Tomorrow marks the release of The Bone Season, the first book in a dazzling new fantasy series by 21-year-old Samantha Shannon. Having just completed her finals at Oxford University, Samantha is already penning the second installment of the book – with a total of seven books to be published in all.

With comparisons to JK Rowling, Tolkien and allusions made to the recent success of The Hunger Games books, Samantha is undoubtedly an enormously creative literary talent and the book is already being developed for film by Andy Serkis via The Imaginarium Studios.

The Bone Season front cover 

The year is 2059 and nineteen-year-old Paige Mahoney is working in the criminal underworld of Scion London, employed to scout for information by breaking into people’s minds. For Paige has an unusual gift, she is a dreamwalker, a clairvoyant and in her world she commits treason simply by breathing. But outside the repressive boundaries of Scion, a powerful, otherworldly race waits in the shadows. The Season has come and Paige’s life is about to change for ever.
