When Princess Wilhelmina was a child, the Indigo Kingdom invaded her homeland. Ten years later, Wil and the other noble children who escaped are ready to fight back and reclaim Wil’s throne. To do so, Wil and her best friend, Melanie, infiltrate the Indigo Kingdom palace with hopes of gathering information that will help them succeed.
But Wil has a secret—one that could change everything. Although magic has been illegal for a century, she knows her ability could help her save her kingdom. But magic creates wraith, and the deadly stuff is moving closer and destroying the land. And if the vigilante Black Knife catches her using magic, she may disappear like all the others. . . .
My Review :
I am so underwhelmed right now. This book didn’t give me anything unique. The only reason I even finished it is because I liked Black knife’s character and the whole premise of this book. The story had nothing much to offer. Wilhemmia is the heir to the throne but is living on the streets with orphans. So her and the other Ospreys conspire to get the throne back. Meanwhile there’s a problem of Wraiths going around. And there’s magic that has been banned. Um nothing special. Even the problems that are huge in this book didn’t feel like anything to me. I didn’t connect to it.
What I also didn’t like about this book is that it’s so predictable. I figured out in 10 minutes who Black Knife was and who was the bad guy. And I hate that.
What’s worse, the author dares to end it with a cliffhanger. Like it isn’t bad enough.
Irritated is what I am right now.
You cannot imagine.
You see I have read Incarnate by Jodi Meadows and just like this book it’s got beautiful cover, good premise, likable characters and so much potential. But what we get out of the book, Nothing. The author just NEEDS to work better on the story, the plot. It can be bettet. It has to be better.
