Book Talk About Four Dead Queens By Astrid Scholte
Four Dead Queens
¨My body took over as my mind raced. I fled from the fire, from the images burning behind my lids. I wasn't sure where I was running to, but I needed space from Queen Corra´s terrified eyes, in case she pointed a finger at me¨ (Scholte, 313). Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte is a book about a seventeen-year-old girl named Keralie Corrington, a skilled and talented thief, and her quest to stop the murders of the four Queens of Quadara.
Keralie steals a valuable package from Varin, an honest and handsome artist. Varin pleads with Keralie to return the package she stole because he will die if he doesn't deliver it to its destination.

While trying to get the comm case back, Keralie ends up eating the comm case chips, making her see the future. She sees a terrible incident of the 4 queens dead! Each year, the Queens gather to decide who is the most deserving citizen to receive the HYDRA potion, which heals any illness. Both Keralie and Varin want the HYDRA potion.
