Waiting on Wednesday: A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. This meme spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

A Shadow Bright and Burning
Jessica Cluess
Expected Publication: September 20, 2016
Genre: YA Urban Fantasy
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.
I've been WAITING for the cover of this book to be revealed before featuring it on WoW. It's pretty isn't it? All veilfire mage-y stuff. 

I've had this book... bookmarked for ages. Extraordinary abilities. Check. Special little snowflake (rolls eyes). Check. Not really the chosen one this special little snowflake (uhm. okay). Check. Handsome young men (I smell love triangle or some other geometric shape). Check. Victorian London. Check.
