Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte
Four sectors, all isolated from one another. Four Queens ruling them from afar. One killer on the loose, knocking them out one by one. Each sector believes that they know everything about their ruler, but how far will each Queen go to protect her secrets? Keralie is the best pickpocket in all of the sectors, better known together as the Quadra, but when she steals something going to the palace on a dare, she learns of the plan to kill Quadra’s four Queens. With the help of the upstanding and innocent messenger Varin, Keralie makes it her mission to stop the murder of the Queens before it’s too late. Only, the Queens aren’t what they seem. And the forces that are working against Keralie and Varin are smarter then they think, and not who they would expect. Together, they must travel to the palace, warn someone about the evil plans brewing inside of it, and figure out who the murderer really is.
Wow! What a fantastic mystery book. The suspenseful plot combined with this disturbing dystopian world and questionable characters creates a masterpiece of a book. I really enjoyed Four Dead Queens because of the author’s creativity: the world, plot, characters, and ending are so out there but woven together perfectly. I also really enjoyed the different perspectives to show what the main characters were thinking while all these events were happening! Overall, I really think that lovers of series’ such as Divergent or Red Queen would really enjoy this book as well.
