The Bone Season

“You may not believe it, but it is what I desire the most in the world. This place has afflicted me with a terrible wanderlust. I long for the fire, for the sights you have seen. Yet here I am, two hundred years after I arrived. Still a prisoner, though I masquerade as a king.”

Set in 2059, where clairvoyance is illegal and many of the world's major cities are under the control of Scion (established to protect "regular humans"), 19-year-old Paige Mahoney is a powerful dreamwalker working for an underground criminal organization called the Seven Seals. When she is tracked down and arrested, she finds out that Scion is just a means to an end : the voyants captured are offered to an otherworldly race, the Rephaim, as soldiers to their army. Once Paige is assigned to Warden - one of the most powerful Rephs - as his student, things are bound to get messy...

A bit confusing at first because you're getting slammed with various info about Scion and clairvoyance and so on but you get over it since the story is quite gripping. The characters are nicely developed and the book's heroine is just as she should be.

Have a lovely day!
