For the past two hundred years the Scion government has led an oppressive campaign against unnaturalness in London.
Clairvoyance in all its forms has been decreed a criminal offence, and those who practise it viciously punished. Forced underground, a clairvoyant underworld has developed, combating persecution and evading capture.
Paige Mahoney, a powerful dreamwalker operating in the Seven Dials district of London, leads a double life, using her unnaturalness illegally while hiding her gift from her father, who works for the Scion regime…
A really good read with an interesting concept! I love that it’s both futuristic and retro at the same time.
I do agree with those that say the start has a lot of information thrown at you but it’s well worth it! I actually listened to the audio book so those info dump bits didn’t seem as slow, though the more action-y bits didn’t seem as engaging as I think they would have been if I’d read the book. It’s also a very long book with a lot of exposition to get to where it’s going. I honestly wouldn’t cut any of it but to me it didn’t feel like Paige was in Oxford for over six months, and a side effect of only seeing a couple of training sessions with Warden is feeling a bit jarred when they refer to it as lots of training. Hehe. But those are minor niggles really.
Another side effect of listening is not knowing how anything is spelt! 😂😂 Makes it much harder to review! I like the concepts and characters, especially Lis. 💙 I am definitely intrigued to find out where it goes next especially between Paige and Jaxon and I hope we get more with Paige and her father.
Overall, I think a 4.5 star book
