T.J. Burns | 2721 comments I am Henrietta Howel. The first female sorcerer. The prophesied one. Or am I?

Henrietta Howel can burst into flames. When she's 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?

Sea Reads (sea_reads) I'm reading this for a book club that meets on February 10th, so I may start a smidge early. This will probably be my first buddy read in this group, though, so I'm super excited!

Exciting start! I like Nettie and Rook. And Agrippa.

I like the writing – it flows nicely. I have so many questions.

Oh, lordy. It looks like Nettie may be smitten with charming Mr. Magnus. Hopefully not too much so, because he’s no Rook. Of course, I'm rooting for Rook and Nettie!

What's worse is that, despite acting older, she throws tantrums like a 5 year old.

I'm still waiting for the part where it'll tell us about the men that will "fight for her, challenge her, and betray her". Then there's also the part that she may not be the chosen one. This is all from the synopsis btw. I agree with you. The writing is very choppy and the synopsis itself promises a lot of scenarios. I'm already very nervous about this book. So far, the story is not very well tied together and we're still in the beginning.

Quirks (quirkyopinions) | 7310 comments I read 7-8 chapter and I don't think I'll be continuing. The writing isn't good, the story seems to be nothing interesting, I don't like the protagonist, and I can't stand the complete absence of world-building.
