The Bone Season

The Bone Season (The Bone Season, #1)The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The world building in this book is very intricate. It can take time to make sense of everything and I’m not sure I did.

Paige – the lead character – is a clairvoyant, a member of an elite group of humans who can sense auras, spirits, and the aether. There is a hierarchy within the clairvoyant society, and Paige is a DreamWalker, one of the highest and most uncommon gifts.

However, the society in which they live – Scion, looks down on and fears Voyants. They are forced into hiding, searched out and even killed. When Paige gets herself into a dodgy situation on a train and 2 guards are killed she is forced to flee. Unfortunately she is captured, and the place she is taken to is worse than any she could have imagined.

It is full of spirits, poltergeists and dangerous villains. This is an incredible work of fantasy, particularly as a debut by this author! I cannot wait to continue this series!
