You know, I really did like this one. It was... predictable and there was ultimately zero tension because the protagonist never had to really work for... anything, really, but! It was still engaging. The world building was pretty bare bones and I'm not going to lie it didn't actually make a whole lot of logical sense... but....
It was flawed but I liked it, basically. ( )

This is another one of the "I'm pretending to be someone I'm not, at my own peril and the fate of my country/world" tales, but it also has a mix of Zorro thrown in for fun, and it is fun.

There were some dips in the story, and I figured out a few of the foreshadowed events way before they were exposed, but that didn't stop me from enjoying Ms Meadows tale of espionage and swordplay. While it took me a few pages to get sucked in, I did soon enough and flew along with Wil and the rest in her adventure. [My only aggravation with this one is that Ms Meadows left us on a cliffhanger, and that's aggravating --- so I guess I'll be there for the next one, too!] ( )

I quite enjoyed "The Orphan Queen." The plot was engaging, although predictable, and the world building was excellent. Wil was a likeable heroine with her determination, toughness, bravery and intelligence, and I was cheering for her all the way. However, the best character was Black Knife, a masked vigilante, who was rather swoon-worthy. The ending was a cliff-hanger which annoyed me because by the time the sequel comes out I will have forgotten the details of this book and will need to read it again, if I want to continue following the adventures of Wil and Black Knife.

"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"--Jacket.… (more)
