Seventeen-year-old Keralie Corrington may seem harmless, but she's, in fact, one of Quadara's most skilled thieves and a liar. Varin, on the other hand, is an honest, upstanding citizen of Quadara's 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 Quadara's queens dead.
With no other choices and on the run from Keralie's 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 nation's 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 traded for a stunning ARC of this book, and I really must read it as soon as possible. Because, my gosh, it sounds awesome. I must be honest and say that I don't think I read the summary until just now? What even. I was expecting this book to be about four different people, hahaha. And it seems like it might just be one point of view? Max two? Gosh, I hope so :D I just got way more excited about this book, lol. And so I will hopefully be reading it very shortly. So excited about it now. And excited about the romance too.
What are you waiting for on this skilled Wednesday?
