Four Queens. A divided nation. A ruthless pickpocket. A noble messenger. And the murders that unite them.

Keralie Corrington is a talented pickpocket. She steals for the black market in her quadrant. Her nation is divided into four regions, each strictly separated from the other. Four queens, one from each quadrant, rule as one.

When Keralie steals a particularly valuable item from a messenger, she discovers she's intercepted instructions to murder the queens. Hoping to find the culprit, Keralie teams up with Varin Bollt. But with Keralie and Varin each keeping secrets - and the lives of the queens hanging in the balance - everything is at stake. And no one can be trusted in a world full of ruthless thieves, black markets, a golden palace, daring heists, royal intrigue, noble messengers, forbidden love, four queens - each with a secret, and, of course, murder.

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.

    Entre La sélection et Divergent on peut donc trouver Four dead Queens. Dans un univers de Fantasy qui m'a aussi rappelé l'univers steampunk, on suit l'enquête de Keralie pour découvrir qui est l'assassin des reines du pays. Habituellement je n'aime pas trop ces univers mais ici j'ai beaucoup aimé !

    I loved the "crossover" between thriller and fantasy. Keralie is probably one of the best written character of the book, followed by Queens Iris and Marguerite, then Stessa. The two "negative" ones are Varin and the last Queen, that are not developped enough to make us care about them.
