Mini Review: "The Orphan Queen" by Jodi Meadows



The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

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.



REVIEW


*Recieved and sample eARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

In a world full of magic, a strange yet dangerous problem, Wil and the few royal children who survived the destruction of their homeland, plan a rebellion. In the few chapters, we get to see lush descriptions of the world and the situation as also be introduced into many characters, who might be important or even deadly to Wil.

I can't wait for the full book to be published but so far Jodi has created yet another amazing world of beauty and danger.
