Can't Wait Wednesday

A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess {Waiting on Wednesday}

Waiting on Wednesday“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to spotlight upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

This week’s pick is the historical fiction novel I’ve been saying I should read more of for a while now. Except it has sorcerers, a girl who can burst into flames and a chosen one prophecy.

But hey, it’s also set in Victorian London so that counts as historical fiction, right? Anyway, it sounds amazing!

My pick for this week: A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess

What it’s about:

I am Henrietta Howel. The first female sorcerer. The prophesied one. Or am I?

Henrietta Howel can burst into flames. When she’s brought to London to train with Her Majesty’s sorcerers, she meets her fellow sorcerer trainees, young men eager to test her powers and her heart. One will challenge her. One will fight for her. One will betray her. As Henrietta discovers the secrets hiding behind the glamour of sorcerer life, she begins to doubt that she’s the true prophesied one. With battle looming, how much will she risk to save the city—and the one she loves?
