    Four Dead Queens was being given away when I attended the Penguin talk at Comic-Con back in July 2018. Before this, I knew nothing about it, but I was immediately drawn in by the promise of a murder mystery in a fantasy setting. I'm a sucker for murder mysteries in general, and adding ...

    Keralie is a skilled thief. Varin is a on a mission to deliver a package. When Keralie steals the package, both Keralie and Varin are caught up in a conspiracy that results in four dead queens. A standalone young adult fantasy novel. I enjoy YA fantasy, and am always happy to see st...

    some of the best characters are those who blend the line between right and wrong, those whose ambiguous actions lead to even more conflicting intentions, and i am loving how these morally grey characters are finally getting the attention they deserve. keralie is a shining example of th...

    i won't be reviewing this one in full, but I feel uncomfortable if i don't speak frankly about two harmful things: (1) this book buries its queers unapologetically (2) it has a society built on eugenics and this isn't called out or indicated to be a despicable crime (in fact it's w...

    I am very pleasantly surprised here! For a debut? It is pretty damn good! And also the fabulous buddy-read with Mary helped me to enjoy this book even more! - This was me while reading all the time! Since we were reading only 5 or 6 chapters per day (okay except for the last ...

    Very curious about this one! Cannot wait for it. However, at first glance, I thought it was a book by Kendare Blake from the Three Dark Crowns series. Because of the cover and the title. Hopefully, that will be the only resemblance. But I will surely read this one. ...

    When I first picked up this book, the title and summary caught my eye. I don't usually read murder mysteries, but the plot sounded interesting. Unfortunately, the book didn't live up to my expectations. I had a lot of issues with this book though I don't want to go into too much det...

    And this, ladies and gentleman, is what every fantasy should be like. I can't remember the last time I read such a quality standalone fantasy novel - EVERYTHING was on point. First of all, the concept of four murders - four dead queens is so interesting. Like how does one kill the ...

    2.5 stars. Four Dead Queens is a decent fantasy debut. With a premise of four queens being killed and two people caught in the midst of a conspiracy, it sounds very promising. But in the end, I wasn't impressed. It started out good but the more I read, the more flaws I started t...

    I've got to say? for the first 25% of this book, I was really just not feeling it. Everything felt dull to me, it read like one of those classic fantasies, and something just didn't *click* for me the way that I wanted it to. I found Keralie frustrating, the plot unordinary, and the ...

    Buddy read with You Are Never too Old to Young Adult. This was sort of an impromptu read. This is a debut novel, and perhaps one of the best debuts I have ever read. It's edited well, and the plotting and pacing is great, in my view. It's about four different kingdoms which make ...
