Goodreads Summary:
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.
  
  
I haven't read a Jodi Meadows book yet so this one seems like a great place to start! 

What are you guys waiting on this week?

  5. I love Jodi Meadows, so I am very impatiently awaiting this book. I got a sampler of it from Edelweiss, but I don't know if I want to read it yet because it might make me mad that I can't finish it. Great pick! I'm waiting right along with you!

    1. I'm not sure I'll get to it but watch me add it to my TBR sooner or later lol. I haven't dared to read the sampler in fear that I won't be able to pull back. I'll hate myself later on lol.
