A fugitive who will not be silenced

It is a dark time for clairvoyants. Scion is in league with the Rephaim, an extraordinarily powerful, otherworldly race that intends to make humans its slaves. In an unprecedented feat of bravery, Paige Mahoney has succeeded in leading a mass break-out from the brutal camp, Sheol I, where she and other clairvoyants were systematically imprisoned.

Paige is desperate to reach the safety of the London underworld, but the ruthless leader of the Rephaim, Nashira Sargas, is not likely to let her escape so easily...

This new edition contains an exciting preview of the sequel, The Song Rising

Samantha Shannon was still a student when she published the first of her 7-bone cycle The Bone Season set in a gothic vision of future London where humans with a capacity to contact the undead are persecuted for their abilities. This was then followed in the series by The Mime Order and The Song Rising

Read a Waterstones exclusive interview with Samantha Shannon where the author discusses world building, the challenges of fantasy love stories and what lies in store as the Bone Season series continues.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Hugely imaginative * Independent on Sunday *
A trailblazer for young talent ... The way Shannon's characters shift, backstab and fall are as fascinating as the twists and turns of the plot * Independent *
Goes hell-for-leather, all poltergeists and grisly murders and pitched battles in the catacombs of Camden * Sunday Times *
Imagine The Hunger Games written by London's foremost psychogeographer, Iain Sinclair ... Some of the best fight scenes I've read in donkey's years ... Wherever she goes I will follow * Scotland on Sunday *
Shannon throws you into this rich, grimy near-future world * The Times *
Language as rich as a figgy pudding, the best terminology in the genre and gripping, edge-of-the-seat plotting to boot ... Penny dreadful stories clash with electronic tablets. Victorian-style street gangs use their fabulous supernatural powers to call on poltergeists for their skulduggery * Daily Mail *
Paige escapes a brutal prison camp to face darkness and danger as the fate of the underworld unfolds * Stylist *

“Can't wait for the third book!”

This is just as good as the first one, if not better! Samantha Shannon has a brilliant knack for telling stories. I'm excited for what the next book will bring.
