The bone season
By Samantha Shannon

This is one of those crossover books that sits neatly on the adult fiction shelves but for many mature YA readers this will also be one to read and enjoy.

It is the year 2059 and Paige Mahoney works in the criminal underworld of Scion London. It is part of a secret cell known as the Seven Seals. Paige scouts for information by breaking into other people’s minds. She is a dreamwalker, a rare kind of clairvoyant, and in this world, the voyants commit treason simply by breathing.
Paige is caught and arrested and encounters a power more sinister even than Scion. The voyant prison is controlled by a powerful, otherworldly race. The creatures want the voyants for soldiers in their army. Paige is assigned to a Rephaite keeper who must train her and keep her safe but who is also her natural enemy. In order to regain her freedom Paige must risk everything.

This is the first book in what is proposed to be a seven book deal. (Not sure I want to hook into a series that long as I’m not very patient waiting for books to be written especially if they are good but will find out after I’ve read the first one which has had great reviews and a great trailer).
