Review of A Shadow Bright & Burning-Jessica Cluess

A  very fast and thrilling read, I enjoyed all of the characters in this fantasy.  "The chosen one" is a female for a change, which is refreshing.  When an orphan, Henrietta, is discovered to have sorcerer powers (the first female in 100 years), she goes to London to train with other apprentice sorcerers to fight the Ancients, evil beings who are terrorizing the British Isles.  Because magicians opened the door to the evil ones and allowed them in, magicians are killed when discovered.  But is Henrietta really a sorcerer or a magician with sorcerer-like powers?  I'm awaiting the sequel in the Kingdom n Fire series... 3 Elves - Recommended for teens and adults
