Also, please, go read my friend Mila's review to see a more positive and well-structured point of view on the book. What if what I do has to do with my knowledge of what to do, and doing requires only the knowledge of doing? What would you do then? That's it. Why can't I make something special, because I want to? I take an example from the author. Special snowflakes everywhere!
In this Victorian-era fantasy, sixteen year old Henrietta Howel, who is now a teacher at the Brimthorn orphanage in Yorkshire where she has spent the last eleven years, has developed an ability to magically set things on fire. Through this portal entered the Seven Ancients, magical demons who have been terrorizing England ever since, killing hundreds of people with the help of their Familiars, humans who have been turned into their evil servants. Additionally, the distinction between sorcerers and magicians is a rather fine one, based on certain techniques in their use of magic that have very little apparent practical effect. But when she is found out, rather than being executed or punished she is hailed as the first female sorcerer in ages, the one who, it is prophesied, will save England from the Ancients. Henrietta is whisked away by Agrippa to study sorcery at his London home along with six handsome of course young men. One will challenge her.
