Book Review: A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Clueless
A Shadow Bright and Burning tells the story of a girl, Henrietta who holds a power that could get her killed. When she is discovered, protecting her friend she is taken to London for she is the prophesied chosen one who will defeat the Ancients who were called into existence years ago and are now ravaging England. There she meets her fellow sorcerer trainees who will test her power and her heart. One will challenge her. One will fight for her. One will betray her.
But she is not the chosen one.
As Henrietta lives a lie she delves into the secrets hidden within her and those she has trusted. As battle looms she struggles to find the risks she will take for the city and the ones she loves.
Oh my gosh this book was amazing. I fled through this book eagerly awaiting every twist and turn that A Shadow Bright and Burning presented to me. The main character was so intriguing and I loved how the author portrayed her and her growth. I adored how I spent the entire time wondering who the real love interest was because their was some tension between Henrietta, the main character, and three other guys each with very separate personalities. For those who have read the book, I was and still am rooting for Blackwood because I like his mysterious and serious character.
I cannot wait to put the next books in the series on hold! I just looked them up and read the synopses and there is a real chosen one called Maria! What? And Henrietta had plans to marry Blackwood!! The plot thickens. I want them now! No, the third book doesn’t come out until October! I’m going to cry.
