A Shadow Bright and Burning: Waiting on Wednesday

Publication date: September 20th, 2016
Publisher: Random House BFYR
Series: Kingdom on Fire #1
Format: Hardcover, 416 pages

Henrietta Howel can burst into flames. Forced to reveal her power to save a friend, she's shocked when instead of being executed, she's invited to train as one of Her Majesty's royal sorcerers.

Thrust into the glamour of Victorian London, Henrietta is declared the chosen one, the girl who will defeat the Ancients, bloodthirsty demons terrorizing humanity. She also meets her fellow sorcerer trainees, handsome young men eager to test her power and her heart. One will challenge her. One will fight for her. One will betray her.

But Henrietta Howel is not the chosen one. As she plays a dangerous game of deception, she discovers that the sorcerers have their own secrets to protect. With battle looming, what does it mean to not be the one? And how much will she risk to save the city--and the one she loves?

Any YA that has a setting in Victorian London immediately goes into my TBR list. I absolutely LOVE that time period and combined with magic, it's sure to be a hit.

That cover is also beautiful!

So, what do you think? Does this sound like something you would read? Tell me what you are waiting on this week.
