A divided nation. Four Queens. A ruthless pickpocket. A noble messenger. And the murders that unite them.
Seventeen-year-old Keralie Corrington may seem harmless, ...more
I received an advanced reading copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
My Rating: 4.5 Stars
Alright, let me tell you a little something about this book: I almost died to get a copy of it. I know what you’re thinking – I’m prone to dramatics and surely I didn’t almost die. I did though. I’ll paint a word picture for you: there I was, minding my own business at Book Con, when suddenly, a wild mob surrounded m ...more
4.5* Excuse me while I petition for every YA fantasy world to be a queendom instead of a kingdom because Four Dead Queens is the feminist fantasy murder mystery I never knew I needed. Vivid, fast-paced, and suspenseful with the perfect amount of humor and romance, make me the fifth dead queen because I am trash for this book.
Keralie is a thief and quite good at it, possibly the best, but when one of her assignments from Makiel, her mentor and a Kaz Brekker type wh ...more
Why do I have this Red Queen nostalgia going on? It has nothing else in common with that story, of course, but there's a THEIF (!) stealing for the BLACK MARKET 😁
Say no more, you've caught me. You devil!
Her nation is divided into four regions, each strictly separated from the other. Four queens, one from each quadrant, rule as one.
NOW we're talking! That, right there, is promising amazing political intr ...more
Rule thirteen: Only a queen may sit upon the throne. When she takes the throne, she accepts the responsibility to rule the quadrant until her dying day.The good news, I started reading again. The bad news, I didn't enjoy this as much as I wanted too. But I will forever be grateful to this book for pulling me out of such a horrible slump. Four Dead Queens follows renowned thief Keralie Corrington as she’s thrust into a dark conspiracy that leaves all four of Quadra’s queens dead. Ke ...more

In the beginning, we were already thrown into action and not only was I ...more
This book is a masterpiece.
I am usually not a fan of murder mystery novels, but this book is the perfect combination of fantasy, mystery, and action that makes you never want to stop reading. There were many times where I read a passage and had to keep rereading it because I couldn’t believe what I had just read. Your mind will never want to leave Quadara even when you put the book down.
I had a lot of issues with this book though I don't want to go into too much detail because it hasn't been published yet. My biggest gripe was the plot. I'm a plot over characters person, so even if I don't like the characters (I didn't), I can still enjoy a book if the plot is interesting. The pl ...more

Alright everyone, let me tell you about an amazing up-coming 2019 fantasy you’re not going to want to miss. Four Dead Queens is going to blow all of your minds. It’s not necessarily your typical fantasy; this one takes place in a futuristic kind of society where their part of the worl ...more
Under each faction (quadrant) is a queen and each quadrant have their own ideals and ways of living. For instance, Iris ruling Archia is a queen ruling the land of people who are hardworking. They don't care much for technology/advancement. They're basically the Amity in this book. On the o ...more
This novel had some of the greatest plot twists that I have ever read. Maybe it was because I didn't expect them, but one thing after another kept me sputtering in surprise. Out of the four main plot twists (or in my opinion "plot twists") I only guessed one. It was an experience I don't have often.
I will say the main character Keralie was not one of my favorites. She has her great moments, but then often enough, she would say things/ act in a certain way that made me crinkle my nose. She wa ...more
At the end of the day though, I heard a little bird whisper penguin teen would be doing another quick drop of ...more
