My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

 Adventure, intrigue, and romance combine in a new fantasy duology from Incarnate series author Jodi Meadows.

When Princess Wilhelmina was a child, the Indigo Kingdom invaded her homeland. Ten years later, Wil and the other noble children who escaped are ready to fight back and reclaim Wil's throne. To do so, Wil and her best friend, Melanie, infiltrate the Indigo Kingdom palace with hopes of gathering information that will help them succeed.

But Wil has a secret—one that could change everything. Although magic has been illegal for a century, she knows her ability could help her save her kingdom. But magic creates wraith, and the deadly stuff is moving closer and destroying the land. And if the vigilante Black Knife catches her using magic, she may disappear like all the others. . . .

The Orphan Queen delivers epic fantasy, perfect for fans of Graceling by Kristin Cashore, Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson, and Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo.

 UPDATE 4/1/2015

After reading the whole book it became official; Jodi knows how to tear apart your heart over her characters and create amazing cliffhangers! Both for the reason I loved her previous series and gor the new cover this book deserves 5 stars!

*Recieved and 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.
