Waiting on Wednesday (#97)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases.

Expected publication: April 5th 2016 by 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

YES YES YES YES YES. IT FINALLY HAS A COVER. I wanted to feature it last week, but was too late. BUT THE COVER. THE COVER. The Orphan Queen looked great online, didn't it? But it looked freaking amazing in real life, so can't wait to see this shiny one.
And if you've read and loved The Orphan Queen, you'll know exactly why I'm all (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) over this. *cough*whodoIhavetohurttogetthisbefore2016?*cough*

What're you waiting on?
