Reviews

"Compelling . . . a heroine every bit as gutsy as Katniss Everdeen. J.K. Rowling's now-grown readers are the natural audience for this complex fantasy . . . There's great imagination at work here." --People

"[The Bone Season] invokes both the political tyranny of George Orwell and the bucolic mythmaking of J.R.R. Tolkien." --USA Today

"The Bone Season has got a lot going for it, particularly its clipped pace and exciting story line. The future Shannon presents is frightening and well-imagined, and her complex hierarchy is fascinating." --Washington Post

"Intelligent, inventive, dark, and engrossing . . . Shannon has remarkable talent for world-building . . . . but her most sublime otherworldly creation is the complex, ever evolving, scrappy yet touching Paige Mahoney." --NPR.org

"A dystopian thriller that delivers . . . . [The Bone Season] gallops along . . . daring its readers to keep up even as it sinks in its hooks with crackerjack action [and] deftly-accentuated conflict . . . Shannon has a faultless instinct for the prerogatives of storytelling, for the engine that makes an adventure novel go . . . It's the sort of novel you inhale in two or three days." --Salon

"Engaging and exciting. It's energetic, imaginative, and engrossing . . . Buy it, read it, and enjoy." --TOR.com

"[A] dazzlingly brainy, witty, and bewitching tale of outrageous courage, heroic compassion, transcendent love, and the quest for freedom . . . the first in a thoughtful fantasy series by a brilliant young writer." --Starred review, Booklist

"This book is for those who like their dystopian science fiction multilayered, philosophical and complex." --Kirkus Reviews

"Shannon offers up a richly imagined debut . . .The internal mythology is complex and intriguing, the emotional struggle is captivating, and the pace rarely falters as Paige unravels the mysteries and dangers of her new home." --Publishers Weekly

"Part Lisbeth Salander, part Oliver Twist . . . the strong and resourceful Paige is a memorable heroine . . . One buzz book that just might merit its hype." --The Book Case on BookPage.com
