Hey guys! Today I will be review the amazing new fantasy A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess! ( I had to repost this so sorry if it is not new)
Hardcover Edition Length: 416 pages
My rating: 5/5 stars
Henrietta Howel has the power to burst into flames. She has to hide this power, but when she is forced to reveal it to save her friends; instead of being executed, she is taken in to train as a sorcerer. She is taken to London and declared the chosen one, but is she really? As she plays her game of deception, she must also train with a group of male sorcerers and fight terrifying monsters; and save the city and the one she loves from destruction. I really enjoyed this book. I loved how the author took the basic “chosen one” book trope and put a spin on it. I also liked how there were some characters that you started off with one feeling towards them, and then end with a completely different feeling about them. I really enjoyed the main character –Henrietta- because she wasn’t really your typical protagonist. She did a lot of sneaking around and at times seems like she was playing the system, which only made her seem like more of a badass character. I can’t wait for the next book in this series! I would recommend this book for fantasy lovers because it combines awesome magic with strange yet terrifying demon-monsters.
I hope you guys enjoy this book as much as I have!
