The Mirror King (Orphan Queen #2) by Jodi Meadows
Release Date: April 5, 2016
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Age Group: Young Adult
Summary: 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 Thoughts: Yep, as soon as I finished the last page of The Orphan Queen I had to jump right into the Mirror King! After that ending, OMG! We are back with Will and all her crazy and wild friends and not so friends! I’m so happy it pretty much started where the last one left off. I’m so glad! I needed to know what happened!
And I can’t say much about it without giving away spoilers soooo shhhhhh. I really loved that we are back on the mission on what in the heck is Will going to do and how is she going to save her kingdom. We also see a lot of sadness but there is happiness to make you swoon too.
Man I just zoomed right through this one. I stayed up late just wanting to know what happened. And, I’m glad we got to know Will even better. And her best friend. And her nemesis. So much happened, and so much devastated me. I laughed, I cried, I swooned. I just really enjoyed this one. I want to say more but I’m afraid I’ll give away spoilers so I’m going to stop there.
Overall: I LOVED THIS ONE! I think I liked it better than the first one even. I just love all the characters and I love learning more about them. I love that she can take care of herself but she also wants to truly be taken care of. She wants love, she wants it, she’s just afraid to have it.
I highly recommend this series, and I’m glad we got some kind of resolution. I’m glad how things went for the most part, even though there was a bit of sadness there but I still loved it! Recommend this series!
Cover: Love it. Hadn’t really looked at it up close until recently. Its nice.
