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
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.
If you're looking for an inventive world with an INCREDIBLE twist that is set up through every chapter, ...more
Four Dead Queens is a mashup of many of the genres I love. YA/Fantasy, crime/murder mystery, and even a sprinkling of dystopian. I'm not sure if there will be a sequel but I could definitely see it going more dystopian if we got to dive into the quadrants and their inner workings more than the first book.
I felt that this book was very fast-paced and rather clever with how the chapters were ordered ( ...more

I was lucky enough to borrow my friend's advanced copy of 4 Dead Queens and now I am literally indebted to her forever because this book is freaking fantastic, no doubt about it.
I did not read the synopsis prior to diving in. I did not read the blurbs or the hype either. Going in blind is the ony way to adequately enjoy this book because you get to see the story develop in an organic way.
I finished chapter one and t ...more
4 Dead Queens is unlike any story i've ever read. From start to finish you get swept up in this world and you literally cant stop turning the pages. The story is broken up into different parts and told through many point of views. I always appreciate a different prospective, but 6 character POVs is way too much for me. That w ...more
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
Keralie is a strong female protagonist and thief who will keep the reader guessing the entire book.
Varin is an Eonist, technologically advanced and taught to be emotionless. He’s not the typical hero, but that’s what I loved about him.
This fantasy debut has more twists than an ice cream cone and is even more delicious!
I was fortunate to receive an advanced uncorrected galley copy of Four Dead Queens from Penguin Teen at Book Con 2018.
I was blow away by Four Dead Queens!
▪Absolutely GORGEOUS cover!
▪Fantasy + mystery + action adventure + dystopian-esc world
▪Quadara is a fresh, unique, and interesting world.
▪Six point of views can be overwhelming, but Astrid Scholte did it in a way that was beneficial to the story. I think that the story wou ...more
Four dead queens by Astrid Schlote is one of the first no- IS the first great fantastical mystery. In an age of women’s murder club 20 and jack ryan 12 it is a breath of fresh air for a book like this to appear in the mystery section. A well written mystery with twists, turns, and a true heart that makes you feel for and understand every character is something not found normally, and is even less found with a fa ...more
There are five different perspectives: the four queens, and Keralie, an outsider/thief who provided a unique outside perspective to the murd ...more
