The Orphan Queen

By Jodi Meadows

Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books (An imprint of HarperCollinsPublishers)   

Pages: 391

Rated: 3.75 stars

The Orphan Queen is a book that I really enjoyed.

The world that Jodi has created was very imaginative and drew me in. I found Wilhelmina quite a ‘rough diamond’, she is anything but perfect, with just her Ospreys for support. You can see how she improves and allows others like Black Knife to help her, after the One-Night-War when her life changed.

Having to go into enemy territory without giving her real identity felt tense. There are secrets going on within the group that she sees as her family – she had thought she could fully rely on them but she starts to find herself relying on the enemy instead.

Being such an easy read made the plot more intense for me although I can’t quite explain why. I found the land strange and intriguing really enhancing the book.

There are plenty of secrets still to be spilled in the last book of the duology The Mirror King, and you really do wonder how things are going to pan out with a cliff-hanger at the end of the first book making you want to know what is going to happen next.
