I’m thrilled to be participating in the Canadian blog tour for The Orphan Queen, by the lovely Jodi Meadows. I’m VERY excited for her book, and I’m sure that many of you are too. If you aren’t yet familiar with The Orphan Queen, then let me tell you what it’s about, and you can read a guest post from the author!

ORPAbout The Book:

Chapters | Amazon Goodreads |

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.

Guest Post (by Jodi Meadows):

Q: Pick a few characters from The Orphan Queen. Which YA books would you recommend to each?

Wilhelmina: THE GIRL OF FIRE AND THORNS by Rae Carson, because I think she’d learn a lot from Elisa’s thoughtfulness, and identify with the realities of being thrust into power too soon.

Melanie: GRAVE MERCY by Robin LaFevers, because she and Ismae have a lot in common.

Black Knife: DEFIANCE by C..J. Redwine, because he’d admire Rachel’s general awesomeness and Logan’s smarts, and both characters deal with some pretty awful things and I think BK would appreciate seeing characters overcome that.

    I actually have a copy of this one, but have yet to fit it in to read. The cover reminds me a little of Lauren Kate’s Teardrop series, and I think that’s been turning me off a little. I’ll take the plunge soon and pick up up, seeing so many YA readers have absolutely loved it. Great guest post <3

    The Orphan Queen seems like an awesome book, especially because the blurb basically guarantees lots of court intrigue and secrets everywhere. And who can deny a cover like that? What a clever question, Samantha!

    Oh! That’s so cool how Jodi recommended books to her characters! I’ve never seen that done on a blog tour before.

    I’ll have to pick this book up soon. It looks good.
