This is probably one of my favourite duologies of 2016.

MY HEART BEATS ONLY FOR BLACK KNIFE. <3

Read this book if you love:

  • a badass heroine who is the lost princess of a kingdom that was taken by the ruler and wants it back. (This means going undercover and infiltrating the palace from the inside, also revenge is in question.)
  • a vigilante called Black Knife that you will fall for because fighting skills + mysterious hot guy with sassy talk = happy bookworm
  • great secondary characters
  • a complex yet unique fantasy world of magic, where they call magic users "flashers" or "radiants" (but magic is forbidden!!)
  • the structure of kings and queens and watching the characters grow into that title aka character development
  • forbidden romance
  • ABSOLUTE CHAOS AND STABBY MURDERS AND FIGHTING SCENES WITH SWORDS AND MAGIC

The Orphan Queen is a action-packed novel that is full of twists and turns that will pull at your heart, and play with your brain. Wil, the heroine will suck you into her journey of fighting for her kingdom and learning love, loss, and friendship along the way. I can't count how many times I've reread this novel. It's truly perfection.
