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.
This is not a review.
This a “day after finishing this book and I need to express my emotions” post
The actual review will come closer to release date and lemme tell you its going to be a long one.
This book is going to go down in Gabi history as one of the best books that I have ever read.
Now the emotions began even before I started reading it. When I got the ARC. I was strolling around at the Miami Book Fair and my lovely friend Kaina told me that Harper was giving away ARCs and there was an ARC of the Mirror King that I could admire. So I ran up to the book and asked the guy (best person ever) if I could take a picture and admire it. He pulled it out of a box full of ARCs and gave it to me to take a picture. I then put it down and ran. 1 HOUR LATER! I got the courage to ask the guy if he was giving it away anytime soon…and then…HE FREAKING GAVE IT TO ME! I WAS OVER THE MOON PEOPLE!
And then the actual reading started…
People let me just tell you that I stayed up until 2 in the morning to finish this book, and I didn’t sleep until 3 because of all the thoughts that were going through my head.
Them together is just BOW DOWN! I ship them like no other ship. I WANT THEM TO GET MARRIED AND HAVE FOURTEEN KIDS AND LIVE IN A HOUSE WITH PUPPIES SURROUNDING THEM AND THEIR KIDS WITH RAINBOWS FLYING IN EVERY DIRECTION AND THEM HAVING A PET UNICORN NAMED SKITTLES!
James…I love you. Okay I love you. EVERY SINGLE PERSON LOVES YOU! YOU ARE THE SUN! LOVE YOUUUUUUUUUU!
Meredith..you are such a sweet but…
ALL IN ALL PEOPLE YOU ARE IN FOR A TREAT! I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK AND I WILL POST MY ACTUAL REVIEW WHEN THE RELEASE DATE COMES CLOSER! I APPLAUD YOU JODI!
