Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.
This is only my fifth Waiting on Wednesday. There are so many books I’m excited about, so I’ll definitely keep doing this. With that said, here’s my pick that I can’t wait for.
Title: The Mirror King
Author: Jodi Meadows
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Publication date: April 5, 2016
Summary (via Goodreads): 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.
Why I Chose This Book:
I loved The Orphan Queen. It was my first book by Jodi Meadows, and it hooked me from the beginning. So obviously I CANNOT wait for the next book! I don’t know how I’m going to wait until April to find out what happens with Black Knife, Wilhelmina, and the wraith terrorizing them.
