Summary

Book one of The Ancestors' Secrets, a Golden Quill Award Winner alternate history, urban fantasy, romantic magical realism trilogy. 
Love, ancient tribal legends, secrets, time travel and magical powers collide in a compelling fantasy series, hailed "Original, Mystical and Unique." 
When a young doctor, Ilona, starts to develop unusual powers, her life and her beliefs change. Thrown into a world of clan mysteries, traditions and secrets, she begins remembering her mother's instructions concealed as rhymes. 
Punished by the ancestors long ago, Mora has waited centuries for the chance to reunite with her beloved Joland. Now, she seeks to gain the power to rule the ancient clan with a strict hierarchy and deadly laws that still exist hidden among us. 
Ilona has been chosen by the ancestors to stop Mora and save the future of the clan. 
In her quest to protect her family and the future of our clan, Ilona must activate her Chameleon ability and obtain unimaginable powers. She can use her powers for absolute good or absolute evil; the choice is up to her. 
She has been in love with her best friend but is also drawn to the stranger who appears in a peculiar dream. She must sort through her feelings about the men in her life while she travels through time from present day to back when her people were nomads, to the castles of the 14th century, as she struggles to overcome the obstacles placed in her path. 
Does she have the strength to fight evil? 
Will Ilona accept her destiny? Can she find true love? Will she use her unimaginable powers for good or evil?

    The New York Times bestselling first novel in the Bone Season series, an epic fantasy about a young woman fighting to use her powers and stay alive in an England entirely different from our own.  
     
    In 2059, Scion has taken over most of the world's cities, promising safety for all the citizens it deems worthy and wiping out clairvoyants wherever it can find them.  
     
    Paige Mahoney, though, is a clairvoyant--and a criminal just for existing. Paige is determined to fight Scion's power, and as part of the Seven Seals, Paige has found a use for her powers: she scouts for information by breaking into others' minds as they dream.  
     
    But when Paige is captured and arrested, she encounters a power more sinister even than Scion. The voyant prison is a separate city, controlled by a powerful, otherworldly race. These creatures, the Rephaim, value the voyants highly-as soldiers in their army.  
     
    Paige is assigned to a Rephaite keeper, Warden, who will be in charge of her care and training. He is her master. Her natural enemy. But if she wants to regain her freedom, Paige will have to learn something of his mind and his own mysterious motives. 
     
    The Bone Season introduces a compelling heroine-a young woman learning to harness her powers in a world where everything has been taken from her. It 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.
