Wilhelmina has a hundred enemies.
HER FRIENDS HAVE TURNED. After her identity is revealed during the Inundation, Princess Wilhelmina is kept prisoner by the Indigo Kingdom, with the Ospreys lost somewhere in the devastated city. When the Ospreys’ leader emerges at the worst possible moment, leaving Wil’s biggest ally on his deathbed, she must become Black Knife to set things right.
HER MAGIC IS UNCONTROLLABLE. Wil’s power is to animate, not to give true life, but in the wraithland she commanded a cloud of wraith mist to save herself, and later ordered it solid. Now there is a living boy made of wraith—destructive and deadly, and willing to do anything for her.
HER HEART IS TORN. Though she’s ready for her crown, declaring herself queen means war. Caught between what she wants and what is right, Wilhelmina realizes the throne might not even matter. Everyone thought the wraith was years off, but already it’s destroying Indigo Kingdom villages. If she can’t protect both kingdoms, soon there won’t be a land to rule.
In this stunning conclusion to THE ORPHAN QUEEN, Jodi Meadows follows Wilhelmina’s breathtaking and brave journey from orphaned criminal on the streets to magic-wielding queen.
Since I fell head over heels with the Black Knife (here), I couldn't contain myself from squealing and making weird noises every time someone mentions TOQ. I want to know him more. I want to know how everything would end. And most especially, I want to know more about the backend story of the Wraith and their powers. I've been shouting and pleading all over social media for an advance copy -- thanks to HC International and Edelweiss -- I got it months back! Also, my lovely friend Kai from Amaterasu Reads is going to gift me her printed ARC. WOOOOOHOOOOOOO!
I just hope that The Mirror King would not underwhelm me. I have high hopes it wouldn't. Eeeek!
Hafsah from Iceybooks made Quote Candy graphics for ToG. Here's one I've been using ever since:
Also, ToQ is one of The Bookaholic Blurbs' Books of the Year for 2015 so imagine my excitement for TMK! I cannot truly wait for it! As in, I-C-A-N-N-O-T!
