Skyvale faces problems worse than anyone realizes. Secrets are building. Enemies are everywhere. Told from the perspective of Tobiah, the crown prince with a dangerous secret, and set two years before the heart-racing action of The Orphan Queen, this 100-page digital novella brings to life one of Jodi Meadows's most beloved characters.

Tobiah Pierce is ready to break free of his princely role—he's sick of the bodyguards that always trail him and is uncertain about the new girl at court, Meredith Corcoran, who his parents keep pushing toward him. When Tobiah's beloved tutor seems to be embroiled in a dangerous situation deep within the city, Tobiah jumps on the opportunity to throw off the royal restrictions and chase after him. But what happens in the narrow alleys and shadowy corners proves he doesn't know anything about the people he cares about—or the city he must one day rule.

The Glowing Knight is the second of four prequel novellas that offer existing fans a deeper insight into a favorite character and the complex city of Skyvale, while new readers will find a stunning introduction to this rich world and the heart-pounding fantasy of the Orphan Queen series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great read on Skyvale! The Glowing Knight by Jodi Meadows follows where it left off in The Hidden Prince and I must say, I loved this one even more! I was right into it from the beginning and got nostalgic feelings for The Orphan Queen. There’s action, mystery and of course those unexpected plot twists Meadows is known for (at least when it comes to TOQ). It’s here Tobiah goes on his first ‘dangerous mission’ trying to catch a dangerous criminal who’s been using magic to threaten and hurt people. Tobiah’s professor is the most recent victim, making the need for justice even more important. Tobiah is 99.9% sure who’s responsible and feels annoyance at his father’s lack of trust in him. Even though this is his first adventure, it was interesting to see him noting mistakes and what to do-not to do on the next mission – already planning ahead when he hasn’t even caught his first bad guy! Tobiah is determined to solve the problems threatening Skyvale one by one. Furthermore, we get on an even more personal level with Tobiah than in The Hidden Prince. Like THP, the reader is again feeling that frustration and betrayal but also humour and fear – terrifying fear at James not becoming his bodyguard and losing whatever freedom Tobiah might have afforded with him. Lastly, I loved that the author added in a legend originating with Skyvale and the Indigo Kingdom. It made that insider’s look on the city even more amazing since this experience is slightly different from how we experience Skyvale in TOQ. I recommend this to anyone wanting a deeper insight on the Indigo Kingdom. You won’t regret picking it up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So exciting! Tobiah is the best. Reading this short story was so much fun. I adore being inside the head of Tobiah. I'm not going to say too much about this one, just that it is amazing. And I loved the closer look on Tobiah and who he is as a person. This story shares how Tobiah first started going outside the castle walls. It is so much fun. Well, okay, it isn't going all that well for him, lol, but I loved reading about it. And I adore how close he and James are. They are amazing friends. And I like them both so much. Sigh. The Glowing Knight is a gorgeous short story. It is fun and exciting and a bit heartbreaking too. I loved reading every moment :) I won't say more about what this story is about, just know that it is all kinds of interesting and I enjoyed every moment. Five stars for this precious story. I just loved getting to read more about Tobiah :D He is my very favorite. And oh. There are two more chapters of The Mirror King at the end of this one, and they are perfection. Ahh. So much love. I just adored this short story so much. So glad that I read it. I cannot wait to read the other ones :D And to finally read The Mirror King. <3 Waiting for that one will be torture. Yet so worth it, I'm sure. I have such high hopes :D I am really wishing for happy ending for Wil and Tobiah together. <3 I also wish to mention that I adore Jodi. She's the very best. So kind and awesome and her writing is stunning. Anyway. You all need to read this one :) Because it is all kinds of perfect and I adored it. The Glowing Knight has more of Tobiah, whom is my very favorite. And it is such a great story. I found the ending to be a little bit heartbreaking, yet so amazing. And the The Mirror King chapters. Sigh. I couldn't have loved that sneak peek any more. Wil is so amazing and I just. I need more of it all. Much more :)
