Wilhelmina has a hundred identities.
She is a princess. When the Indigo Kingdom conquered her homeland, Wilhelmina and other orphaned children of nobility were taken to Skyvale, the Indigo Kingdom’s capital. Ten years later, they are the Ospreys, experts at stealth and theft. With them, Wilhelmina means to take back her throne.
She is a spy. Wil and her best friend, Melanie, infiltrate Skyvale Palace to study their foes. They assume the identities of nobles from a wraith-fallen kingdom, but enemies fill the palace, and Melanie’s behavior grows suspicious. With Osprey missions becoming increasingly dangerous and their leader more unstable, Wil can’t trust anyone.
She is a threat. Wraith is the toxic by-product of magic, and for a century using magic has been forbidden. Still the wraith pours across the continent, reshaping the land and animals into fresh horrors. Soon it will reach the Indigo Kingdom. Wilhelmina’s magic might be the key to stopping the wraith, but if the vigilante Black Knife discovers Wil’s magic, she will vanish like all the others
Jodi Meadows introduces a vivid new fantasy full of intrigue, romance, dangerous magic, and one girl’s battle to reclaim her place in the world.
I’m gonna be completely honest: I wasn’t falling all over myself for this book the second I heard about it, like a lot of people were. I haven’t read anything by Jodi Meadows yet (and before you jump all over me, yes, her Newsoul series is on my TBR!), so I’m not looking forward this one just because I’m an established fan, like I think a lot of people are. The synopsis does sound great, but on the basis of that alone, I wasn’t omgdying for this one.
You know what made me insanely excited for The Orphan Queen? The fact that Angie (Disquietus Reads) read it recently and is now completely obsessed. She was flailing about the ship from like, 25% in, and ended up giving the book “100,000 gazillion stars” (her words!).
Yeah, now I neeeeeeed it.
What book are YOU anxiously awaiting today?
