The Bone Season  - Samantha Shannon

Not completely sure where the Harry Potter comparison comes in. I mean no-one's said "yer a clairvoyant, Paige", yet

 

Though I can see why The Bone Season gets compared to The Hunger Games. Both have that age-old trope of a dystopian world with cruel overlords and a hungry underclass, where a feisty young lass gets thrown into a lawless situation and has to fight to survive.

 

But after bitching about the lack of world-building in my previous read; this time I've got no complaints. The world-building here is detailed and many layered. And without getting too info-dumpy, which is a bonus. 

 

Yep, so far I'm definitely enjoying the ride.
