Review: The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas

Thursday, June 26, 2014
Why I chose this book: 
I bought this book when it first came out with every intention of reading it, but somehow it got lost in my bookshelves, and I didn't pick it up until I realized that Sherry Thomas is going to be at an author event later this summer. Of course, I had to read it before I met her. 


The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas
Publisher: Blazer + Bray
Publish Date: September 17th, 2013
Format: Hardback
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Historical Fiction
Synopsis:
It all began with a ruined elixir and a bolt of lightning.

Iolanthe Seabourne is the greatest elemental mage of her generation—or so she's been told. The one prophesied for years to be the savior of The Realm. It is her duty and destiny to face and defeat the Bane, the most powerful tyrant and mage the world has ever known. This would be a suicide task for anyone, let alone a reluctant sixteen-year-old girl with no training.


Guided by his mother's visions and committed to avenging his family, Prince Titus has sworn to protect Iolanthe even as he prepares her for their battle with the Bane. But he makes the terrifying mistake of falling in love with the girl who should have been only a means to an end. Now, with the servants of the tyrant closing in, Titus must choose between his mission—and her life. (Goodreads)
