The Bone Season


THE NEW YORK TIMES, SUNDAY TIMES AND ASIAN AGE BESTSELLER

Welcome to Scion. No safer place.

The year is 2059. Paige Mahoney is working in the criminal underworld of Scion London. Her job: to scout for information by breaking into people's minds. For Paige is a dreamwalker, a rare kind of clairvoyant – and under Scion law, she commits treason simply by breathing.

Elsewhere, however, there is a seat of power even greater than Scion. And they have a different design for Paige and her uncommon abilities...

The Bone Season is the first in a series of seven fantasy novels.


Content warnings:
