Bonus points right there.
I really did enjoy this one. Strong heroine without being a Mary-Sue, excellent world-building and a very interesting concept. (Still can't see the Harry Potter comparisons, mind you).
I know there have been a lot of comparisons made with The Hunger Games, but if The Bone Season reminded me of anything, it was Angelfall, but that could be because Angelfall is still at the front of my mind having only recently read it.
Quite often I will read the first book in a series and either wish it was a stand-alone or decide not to bother with the rest of the books. However, with this one, I'm definitely going to carry on and see where Paige goes next.
