I am Henrietta Howel. The first female sorcerer. The prophesied one. Or am I?
Henrietta Howel can burst into flames. When she is 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?
From the first chapter you are thrown in to non stop captivating action. I originally chose this book due to its immerse and colorful cover. After reading the synopsis I was pulled into a magical fantasy world. With a nice blurb from the queen herself Victoria Aveyard, this book is definitely worth reading. This book brings fourth a certain reminiscent feeling of that first time i read Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. I remember that rush of excitement as I was thrown into a new realm and swept off on an adventure. Jessica Cluess did just that! I truly can’t wait for the next installment in this series! Jessica threw me into my favorite time period of earl Victorian England and sent me on a journey following the Henrietta and a long awaited fulfilled prophecy. Henrietta is such a strong character to me as she discovers her true self and perhaps love (believe me Jessica writes one hell of a triangle). Jessica is very descriptive in her writing and her book plays out in your head and you feel as though you can see the characters she dreamed up come to life. The fight scenes were epic and the world building magnificent. I am glad I gave this book the chance because it deserves a lot of love and appreciation. Thank you to Random House for this book in exchange for my unbiased review. I’d give this book 100 stars if possible. Since however it is based on a 1-5 rating it receives a 5!
