The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
Big things are expected from this debut novel from 21-year-old Samantha Shannon, who came up with the idea for The Bone Season while on an internship with a literacy agency in London.
Set in 2059, the book’s heroine, Paige Mahoney, is a clairvoyant, employed within the criminal underworld of Scion London to break into people’s minds.
That is, until she is attacked and transported to a mysterious, secret city. Here, she is taken on as a slave, but remains defiant against her keepers as she fights to discover the truth about the world she is living in.
