Waiting on Wednesday (12): A Shadow Bright & Burning

Hello lovelies!

As per Wednesday, read on to see what I can’t wait to get my hands on! This week’s pick is from a new favorite author of mine!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, where you can highlight upcoming releases that you are eagerly anticipating!

What I’m waiting on:

A Shadow Bright and Burning
by Jessica Cluess 



Synopsis (via GoodReads): 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?


Release Date: September 20,  2016
Random House
$17.99 (hardcover)
Place to buy:
Amazon, B&N, Book DepositoryGoodReads, IndieBound

  • A female MC with sorcerer powers – yes, please!
  • Set in London — um, YES!
  • Some swoon worthy guys — can’t wait to see 🙂
  • I’m interested in seeing the fantasy world that Cluess has created. I hope that the MC turns out to be kick-ass and that the storyline is attention grabbing. I’m always one for a good fantasy novel–so I hope this one delivers!
