From Goodreads:
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.

"No matter the masks we wear, we always end up together."

The Orphan Queen was one of those books that sat on my shelf for forever and then when I read it I couldn't put it down. I loved every moment of it so naturally I had to dive straight into the sequel. The Mirror King is the final instalment in this amazing series and I loved every single moment of it.

The Mirror King follows Wilhelmina's journey back home and trying to fight the wraith that is destroying the kingdom. Wil must rise up to be the queen that she has always been destined to be, but can she protect her kingdom not only from the wraith but from the other kingdom being led by the one who has her heart.

The Mirror King was such a wonderful ending to such a fantastic series. I loved every moment of it and I didn't know how Jodi was going to wrap everything up in just this one follow up but she did it perfectly. This is the first series I have read of Jodi's and I was completely blown away. I will definitely be reading more of her work as I have loved every single moment of this incredible fantasy series.

The Mirror King had a bit of a slower pace than The Orphan Queen and it took me a little bit longer to finish than the previous book. Once the action got started though it really picked up and I really couldn't put it down. There was so much going on in this book and I really couldn't turn the pages fast enough.

The Orphan Queen series is most definitely one of my favourite series and one I will most definitely re-read time and time again. I loved every moment of it and I am sad that the series is over. I'd have loved to see what happens to the characters next. If you love YA fantasy series that have a hertstopping romance and action-packed storyline this series is definitely for you. I recommend this series to everyone.

"I want every part of you. The nameless girl. The Ospray. The vigilante. The queen. Wilhelmina, you have a hundred identities and I love every one of them."
