where having clairvoyance is a crime. She is captured and taken to Oxford where she is imprisoned by the Rephaim, a supernatural race of beings who want to control all of the clairvoyants. The book is very violent and action packed. Some things are not explained well, but as the first book in a series, I am hoping that those things will be fleshed out better in the ensuing books. I am impressed by this young author and look forward to reading more from her!
