I have had my eye on this week's WoW title for a while now. The cover hasn't been released yet, and I'm far too impatient to wait for it, so you will have to make do with the book description only this week. The author has been described as the next J.K Rowling, which, let's face it, is a description near impossible to meet, but I am definitely interested in checking out her book, The Bone Season. This article states that it landed a six-figure deal with Bloomsbury.
Here is the book description:
The Bone Season begins in 2059. Nineteen-year-old Paige Mahoney is working in the criminal underworld of London, based at Seven Dials, employed by a man named Jaxon Hall. She works as an envoy between secret cells: she drops in an out of people's minds. For Paige is a lucid dreamer, a clairvoyant, and in her world, the world of Scion, she commits high treason simply by breathing. It is raining the day her life changes forever. Attacked, kidnapped and transported to Oxford, a city that has been kept secret for two hundred years, she meets Warden, a Rephaite with dark honey skin and heavy-lidded yellow eyes. He is the single most beautiful and frightening thing she has every laid eyes on – and he will become her "keeper".Title: The Bone Season
Author: Samantha Shannon

Quite honestly, I think labelling someone the next J.K Rowling can only result in disappointment (unless she really IS that good), so I don't want to think of her like that. The book sounds great though and can't wait to see how it does. What do you think?
