Waiting on Wednesday (167): THE MIRROR KING

WOW is hosted by Breaking the Spine

THE MIRROR KING by Jodi Meadows
April 5th, 2016 from Katherine Tegen Books

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.

I thought THE ORPHAN QUEEN was a fun book, so I'm very curious to see how it all ends (and also, I cannot believe this is a duology! I thought for sure it was a trilogy, but at least that means everything will be wrapped up in this book).

What are you waiting on?


  1. I haven't read the first book but I hope this one is good especially since it is the final book. It is rare to find duologies since trilogies seem to be the most popular fantasy storytelling choice in YA fiction.

    1. Agreed! I'm kind of surprised it's not being stretched out into three books.

  2. I am super excited for this one as well. Hope that you get a chance to read and enjoy soon.

  3. Great pick! I really want to check out this series because everyone seems to love it! :)

  4. The fact that I haven't even read the first book yet is really sad. I love Jodi Meadows and I've only heard good things about the first book. Great pick this week!

    My WOW:

  5. Oh yes yes yes. I am dying to read this book too :D Stunning pick Lea. <3 Fingers crossed you'll love it :) I'm happy it is only two books :D Lesser wait, lol. But it will end too soon.. sad face. So excited for it :)
