The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

I came across this book on the onlinebookclub.org site as the book of the month for April and decided that it sounded pretty interesting. I read the book in 3 days! I enjoyed it A LOT! Samantha has one heck of an imagination to come up with the dystopian world that she did. After I finished reading the book, I decided to check out some reviews. I read that the book was given a lot of hype about the author being the next J.K.Rowling. With that remark it led readers to look for similarities between this book and future books to come and the Harry Potter Series, which led to reviews coming from both sides of the fence. Either the readers love it or they hate it.

There was a lot of information given, mostly on Paige Mahoney, the main character of the book, She is a clairvoyant who is called a dreamwalker. A lot of reviews commented with information dumping and the book was too long, in my personal opinion, the layout was just right, and the information was very much needed. Also mention of the world the Rephiam come from, complaints about there not being enough information. There was enough to gather that they are basically the aether incarnate…and there are 6 more books supposedly following this one so I am sure there will be more information to follow.

Great book, highly recommend it to all the readers out there. There was a perfect balance throughout the book, action, information, strategy and even the stirrings of a romance. I can’t wait to read the next book! Happy Reading!
