THE ORPHAN QUEEN
My Thoughts 5 STARS!!!!
But my blog post does not have my thoughts on the book because it went live BEFORE I had a chance to read this book. I was not able to get an ARC of The Orphan Queen so I waited patiently (mostly) for my copy to come in the mail on pub day.
I WAS SO NERVOUS! I had been promoting this book HARD because Jodi Meadows is super hilarious but I hadn’t actually read the book yet. So, I was hoping beyond all hope that I loved this book. I had a few other super anticipated books that didn’t hit the mark for me and I was getting nervous. BUT there was no need to worry.
THE ORPHAN QUEEN IS FANTASTIC! It really was just as good as everyone said.
What I loved:
I’ve decided these three elements together make the perfect book. (Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch is like this too!)
Wilhelmina has been trying to take back her kingdom that had been overthrown by the neighboring Indigo Kingdom. She infiltrates the Indigo Palace as a spy in order to gain information to help get her kingdom back. Along the way she meets Black Knife who is a vigilante in the kingdom who captures those who use magic. Magic has been outlawed and those who use it and are caught are never seen again.
The book is full of wonderful characters, exciting and thrilling moments, and wonderful humor.
Wilhelmina: Wil never gives up. That’s what I love about her character. She’ll do whatever she needs to do to take care of those in her kingdom. She doesn’t play the victim card from the pain of her past but uses her pain to spur her to continue her mission.
Black Knife. Oh Black Knife…..swoon my heart. He’s so amazing. Just read the book so you know what I mean….
READ THIS BOOK, BUY THIS BOOK, READ THIS BOOK AGAIN! The Orphan Queen is by far my favorite 2015 book so far.
Novellas COMING SOON!
