The Mirror King Blog Tour: Interview with Jodi Meadows + Giveaway

I'm so happy to take part in this blog tour :D Yesss. I love Jodi so much. She's amazing. And her books are so good. I loved The Orphan Queen a whole bunch, and the sequel, The Mirror King, was even better. And the four enovellas were stunning too. Lots of love for this world. And characters. Eee. These books are just so stunning. You must all get this book when it comes out on April 5th. Just a few days left :D You are all going to love this one, promise. I cannot wait to get my copies. I also adored her newest book, out this summer, My Lady Jane. <3 So good. Thank you so much Alexa for letting me take part in this stunning blog tour :D And thank you so much Jodi for answering all my questions. <3 You are the bestest. There is also an international giveaway at the end of the post that you should enter. Good luck.

Interview with Jodi Meadows.

1.  If you could make any of your characters come to life, which one would you choose? 

Only one?? From just The Orphan Queen, right? Not from all my books? Wow, this is hard. Um. Let's go with Wil.  

2. Which character was the most fun and the most difficult for you to write about? 

Oh definitely Wilhelmina. That's why she's the main character. She's complex. She has a lot to lose -- but she also has a lot to gain!  

3. If you could choose, would you have wanted to have Wilhelmina’s powers? 

Ummm. With great power comes great responsibility. All my friends think I'm the responsible one. So I will either be responsible enough to know that I don't want that kind of power, or responsible enough to use that power for good.  

You are asking some hard-hitting questions.  

4. Do you regret killing off some of the characters in The Mirror King? No spoilers, but one death still haunts me :) 

Hahahahaha. No. I don't regret it. I'm sad that it had to happen, but . . . it had to happen.  

5. Which character did you like the least while writing The Mirror King?  

I don't know that I really disliked any of them. Even the antagonists had their reasons for why they did things, and while I don't like their methods, I still like them in some ways.  

6. Who is your favorite hero and heroine of all time? Bookish or not. 

Of. All. Time.??? *shakes fist in the air* Carina!! I don't know. I just. 

I don't know. I love all my favorites equally. I can't choose.

7. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why? 

I'd have a house that could pop in and out of existence in whatever place I wanted to be in at the time.

8. Could you share anything about what you are writing next? :) 

Sure! There are dragons. And bad things that happen. And secret languages! That's really all I can say for now. The first book is still very far away! 

Wilhelmina has a hundred enemies.

HER FRIENDS HAVE TURNED. After her identity is revealed during the Inundation, Princess Wilhelmina is kept prisoner by the Indigo Kingdom, with the Ospreys lost somewhere in the devastated city. When the Ospreys’ leader emerges at the worst possible moment, leaving Wil’s biggest ally on his deathbed, she must become Black Knife to set things right.

HER MAGIC IS UNCONTROLLABLE. Wil’s power is to animate, not to give true life, but in the wraithland she commanded a cloud of wraith mist to save herself, and later ordered it solid. Now there is a living boy made of wraith—destructive and deadly, and willing to do anything for her.

HER HEART IS TORN. Though she’s ready for her crown, declaring herself queen means war. Caught between what she wants and what is right, Wilhelmina realizes the throne might not even matter. Everyone thought the wraith was years off, but already it’s destroying Indigo Kingdom villages. If she can’t protect both kingdoms, soon there won’t be a land to rule.

In this stunning conclusion to THE ORPHAN QUEEN, Jodi Meadows follows Wilhelmina’s breathtaking and brave journey from orphaned criminal on the streets to magic-wielding queen.

  1. Oh I can tell I'm certainly missing out on a lot having not picked this series up yet, she sounds like she brings so much to her stories, thanks for sharing a great interview with us Carina! :)

  2. Fantastic interview! And oh dear, I'm so excited for Jodi's next series because DRAGONS!!

    While we wait for that, I'll be re-reading Orphan Queen & Mirror King once my finished copy of TMK arrives!

  3. I'm glad you're here to remind me that this comes out so soon! Gotta get to reading! I can't wait to see how it ends!

    Wonderful interview, Carina!!

  4. Oooh, a house you could pop into existence anywhere in the world?! I like that idea! Great post, ladies! :)

  5. Great interview! My friend read TOQ back in July, and has been book-pushing it on me since then. But of course, just when I was about to start reading it, I had to hear about a certain cliffhanger ending, so I did the sensible thing and put the book down to spare my tears with the promise of picking it up again after TMK is published. So now I'm just waiting for TMK to start reading the duology. Great post!

  6. Because I've heard so many good things about it from you and Jodi's other books are amazing!

  7. I absolutely can't wait for Meadow's next book with dragons! :D I already really enjoyed her Incarnate trilogy, and TMK WAS JUST SO GOOD. ALL MY FEELS AND EVERYTHINGGGG. :'D I would want Chrysalis to be alive, actually. He and that other character, well, they were the real stars of the book for me. :)
