Waiting on Wednesday: The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine

I always called myself a 'dystopian reader' but lately I've been really lucky with high fantasy. And though, I haven't read anything by this author, this book sounds kick-ass! 
Can't wait to read it!



 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.



  1. I read the first book in her other series - not sure why I didn't finish all 3 of them, because I loved that first one and I love-love-love the covers ;))

    The author didn't let the full galley for this book to be available, so I only read a few chapters, but I loved them and now I'll have to wait until it comes out *sigh*

  2. I can't wait to read this one! I have the sampler from Edelweiss, but samplers just aren't enough ;D I hope you enjoy it when you read it!!
