Welcome to Scion, no safer place.
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, kidnapped and drugged, 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 creature with dark honey
skin and heavy-lidded yellow eyes. 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 – a young woman
learning to harness her powers in a world where everything has been
taken from her. It 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.
