Review of The Bone Season

Samantha Shannon's debut novel (the first of seven in a series) is an adult read, but older teens will also enjoy the book.  The year is 2059 and Paige, a rare type of clairvoyant, is captured in London and taken to a prison in Oxford.  The city has been kept secret and is governed by aliens.  Paige's trainer is called Warden and a curious relationship develops between them.  Shannon creates an interesting world with a complex society of clairvoyants.  You find yourself rooting for Paige and Warden to escape the prison, and the ending is open to a sequel.  3 Elves - Recommended
