WoW Pick of the Week!



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It is a chance to share those new releases were are super anxious to get our hands on and read.

Okay I admit the cover caught my attention first but then I zeroed in on "Victorian London" and I was completely sold and a debut author too so really, anything is possible with this one.







Book Description:


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?


Exhilarating and gripping, Jessica Cluess's spellbinding fantasy introduces Henrietta Howel, a powerful, unforgettable heroine, and an entertaining world filled with magic, monsters, and mayhem.

  2. I love it. Always favor reading chosen one books when the chosen turns out not to be the one. Bring on the calamity! What if Neville had been picked as the chosen one instead of Harry? Tell me you haven't wondered about it?!

  7. I really like that cover and the promise of Victorian London, but I've been hearing that it might have a love square, so I think this will be one I wait for the sequel for.

    1. A love square? *sigh* Darn it. Maybe I will hold off on it as well. :(

  8. I like the premise but all the boys vying for her love is not sitting well with me. So I think I'll pass on this one, but I hope you'll love it. I'll be on the lookout for your review, Ali!
