Waiting On Wednesday: The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking The Spine, and it gives you a chance to spotlight a book that you are eagerly waiting to be released.


This week, I picked:


The Orphan Queen
By Jodi Meadows
Publication Date: March 10, 2015


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.


Why I Picked it:

I absolutely adored Fire by Kristin Cashore, and Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, and The Orphan Queen sounds like an intriguing mix of the two. Not to mention the fact that I like reading fairytales where the princess is the one who saves the day instead of playing the damsel in distress.

If you think that The Orphan Queen sounds interesting and would like to read it, click this link and it will take you to this book on the library’s Website where you can put your name on the hold list.
