Jodi Meadows concludes the Orphan Queen duologoy with "The Mirror King"

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.

Wow. And can I say how sad I am that this is just a two book series!! I could have used a couple more!

Anyways, So at the end of Orphan Queen, the King has been killed by Patrick, and he also took a shot at Prince Tobiah, who now lays almost dead from his injury. Bring in the Ospreys! Connor uses his magic to heal Tobiah so he is no longer on the brink of death, but is still injured. He must hold his fathers memorial and have the coronation before his uncle challenges him for the throne. 
Several very odd things happen in this book. First. Wraithboy. He is absolutely devoted to Wil, but has no sense of right or wrong. He does several things that make Wil look back and there's not alot she can do about it. James is James but hes not James. Lots of weird things. Anways.

But Wil returns home and faces Patrick. Then, wraith starts creeping across the Indigo Kingdom, and it feels like nowhere is safe. 

I have really enjoyed this little series. A nice, easy read without much thought, with a cool world and interesting plot line.
