The Bone Season (The Bone Season #1)

Published August 20th 2013 by Bloomsbury USA

Pages:452 pages

Source: Bought

Genre:Fiction, Fantasy

Format: Hardback

This is a book that had a lot of potential, but moved a bit too slow. It seemed to have a lot of build-up for further books. Not a whole lot really happens until further into the tale and Paige seems, at times, a little more childish than strong. But, there are some interesting plots developed and a pretty fascinating world created here. I am hoping that this will be just the lead-in to a much more entertaining novel.

Three out of five stars
