A SHADOW BRIGHT AND BURNING

Jessica Cluess

"Cluess yanks the reader through closed doors and opened windows of her dark fantasy world--chock full of intriguing characters, ones who attach their imaginable personas into every thought: blocking any hope of escape until the very last word." --Lisa Loucks Christenson, Book Divas


The Next Big YA Fantasy Series- A SHADOW BRIGHT AND BURNING (9/20/16)

Henrietta Howl, the protagonist of A SHADOW BRIGHT AND BURNING (on sale 9/20/16) is not your average Victorian woman. First of all, she can burst into flames. Secondly, she’s the only female sorcerer in the world. And she’s the subject of a prophecy stating that only she can save London from the monsters terrorizing the city.

When she is 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?


“Vivid characters, terrifying monsters, and world building as deep and dark as the ocean.”
-- Victoria Aveyard, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Red Queen

“Cluess gamely turns the chosen-one trope upside down in this smashing dark fantasy.”
--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“Unputdownable. I loved the monsters, the magic, and the teen warriors who are their world's best hope! Jessica Cluess is an awesome storyteller!”
--Tamora Pierce, New York Times bestselling author

“A fun, inventive fantasy. I totally have a book crush on Rook.”
--Sarah Rees Brennan, New York Times bestselling author

“Pure enchantment. I love how Cluess turned the 'chosen one' archetype on its head. With the emotional intensity of my favorite fantasy books, this is the kind of story that makes you forget yourself.”
--Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Star-Touched Queen

“A glorious, fast-paced romp of an adventure. Jessica Cluess has built her story out of my favorite ingredients: sorcery, demons, romance, and danger.”
--Kelly Link, author of Pretty Monsters
