Seventeen-year-old Keralie Corrington may seem harmless, but shes, in fact, one of Quadaras most skilled thieves and a liar. Varin, on the other hand, is an honest, upstanding citizen of Quadaras most enlightened region, Eonia. He 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 both find themselves entangled in a conspiracy that leaves all four of Quadaras queens dead. With no other choices and on the run from Keralies 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 nations four dead queens. An enthralling fast-paced murder mystery where competing agendas collide with deadly consequences, Four Dead Queens heralds the arrival of an exciting new YA talent.

I am extremely excited about the Spooktober Bingo challenge going on next month in the Literally Bookish Facebook group. I usually don‘t like prompt specific challenges because I just want to read what I want to read and I don‘t want to feel tied down to specific things. But their creepy read prompts for next month are absolutely perfect for my reading ⬇️

abookishbutterfly preferences! I‘ve written down possibilities for each prompt based on books that I have on hand or have already preordered. The books pictured are just some of my possibilities. I feel really good about this one. I don‘t read quickly enough to anticipate filling the entire board but I think I stand a good chance of filling two to three Bingo lines.

Will you be participating in any spooky challenges next month?

A Clue- esque whodunnit with shifting POV‘s and a slew of unreliable narrators. It started out great but a variety of plot holes & conveniences wore on me by the end. Points for 🏳️‍🌈 references slipped in.

Regardless, #BookSpin complete! 💪🏻

TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! 1y

This one was a surprise. At first, Kera seemed like a little spoiled brat to me, until I realized that this was needed for the story and character development. I was impressed #1

Then the story itself turned out to be deeper and more complex than expected. Surprise #2.
And all those twists und turns! Wow! Surprise #3.

I'm deeply impressed, really.

Loved loved loved! Did I mention I loved this book? This book was so fast paced and I could NOT put it down!! Yes I read it all in one sitting. The main character is a tad whiney for me, but the mystery and the love story, TO DIE FOR! It had me guessing right up until it was solved. I love books that can surprise me and this one definently did! I loved the story, the mystery, love story, and just how beautiful this book was. Go read it!!

Bookish Song Nr. 11: Fighter

Deezer recently realized that I'm getting older and has started to come up with songs from my youth. Such as “Fighter“ by Christina Aguilera. And while it played I thought of “Four Dead Queens“ and Keras feelings towards Mackiel. How he “made“ her, but she still found her own way and how her past has made her stronger.

There were aspects of this story I really liked; it‘s well thought out world. That said, for me, the world building became a negative: too much detail slowed the action. I got bored about 30% in and really had to push myself to finish. It picked up again, and I really liked Kera and Varin, but I felt some characters were much more well rounded than others, and not all motives were explained well. Just an ok read for me.

First of all: I‘m on a roll on finishing books this week and writing reviews! Okay, now onto the review!
Rating: 5/5 Stars
I really wished I read this when I got it on my Kindle earlier this year! It had excellent world building, great character development, and I loved the elements of fantasy mixed with mystery. Such a good book with lots of twists and turns.

The world-building in this book is fantastic. There are some unforeseen twists (I didn‘t guess them ahead of time - perfect!) and a satisfying ending. I will be looking for more from this author!

This one was a little hard to get into, with there being a lot of information and lore thrown at you in the beginning, but once I finally got into the world, it was a lot of fun. A fantasy murder mystery that kept me guessing all the way through. I was a little worried I would be able to predict everything that was going to happen, but was pleasantly surprised when all my theories were proven wrong. Overall, 10/10, would recommend.

Pretty good story. The relationships seems to happen a bit too quickly, but over all a decent story with an interesting world that got wrapped up nicely at the end. Fairly easy and quick read as well.

I liked this book but wish it focused on the fantasy aspects more (ie world building and political intrigue) and less on the murder mystery plot. Also the romance felt very insta lovey and I wasn‘t a fan of that. I guess you could say I wasn‘t a fan of the plots focused on Keralie which is a shame since she is the main character.

My last completed #read of August. I loved it! I'm usually pretty good at predicting the killer in mysteries, but I didn't guess this one. The book was filled with a few good twists. I enjoyed the main character, Kera's, character development. The imagery and descriptions were so vivid. It would make a great movie.

I liked it. I didn‘t see all the twists coming but that‘s ok. I thought it was interesting getting all the perspectives of the queens and solving who the killer was. Wasn‘t who I thought it would be. Spoiler in comments

BookishGirl06 Really didn‘t expect the killer to be Keralie. 2y

I almost didn't read this and that would have been a shame. It just kept getting better. The story is very easy to get lost in, just keep reading and you'll feel like you're there. 5 stars are rare from me. It started as a 3, quickly to 4 then 5. Every aspect was intact from writing to flow, world building to character development. Highly recommend!

Quite enjoyed this stand alone tale. It had elements of Six of Crows to it and some other wonderful YA books I have liked. The world was quite interesting although I wanted more depth to the history. Plus I would have loved to have explored the two other quadrants. Really great concept!
