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.
My Review: I can't even tell you how fast I got through this book!
It starts off fast paced. Wil is holding the crown prince. Hes been seriously hurt and no idea if he'll make it. So they move quick. Remove the bolt, get him to his room and seen. Get the wraith boy under control and figure out a plan. Once everyone is back inside, things just keep on moving. Will see's just how bad Tobiah is hurt. So she sneaks out.
After a while she comes back with her friends. They are given room in the palace, Wil's friend uses his own magic on Tobiah. It ends up working, and once the prince is up, oh man do things just keep moving! They all talk, come up with a plan. They will sign an agreement to work together. Take care of the wraith. Tobiah will be king. Wil will use her magic much more than she ever has. Together they will both become strong.
Wil will become the Queen she's meant to be. And I love love loved her even more in this book. She is handling a lot, a lot of bad is thrown at her, new challenges. It was just amazing on how she handles it. Then with Tobiah, he really changed in a good way. He became more certain of things. A better leader, tougher, and really grew in this book.
Then by the end I was just full of feels. Jodi is one of my favorite authors. She knows how to hook you from start to end. Then she leaves you perfectly lying on the floor, full of feels and wondering when her next book will be out!
