Gracias a un aviso de mi buen amigo Miquel Codony, me entero de que The Bone Season de Samantha Shannon (recientemente publicada en nuestro país como La era de huesos por Fantascy) se encuentra de oferta en formato digital en varias tiendas online. Por ejemplo, en Amazon se puede adquirir por 1,29€ y en Kobo por 1,51€ (aunque se pueden usar cupones para descontar aún más el precio).
Ésta es la sinopsis del libro:
The year is 2059. Nineteen-year-old Paige Mahoney is working in the criminal underworld of Scion London, based at Seven Dials, employed by a man named Jaxon Hall. Her job: to scout for information by breaking into peoples minds. For Paige is a dreamwalker, a clairvoyant and, in the world of Scion, she commits treason simply by breathing.
It is raining the day her life changes for ever. Attacked, drugged and kidnapped, Paige is transported to Oxford a city kept secret for two hundred years, controlled by a powerful, otherworldly race. Paige is assigned to Warden, a Rephaite with mysterious motives. He is her master. Her trainer. Her natural enemy. But if Paige wants to regain her freedom she must allow herself to be nurtured in this prison where she is meant to die.
introduces a compelling heroine and also introduces an extraordinary young writer, with huge ambition and a teeming imagination. Samantha Shannon has created a bold new reality in this riveting debut.
