'The Bone Season' Review ...

Saturday, 9 May 2015

'Even a dreamer can start a revolution. 
Nineteen year old Paige Mahoney works in the criminal underworld of Scion London. 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...'

Another bloody book review! 
(I can't help it)

As we all know I love fiction, and this is definitely fictional. When a book has a glossary and a map it does kind of mean it's going to need a bit of brain power. To begin with I did find some parts quite hard to follow at first with a lot of new characters, worlds and words being introduced very quickly.

However I could see this becoming the next Hunger Games. With a strong female lead, the story begins in Scion London where the inhabitants are split into the naturals and the clairvoyance. These clairvoyance or unnaturals have supernatural abilities which vary in strength and rarity. Paige being one of the rarest clairvoyance, a dreamwalker is employed to break into people's minds and steal information.

But Paige soon realises this world she has known is a lie and the world beneath hers is controlled by creatures called the Rephiam. An inhuman race who trade safety against the Emin monsters who are primed to invade the city.  

I really enjoyed this story and became really involved as the story progressed. I loved the relationship between Paige and her Keeper and I really hope this will be furthered in the future books (which there have been rumoured to be seven in total!). 

This book definitely has a darkness to it and mixes a revolution theme with the supernatural, keeping all the unnatural parts believable. 

My Rating 4.5/5 

(Cannot wait for the next six)
