It is 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. Paige is a dreamwalker, a rare kind of clairvoyant, and in this world, the voyants commit treason simply by breathing. But when Paige is captured and arrested, she encounters a power more sinister even than Scion. The voyant prison is a separate city—Oxford, erased from the map two centuries ago and now controlled by a powerful, otherworldly race. These creatures, the Rephaim, value the voyants highly—as soldiers in their army. Paige is assigned to a Rephaite keeper, Warden, who will be in charge of her care and training. He is her master. 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.The Bone Season introduces a compelling heroine—a young woman learning to harness her powers in a world where everything has been taken from her. It also introduces an extraordinary young writer, with huge ambition and a teeming imagination. Samantha Shannon has created a bold new reality in this riveting debut.

Czasem ten mój sposób nie jest za dobry, bo trafi mi się książka, która ...
Maybe it's me but I've been reading/listening to underwhelming books lately and this one was one of them. Some people were born with powers (reading cards, going into dreams, calling ghosts, etc.) and they are heavily discriminated against to the point that most are put to death. Paige is a dream wa...
If I said that The Bone Season is like a roller-coaster, I would be lying. Most people would think this is a bad since roller-coasters are the most exciting rides at amusement parks. Well, most people are wrong. I am of the opinion that roller-coasters are just metal death traps with a deceiving nam...
„Jesteśmy mniejszością, której świat nie akceptuje, nawet fantazjowanie o nas jest zakazane. Wyglądamy jak inni. Czasem zachowujemy się jak inni. (…) Nie wszyscy z nas wiedzą, kim jesteśmy. Niektórzy umierają, nie mając pojęcia o swojej prawdziwej naturze. Inni wiedzą, dlatego nigdy nie pozwolim...
I've owned this book for maybe three years, I bought it with a load of other books and just never got around to it. I finally decided to pick it up because I have the hardback version and it was taking up a lot of room on my TBR shelf! As this suggests, I wasn't overly eager to begin this novel, and...
