The story is impossibly richer and more insightful, assuringly accessible, more moving than ever, and glitters with exclusive content. The Bone Season is why fantasy exists. This is a hypnotic journey that crackles with dreamlike energy. Of all the Oxfords that literature has conjured, Shannon's Sheol I intrigues and terrifies me the most. Her London is a fever dream. And I would linger in the aether forever if it meant spending longer with Paige Mahoney and Arcturus Mesarthim. Darkly thrilling, and dense with inventive detail, this lyrical dreamscape demands your presence. Come, dreamers - I dare you to lose yourselves in this oneEpic, surprising, and impeccably imagined, The Bone Season seamlessly melds a near-future dystopian world, with high fantasy stakes, and a truly unique brand of magic. Perfect for those who enjoy intricate plots and eclectic casts of nuanced characters. Ten years on from its ori?ginal release, Shannon's debut remains one of the most accomplished and original SFF novels I've ever readA new breed of women authors are claiming fantasy for their own. Leading the charge is Samantha ShannonA dark and exquisitely rendered fantasy unlike anything out there. The Bone Season is a must readSamantha Shannon has a hugely inventive talent and an imagination with seven league boots. She's hit the ground runningA richly dramatic and unadulterated pleasure, filled with horrors, wonders and charmThe book invokes both the political tyranny of George Orwell and the bucolic mythmaking of J.R.R. TolkeinA Hunger Games-esque debutA rapid-fire wonder of a book, where clairvoyants and humans battle it out against scary monsters and super-creeps ... The Bone Season is our next TwilightThe Bone Season is more like the novel that JK Rowling and William Gibson never teamed up to writeA Hunger Games vibe and a few Shades of GreyThe Bone Season plots out a criminal underworld in a future where clairvoyancy exists; part fantasy, part dystopia, all intrigue. It's a world of impressive scope, accompanied by Tolkienesque appendices, glossaries, maps and allIt has conviction in spades ... The Bone Season has the kids vs dystopia kick of The Hunger Games, but while it's better written ... It's also got the star-crossed romance of Twilight A dazzlingly brainy, witty and bewitching tale of outrageous courage, heroic compassion, transcendent love and the quest for freedom ... the first in a thoughtful fantasy series by a brilliant young writerMarks the arrival of an extraordinarily talented British writer set to challenge the worldwide bestseller list domination of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series and Suzanne Collins' The Hunger GamesThe Bone Season, set in 2059, stems from Shannon's interest in works such as The Handmaid's Tale and A Clockwork Orange, which have backdrops of repressive regimes, and in John Donne's poetryA complex and epic dystopiaShannon writes so well that you stay interested, intrigued by the knife-edge motivation of character's with "six-seater lips" whose "high-collard dresses always made her think of the gallows". And although many of the paths walked by The Bone Season will already have been well travelled by fantasy readers, Shannon shows real skill in combining them so easily into an original and enjoyable escapist fictional world. Like so much recent young adult fiction, I suspect this series will appeal to the fearless teenager dwelling within many adults. The ending certainly gripped me to the marrowA dark, embattled, highly wrought fantasy ... Whatever the future holds, there is no doubt that Samantha is the real thing, her own sternest critic and a born storytellerOn the quite wonderful style and craft of words Samantha displays I really cannot heap enough praise - it is remarkably self-assured writing, most especially for a debut ... the most engrossing read I have had so far this year and frankly the most absorbing and compelling debut I've read since the superb Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell. Hugely recommendedShannon's world is meticulously detailed and has a strong internal logic ... Plenty of entertaining action ... The pace of The Bone Season seldom slacks off, and the strong and resourceful Paige is a memorable heroine. This is one buzz book that just might merit its hypeA remarkably accomplished debutImpressively realisedThe Bone Season is enough to transport even hardened sceptics of the fantasy genre into its imaginative realmFrightening and well-imagined ... fascinating ... The large talent on display here suggests just how good Shannon could get in the next six books of this promising seriesPlenty for readers to get absorbed in ... With six novels to go, and an author clearly driven to go deeper and deeper into a unique world, many will surely follow herHad me gripped as if in a vice ... Samantha Shannon is a young writer with a future that looks anything but dystopianThere's a great imagination at work here, and Shannon's just getting startedDynamic and direct ... There is an exciting breadth to Shannon's worldWith echoes of Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games and Trudi Canavan's Black Magician trilogy, this is an excellent debut that will keep the reader gripped all the way to the end - and leave them asking when book two will be releasedDon't just suspend your disbelief - send it to the pictures and sink into this fabulous, epic fantasy thriller ... Lavish, ebullient, escapist ... Bring on the sequelFascinating . It will be very interesting to see where Shannon goes with thisSamantha Shannon's The Bone Season is my perfect cup of tea ...
