How do I describe this book without breaking out into rabid fangirl status UMMMM how about THE INFERNAL DEVICES THE BURNING SKY PRIDE AND PREJUDICE as in Mr Darcy Yup I went there It s a Victorian England fantasy and it was SOOOOO goodNow I ll be honest Usually I don t like Victorian settings for my reads something about society being too proper and women being too demure and I just get bored Take Clockwork Angel while I love certain aspects of that series there were parts that just dragged because of the time era and diction In ASBAB It never dragged There were never any slow parts or mindless era dropping paragraphs setting a scene with Victorian imageryroutineetc Every chapter felt important and no character too polite It was still the Victorian era but it just felt modern and refreshingThe cast of characters was brilliant No one can convince me that George Blackwell is not secretly a Mr Darcy in disguise His first condescending words describing Henrietta Their argument at the dinner table over high vs lowborns Their mutual at first animosity His grudging respect of her as the book goes on view spoilerI believe Blackwell is end game Rook is clearly meant for a dark path but while Henrietta has feelings for him I think those are as the brother she never had And Magnus well Magnus I do like despite his situationwhat he did but he s not meant for Henrietta Blackwell is that slow burning fire filled with grudging respect and building tension Mark my words he is end game I mean why else end the book on a chapter with Henrietta just talking with him And she s going to stay at his manor now SIGNS I tell you hide spoiler

Reviewed by Rabid ReadsI began reading A SHADOW BRIGHT AND BURNING with trepidation I d read the preview months prior and at the time I d been greatly impressed but since then I d suffered numerous disappointments of the finished product not remotely living up its promise varietyAnd initially my inner cynic taunted me pointing out perceived flaws whispering to get it over with and DNF already Then a hobgoblin unexpectedly appeared and I told my inner cynic to shut its trap Bc FAE From there the already interesting early Victorian England this version plagued by seven Ancients that walk and talk and uack like demons expanded into a spectacular alternate version of our own world with sharp toothed faerie dressmakers tricksy not to be trusted but oh so charming Magicians estates gifted by fae royalty yet still recognizable by the ugly ugly prejudice Henrietta Howel is a witch in a time when witches are burned An orphan she now teaches at the charity school where she was raised The charity school currently being visited by a royal sorcerer A royal sorcerer whom Henrietta fears was sent to investigate the rumors of mysterious fires Mysterious fires that she herself is responsible for But when she meets the man she is surprised to discover a kindred spirit I find a dash of insolence to be uite enjoyable from time to time Then we discover that Henrietta is not a witch and Agrippa the royal sorcerer not only believes that she is a rare female sorcerer but also that she is the girl prophesied to take England back from its demonic invadersIs Henrietta this so called Chosen OneMaybe she is and maybe she isn t After reading the last page I was still undecided The only thing I knew positively was that whatever the answer it s not so simple Also not so simple is the answer to the inevitable uestion is there a love triangleThere are two definitive love interests maybe a third if you re a particularly contrary sort who never goes for the obvious choices but the way Cluess handles the situation Honestly neither are good candidates for our girl And anyway it s not one of those angsty dueling for the lady s affection scenarios Option 1 is a comfortable childhood friend and option 2 is a flamboyant and hilarious blue blood you don t take seriously until option 1 starts to look like a Red Shirt then you don t take him seriously bc REASONS then option 1 looks less and less like a Red Shirt but still you can t help feeling like no good can come of it Basically I felt option 1 is only in the running bc familiar and option 2 made me swoon a time or two but I never gave him my heart whispers I may be the contrary sort I mentioned earlier BOTTOM LINE though Henrietta s future HEA may at this time be unclear I didn t feel jerked around or manipulated like with so many other love uadrilles trianglesAs for other typically YA aspects some of you try to avoid there were surprisingly few I felt the first few chapters were a bit rushed the circumstances coming together far too serendipitously but once we got to where we were going things began to unfold naturally and often hilariously Beyond that I had a couple of minor issues where Henrietta s not so simple situation and her fear of discovery were referenced a bit than necessary and a couple of times she was appallingly self absorbed view spoilerlike when she was newly arrived at Agrippa s home and Rook was sent around back bc servants don t use the front door and she potentially the most celebrated discovery in years comments on how she feels alone flares nostrils hide spoiler
