    3.5 StarsAs soon as I finished The Orphan Queen, I dreamed about The Mirror King and I wanted it like yesterday. And, surprisingly, I got it back in September -- thanks to the Edelweiss gods. And then I read. And read. And read. But I was in no way invested into the story. I was probably not in the right mood, but suffice it to say, I dropped it at 43%. Still kept it on my currently reading shelf though. And now that it was finally published, my ...

    straight up, Jodi Meadows if your books are ever optioned for a tv show, please let me help you write the script because I have so many ideas about it~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~WOW! What a conclusion.This duology really improved with the second book. It was less predictable (still predictable, but lesser so), explanations and answers were revealed, the plot moved swiftly and it was thoroughly enjoyable. 4.5/5 stars!! The story picks up right where w...

    (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.) “I couldn’t let you die.” This was a YA fantasy story which picked up right where The Orphan Queen left off.Wil was a strong leader in this and proved how determined she was to be queen. She did have some problems restraining her wraith friend though.The storyline in this did lose me a bit and I felt quite bored. The...

    I adored The Orphan Queen, and have been waiting, somewhat impatiently, until the library copy I had on hold became available. And, the wait was worth it! I devoured the book in less than a day, and even when I was finished, I immediately went back and reread my favourite parts - which was most of the book.Now that everyone knows exactly who Wil is - namely, the lost princess - Wil's life is in a bit of turmoil. Tobiah was shot at the end of The ...

    I really wanted to like this series, especially because I am a HUGE fan of Jodi Meadows' other works, but I just could not connect to the main characters and the overall story.Pros:-Some of the plotting: There were some realllllly awesome plot twists, especially in the middle to end. I did not see them coming at all! -James: He was such a loyal, good friend. I loved how thoughtful and supportive he was throughout the series-Realistic character de...
  • Belinda (TheBookBuddies)
    4.5 stars. This book is amazing. So meticulously plotted. I had been biding my time with this book. Although the ending of OQ had completely killed me, I was scared to pick this up and see how it ended. I feared it wouldn't go the way I wanted. My fears were unfounded. Don't get me wrong, I was surprised by a lot of things. Everything did work out, just not quite in the way I expected. I loved the growth Wil and Tobiah went through. They learned ...

    Heart recking but wonderful conclusion to this amazing duology. I need a moment to grieve my fave characters. Dam you Jodie Meadow...*Bawls* Dam You!!
  • Jessica (Step Into Fiction)
    This book was epic. Hands down, my favorite Jodi Meadows book to date. Everything about this was what I wanted (and more). From the cover (which I can't stop staring at) to each and every word.I will say, out of all the lines in the book, I still feel like the very first line of the book is my favorite. It's powerful. It's dangerous. It's enough to stop your heart with aniticipation and even worry.A full review will come closer to the release dat...
  • Tammie
    Princess Wilhelmina is ready for her crown, but declaring herself queen means war. Caught between what she wants and what is right, Wilhelmina realizes the throne might not even matter. The Mirror King had all the elements I love in a fantasy; soaring highs, a few heartbreaking lows, tough moral decisions, masked vigilantes, some romance, and even a map. While the magic and how it worked wasn't all that detailed, and we've seen this type of story...
  • Jen (The Starry-Eyed Revue)
    An advance copy of this title was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. My thoughts are my own. This review can also be found at The Starry-Eyed Revue.I didn't mean to read this book so early -- okay, okay, I totally did -- but I couldn't help myself! I can't be blamed for how amazing the first book was and how I longed not to have to wait for the sequel. And just a word of warning, but this is going to read like less of a...
  • Sarah (What Sarah Read)
    Well, well, well, Jodi Meadows. I hope you're proud of yourself. I hope it makes your heart sing to know that you have completely broken my feels. I thought you ruined me with the ending of "The Orphan Queen" (read my review), but then you went ahead and just HAD to write "The Mirror King". What the heck, Jodi?!Okay, now that I got that out of my system, I can move on to my review. First things first, if you liked "The Orphan Queen", then you wil...

  • Stacee
    This one took me some time to get into. I'll be honest and say that I'm guessing it's mostly my fault since I didn't reread the first book before starting this one.There are a lot of things that happen in this story and I won't spoil it for anyone. There's some swoons and heartbreak and laughs and it's just a rollercoaster. There were a few things I didn't see coming and while I would have like a little more from the ending, it was pretty satisfy...
  • Maggie ☘ (Wonderland-Reader)
    *1.5/5 stars*Usually I'm not prone to DNF many books, because sometimes my curiosity to see how the story will end is quite masochistic apparently, but boy did I want to DNF this one. I didn't enjoy reading this book, the charactes and unecessary drama made me honestly annoyed, I was bored and skimmed long passages of the story. This isn't the worts fantasy in the world or anything, but I did give book one two stars and that instalment was way mo...

    Review copy provided by the publisher for an honest review.Dammit. I honestly did not expect to dislike this book. I’m actually rather bummed out about it! The Orphan Queen was such an entertaining read. I fell in love with the characters, and I was so intrigued by the plotline. I truly though it had the potential to become something really amazing… but it didn’t hit that mark for me. At all. *pouts*Reasons Why The Mirror King Was a Disappo...

    Omg!! There's so much to talk about this book. The characters, the twist (so many twist), the plot, the romance, the ending (happy and sad is both I think but in a good way), the writing and etc! I love it! Gonna put my review in my blog tomorrow morning itself! 😍
  • Jaime (Two Chicks on Books)
    Omg!!! Jodi!!! I freaking loved this and I'm so sad it's over I want more!!! But this was a brilliant finale. I bawled my eyes out and I grinned so hard my cheeks hurt.
  • Amber
    Jodi Meadows just wrote herself a perfect duology. Plot: When I read The Orphan Queen two years ago, I was in shock. It was a perfectly balanced book with complex characters and I wanted more. Lightning struck twice with Jodi Meadows because The Mirror King was almost better (or better, I'm still undecided) than its predecessor. The Mirror King picked right up after the earth-shattering cliffhanger of The Orphan Queen and I don't think I managed ...
  • Gillian Berry
    3.5 stars, I think?AHH, I'm confused and torn. Because there were a lot of things I loved--the last 150 pages or so had me absolutely hooked--but there were also a few things I don't. THe middle was a slog, but the first 200 pages were fabulous and intense and full of horrid consequences. Truth be told, I think this should have been two books, for reasons I'll go into in my full review. And there are a couple worldbuilding-y things I don't love, ...
  • Nicole
    THIS is how you write a sequel and series finale my friends. When I first read The Orphan Queen, I enjoyed it but something was missing for me, whereas I LOVED every second of this book. And this is a shining example of why there should be fewer Trilogies and more Duologies.Read this one.
  • Kat
    *I received an early copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I loved The Mirror King! It was as great as The Orphan Queen, which is always a good thing for duologies. This book made me WEEP. I wasn't expecting it to make me cry, but oh, did it do that.This book seemed to be about choices--the freedom to make them and how they're part of being human. It was also about making mistakes and taking on responsibility before you're ready, but...
