Wilhelmina is the teenage queen of a kingdom that doesn't exist anymore — Aecor was conquered when she was a child by a king who had her parents executed and her magic outlawed. Now Wil is a member of the Ospreys, a rebel group of highborn teens from Aecor who are planning to reclaim their kingdom. Working against them— or so they believe— is Black Knife, a vigilante who takes down criminals and magic-users... until he meets a nameless girl who makes him question whether what he does is right. A fast-paced fantasy with an almost comic-book superhero element, The Orphan Queen is a compelling start to a new series by popular YA sci-fi author Jodi Meadows. ~ Reviewed by Paige Mushaw

An exquisite short story about how a girl and her ice dragon become involved in a terrible war. Perfect for middle and young adult readers interested in fantasy, violent(ish) stories, or dark fairy tales.
