Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This is one I have been anticipating since I read the Buzz Books 2016 Fall/Winter - YA Edition. I have recently picked up The Reader by Traci Chee which I found the same way and I am thoroughly enjoying it which makes me even more excited for this upcoming release! I haven't yet read anything by Jessica Cluess but I am definitely looking forward to this one. Has anyone else got this on their TBR?
|Expected publication: September 20th 2016|
A Shadow Bright and Burning (Kingdom on Fire #1)
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?
