๏ ๏ ๏  My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏ 

A fantasy stand-alone...not something you see too it?  This is one of the reasons I really liked this.  The other is how compelling listenable I found this, with a mix of dystopian, fantasy and a splash of futuristic-techy thrown in.  I do love those sort of mixes.  Four Dead Queens is not without its flaws, but for the most part, I found them easily discountable.  Maybe, the MC, Keralie is a bit unlikable...but she does grow as a person.  And, also the world-building felt a tad incomplete overall, but still, easily dismissable.  The mystery was well articulated, at least for me it was.  Overall, an enjoyable story and one I recommend.

One of the narrators is the voice of Keralie (Amy Shiels), and the other is the voice of everyone else, including each of the four queens and a couple of others (Elizabeth Knowelden).  They were both pretty good and of course, I liked that the book had two different narrators.  For the story, this worked perfectly.
