Adventure, intrigue, and romance combine in a new fantasy duology from Incarnate series author Jodi Meadows.
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. . . .
1. What did you think of the story?
Kristen: Omg! I loved it. It’s like Game of a Thrones meets The Selection. I couldn’t put it down. Whenever I had free time I was reading (Which is hard during the work week. I think I snuck in a couple of reads in at work. Shhh… don’t tell!)
Tawney: I totally agree Kristen! The story is a very unique fantasy. Magic is illegal and the wraith wrecks havoc among the kingdoms. I was immersed in this world so much I couldn’t put the book down.
3. How did you like the wraith?
Kristen: The wraith was a twist! I didn’t see the transformation coming. I’m excited to see how the character will grow and interact with Wil in the sequel. I’m trying not to give too much away in these questions, which is hard! Haha
Tawney: It was such a unique concept! Basically the wraith is a toxic by product of magic. I didn’t expect the ending and the turn of events.
4. The book ended in a cliffhanger, how do you like that?
