I’ve heard heaps of goodness about this book, so I was really excited to start it! I’m always up for Victorian London, even better when magic is involved!
Henrietta Howell can burst into flames. She has always tried to hide her power, until she has to use them in front of one of Her Majesty’s sorcerers to save a friend. As the first female sorcerer in a century, she is brought to London to train among the country’s other young sorcerers. There, she finds out that she is prophesied to save the world and win the ongoing war against the Ancients that have been terrorizing Britain for years. The only problem: the prophecy is not actually about her.
