This is the discussion area for the Buddy Read of

Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte


We will start reading this book in May 24th.

Please feel free to join in and read with us at any time :)


Description:
Seventeen-year-old Keralie Corrington may seem harmless, but in fact, she's one of Quadara's most skilled thieves and a liar. Varin, on the other hand, is an honest, upstanding citizen of Quadara's most enlightened region, Eonia. Varin runs afoul of Keralie when she steals a package from him, putting his life in danger. When Varin attempts to retrieve the package, he and Keralie find themselves entangled in a conspiracy that leaves all four of Quadara's queens dead.

With no other choices and on the run from Keralie's former employer, the two decide to join forces, endeavoring to discover who has killed the queens and save their own lives in the process. When their reluctant partnership blooms into a tenuous romance, they must overcome their own dark secrets in hopes of a future together that seemed impossible just days before. But first they have to stay alive and untangle the secrets behind the nation's four dead queens.

The four lands remind me of the different sanctions from Divergent.

Yes, it does have that Divergent feel.

I like Keralie. The guilt of what happened to her Dad is a very heavy burden and has put her on a dangerous path. I would not want to be in Varin's region. The rule about the queens not loving someone is crazy!

So many rules! And all of the Queens have secrets that would get them dethroned.

It seems like it has to be someone on the inside who knows them...but who?

I have just a bit left. Should be finishing today. I was surprised when Keralie found out the queens weren't dead yet. I was expecting (view spoiler).

Yes, that surprised me, too. I thought she was going to be, as well.

I finished. I am glad Keralie gets a second chance. I like her and Varin together.

I was happy about Keralie's second chance. Did you see Keralie as the asassassin coming? How about the Queen? Yes, I like them together, too.

I didn't! I figured she was being set up! The Queen was way more understanding to Keralie's situation than I would have been, lol.

I was shocked by those twists. Don't think I would be that understanding, either.
