As Scion turns its all-seeing eye on Paige, the mime-lords and mime-queens of the city's gangs are invited to a rare meeting of the Unnatural Assembly. Jaxon Hall and his Seven Seals prepare to take centre stage, but there are bitter fault lines running through the clairvoyant community and dark secrets around every corner. Then the Rephaim begin crawling out from the shadows. But where is Warden? Paige must keep moving, from Seven Dials to Grub Street to the secret catacombs of Camden, until the fate of the underworld can be decided. Will Paige know who to trust? The hunt for the dreamwalker is on.
'Fabulous, epic fantasy thriller.'
'Dark, embattled, highly wrought fantasy ... there is no doubt that Shannon is the real thing.' - Observer
'Slick and vivid ... Gives the fantasy genre a refreshing lease of life. The Bone Season is enough to transport even hardened sceptics of the fantasy genre into its imaginative realm.'
'A clever and courageous character, reminiscent of Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games ,gripped me to the marrow.'
'A rapid-fire wonder of a book.'
