Librarians, the Bloomsbury USA team is eager to approve your NetGalley requests for Samantha Shannon's epic futuristic debut, THE BONE SEASON! This is book one in a seven part saga that will appeal to both teen and adult Fantasy readers.
In the year 2059 several major world cities are under the control of a security force called Scion. Paige Mahoney works in the criminal underworld of Scion London, part of a secret cell known as the Seven Seals. The work she does is unusual: scouting for information by breaking into others' minds. When Paige is arrested and sent to the prison for clairvoyants she is assigned to a Rephaite keeper who will be in charge of her care and training. He is her master and her natural enemy. But if she wants to regain her freedom, Paige will have to learn something of his mind and his own mysterious motives.

"Not only has Shannon dynamically and shrewdly imagined every element of this spooky yet earthy world-at-war, from its unforgiving hierarchy to vile if essential herbal concoctions, encounters with monstrous predatory creatures, and the terror of 'spirit combat,' she has also tapped into the timeless wellsprings of fear and prejudice, repression and resistance. The result is a dazzlingly brainy, witty, and bewitching tale of outrageous courage, heroic compassion, transcendent love, and the quest for freedom." —Booklist (starred review)
