So far this has been a no book week (cue sad face) BUT last week Bloomsbury sent me a proof copy of The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon, which is due out in August. I just watched the trailer and it looks so intriguing that I had to share it.
What do you think? Sound like something you’d read? Here’s the blurb:
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.
My review will appear on this site soon. In the meantime … keep up the reading.
