This book was such delicious YA fantasy awesomeness and I really enjoyed it. It didn't hurt that it utilized some of my favorite devices: girl disguised as a boy, boarding school setting, and a romance that was subtle and believable NO insta-love. The prologue set the stage nicely and once I started this book, I had a hard time putting it down. The pacing is good and the story is told in a way that makes you want to keep reading to find out what happens next until suddenly you reach a point where you NEED to know what happens next and then there's no going back after that.
The story is heavily driven by prophecies and seeing how everything plays out is thrilling and intriguing. The characters are fantastic, especially our two protagonists. Iolanthe aka Archer Fairfax is an awesome heroine - her personality is endearing, she's brave, level-headed, strong uhm, as I'm writing this, I'm starting to realize that maybe she was a little TOO perfect.
Oh well, whatever, it didn't bother me.
She possesses incredible magical powers and is destined to defeat the Bad Guy. And then there's Titus, the Prince of the Domain, who has spent years meticulously preparing for the time when he and Iolanthe would finally meet, as she is the only one who can help him with his secret goal.
But while Iolanthe's power is the key to everything, the day they meet also starts the clock ticking for the prince and marks his impending death. There was an air of tragedy that surrounded him, and despite all his highly calculated actions and necessarily aloof demeanor, there was never a scene with him where my heart didn't break a little for the guy. His character was developed very well and was one of my favorite things of the story.
The setting of this book is pretty cool -- one moment you're holding your breath as Iolanthe and Titus battle dragons and wyverns in a castle and then later you can find yourself cheering Fairfax in a cricket match and grinning at the easy camaraderie amongst the rowdy boys of Eton College. While I was definitely confused in the beginning about how the magical world and 19th century London existed together, it did eventually click in my head and I found myself able to roll with the world-building -- it was actually kinda fun.
This probably isn't for the heavy duty fantasy readers, but it was great for what it was. The end was a tiny bit unsatisfying it felt a little anticlimactic , but I'll definitely be reading the next book -- and don't worry, no cliffhanger. The Burning Sky starts out interestingly enough- a girl who is destined to be the most powerful mage, like, ever, accidentally draws the attention of the baddies when she calls down lightening. Instantly, her guardian freaks out, a prince appears out of nowhere to save her, and Iolanthe finds herself whisked away to Victorian England and… Wait, what? For me, that is when everything came screeching to a halt.
I have no clue. Apparently Atlantis is a group of mages or something that rule the magical realm?
Description: The burning sky
I guess? Anyway, Prince Titus has planned his whole life to find a powerful mage who is destined to save them all. When he finds Iolanthe and tries to convince her of her destiny, she flat-out refuses.
Need Help? Summary: This special ebook edition of Sherry Thomas's extraordinary romantic fantasy debut, The Burning Sky -- the first in the Elemental Trilogy -- features a repackaged cover for her legions of romance fans and an excerpt from the sequel, The Perilous Sea. 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.
