The Mirror King by Jodi Meadows
"Princess Wilhelmina is ready for her crown, but declaring herself queen means war. Her magic is uncontrollable and now there’s a living boy made of wraith—destructive and deadly, and willing to do anything for her.
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. Princess Wilhelmina’s ability might be just the thing to help reclaim her kingdom—or ruin it forever."- summary from Amazon
I'm such a huge fan of Meadows' books and this conclusion to the Orphan Queen duology is simply fantastic. It's a big book, but ends up being such a quick read. Meadows keeps the action moving at a good pace and some good humor peppered throughout, with quite a clever climax and sweet ending. Wilhelmina is such a smart, kickass character and I loved following along on her journey as she tries to save her world from the fast-encroaching wraith. If you love fantasy, you need to read this duology!
