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.
~ Today's Character ~Black Knife focuses his energy on flashers--magic users. He hunts them down and turns them in to the Indigo Order. What happens after? Who knows.
I am a sucker for a vigilante! Trust me when I tell you, if you ever find yourself in a dark alley, Black Knife is the one you want on your side. Okay, so even if you aren't in a dark alley, but maybe you're in a bookstore, or a bakery or even sitting in church, you still want him on your side.
But seriously, I'm not a huge fan of fantasy and I thoroughly enjoyed The Orphan Queen!
