Samantha Shannon is the most talked-about debut author of 2013. She has astounded the book world with her hugely ambitious and imaginative novel The Bone Season, the first in a seven-part series set in a dystopian London. Fast-paced and rich in detail, this gripping story has won her acclaim from the likes of Susan Hill and the film rights have already been sold to Andy Serkis’s production company.

The year is 2059. Nineteen-year-old Paige Mahoney is working in the criminal underworld of Scion London,  scouting for information by breaking into people’s minds. For Paige is a dreamwalker and, in the world of Scion, a traitor.  Attacked and kidnapped, Paige is transported to Oxford – a city kept secret for two hundred years and controlled by a powerful, otherworldly race. She will have to gather all her courage and strength to survive.

Come and meet this beguiling author and find out what the hype is all about.
