The Bone Season (The Bone Season, #1)The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

what, am i osteo-enthralled lately? two books with bones in the title… hmmm.

this one is total popcorn, but rather stale popcorn, full of tropes and cliches and bad romance.

sooo…. young woman with clairvoyant powers is kidnapped by baddies… then (yawn) chosen by the one guy who never chooses slaves… then complications ensue and we find there’s a rebellion zzzzzzz…… !snort! excuse me, did i fall asleep?

i never really know what to write about books like this. they’re well-enough-done–nothing here i can really bitch about, but nothing here to delight or surprise either. just everything you might expect.

which, i guess, makes it not really worth writing any more about. skip the sequel. hell, skip this book.
