About the Book :
The year is 2059. Nineteen-year-old Paige Mahoney is working in the criminal underworld of Scion London, based at Seven Dials, employed by a man named Jaxon Hall. Her job: to scout for information by breaking into people’s minds. For Paige is a dreamwalker, a clairvoyant and, in the world of Scion, she commits treason simply by breathing.
It is raining the day her life changes for ever. Attacked, drugged and kidnapped, Paige is transported to Oxford – a city kept secret for two hundred years, controlled by a powerful, otherworldly race.

I first read The Bone Season over three years ago. It was sophomore year of high school, I had my Chemistry and Physics finals the next day, and I made the choice to read just a FEW chapters of this book during my break. OF COURSE, ANY BOOKDRAGON WORTH HIS/ HER SALT KNOWS THAT A FEW CHAPTERS IN AN INCOMPREHENSIBLE TERM. And so, instead of finishing my revision, I sped read this book, dying for more Paige and Warden Scenes and barely concentrating on the plot. I bought myself a copy of The Mime Order later, but for some reason, I never really got to reading it. #TBRProblems. And so, when the LOVELY Folks over at Bloomsbury India sent me a SIGNED copy of book three, The Song Rising, I KNEW it was time to dive back in. (I’m also TOTALLY congratulating myself for finding the TIME to re-read and not cop out and read a recap) Long story short, THIS WAS ONE OF THE MOST BRILLIANTLY CONSTRUCTED WORLDS WITH A HOST OF CHARACTERS I WAS ROOTING FOR FROM PAGE ONE AND I NEED MORE OF THIS WORLD AND EVERYONE IN. Things I Loved: 1. THE WORLD BUILDING: Hands down, The Bone Season has THE BEST WORLD BUILDING OUT THERE. I adored jumping into a futuristic London where breathing for Clairvoyants is considered High Treason. I LOVED THE SYNDICATE, Paige and even the very building of Sheol I. IT WAS ALL SO BRUTALLY REAL with the best host of characters. 2. PAIGE MAHONEY: I liked Paige when I initially read the book, but reading it again made her seem SO MUCH MORE BADASS. It’s so hard to describe who she is, but this girl was STRONG, TOUGH, POWERFUL AND SO SO REAL – I LOVED HER. "This was what my spirit loved to do, to wander in strange lands. It couldn't stand being trapped in one body. it had wanderlust." 3. WARDEN: I have this policy – give me the worst guy in the book and I’ll probably feel something for him instead of for the Golden Boy/ Prom King.
