Praise for A POISON DARK AND DROWNING
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.

I don't give out a lot of fives and this may only be technically a four, but I really, really liked it. I liked the world, I liked the characters, I liked the writing and I especially liked the relationships between the characters. In fact, I'm looking forward to seeing how those relationships play out even more than how or if the Ancients are defeated. Please, please, please don't turn the friendship between Blackwood and Henrietta into something romantic. It's perfect just as it is. I cannot wait to get my hands on book two in this series.
