Review: The Bone Season

The Bone Season
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In the beginning it started with too much explaining but as the world and the rules later even get more complicated, I can accept that.
Great ideas and fantasy world.
Only little romance, more like hints. One short sex-scene, fast and for some maybe kinky.
Also no love triangle, for those who hate these.
Two love-twists which where great, one of them I did not see coming, both turn out the way I like ...
A great story so far, and I cannot really wait for the next book which as of now is less than a week from being published (Jan 27,th 2015), lucky me!
A complicated world, and due to the changes since 1859 (I think), not very realistic, but totally escapist story of the beginning of a revolution, the second one in the timeline of this world, since clairvoyants where recognized.
As this is supposed to be a trilogy, and the next book is not even published, I cannot say more, but this book as a standalone with an end is great, although a lot of things can go wrong or right in the next book, I recommend it highly and a solid 5star.

  1. Not a trilogy, I read it is supposed to become a 7-book deal. Well, we will see.
