    Have you read The Bone Season yet? No? Well, you’d better get a wriggle on.

    The Bone Season is the first in a seven-part book series written by the super-talented, ambitious and very young (she’s just 22) Samantha Shannon.

    The New York Times and Sunday Times bestseller is based in 2059 and sees nineteen-year-old Paige Mahoney working in the criminal underworld. Her job is to scout for information by breaking into people’s minds.

    Think The Hunger Games meets Twilight. And we mean that in a good way.

    Samantha’s writing is so good and her imagination so vivid that you can’t help but get drawn in to the fantasy world she’s created. She’s certainly an exciting female author to keep your eye on.

    The Bone Season is out in paperback now, so read it quick sharp before the second book, The Mime Order, is released in October 2014.
