Book Synopsis



A lavishly reimagined and revised tenth anniversary edition of the first novel in the sensational Bone Season series, by the New York Times bestselling author of The Priory of the Orange Tree.

"Intelligent, inventive, dark, and engrossing." NPR

Welcome to Scion. No safer place.

The year is 2059. For two centuries, the Republic of Scion has led an oppressive campaign against unnaturalness in Europe.

In London, Paige Mahoney holds a high rank in the criminal underworld. The right hand of the ruthless White Binder, Paige is a dreamwalker, a rare and formidable kind of clairvoyant. Under Scion law, she commits treason simply by breathing.

When Paige is arrested for murder, she meets the mysterious founders of Scion, who have designs on her uncommon abilities. If she is to survive and escape, Paige must use every skill at her disposal - and put her trust in someone who ought to be her enemy.



Review Quotes




"Epic, surprising, and impeccably imagined, The Bone Season seamlessly melds a near-future dystopian world, with high fantasy stakes, and a truly unique brand of magic. Perfect for those who enjoy intricate plots and eclectic casts of nuanced characters. Ten years on from its original release, Shannon's debut remains one of the most accomplished and original SFF novels I've ever read." --Kate Dylan, author of Mindwalker

"Compelling . . . a heroine every bit as gutsy as Katniss Everdeen. J.K. Rowling's now-grown readers are the natural audience for this complex fantasy . . . There's great imagination at work here." --People

"Exciting . . . The future Shannon presents is frightening and well-imagined, and her complex hierarchy is fascinating." --Washington Post

"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." --NPR.org

"[The Bone Season] invokes both the political tyranny of George Orwell and the bucolic mythmaking of J.R.R. Tolkien." --USA Today

"Engaging and exciting. It's energetic, imaginative, and engrossing . . . Buy it, read it, and enjoy." --TOR.com

"A dystopian thriller that delivers . . . . [The Bone Season] gallops along . . . daring its readers to keep up even as it sinks in its hooks with crackerjack action [and] deftly-accentuated conflict . . . Shannon has a faultless instinct for the prerogatives of storytelling, for the engine that makes an adventure novel go . . . It's the sort of novel you inhale in two or three days." --Salon

"[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." --Starred review, Booklist

"This book is for those who like their dystopian science fiction multilayered, philosophical and complex." --Kirkus Reviews

"Shannon offers up a richly imagined debut . . .The internal mythology is complex and intriguing, the emotional struggle is captivating, and the pace rarely falters as Paige unravels the mysteries and dangers of her new home." --Publishers Weekly

"Part Lisbeth Salander, part Oliver Twist . . . the strong and resourceful Paige is a memorable heroine . . . One buzz book that just might merit its hype." --The Book Case on BookPage.com
