    • Abstract:
      Summary: 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.

Booklist Reviews 2019 February #1

Debut author Scholte manipulates multiple points of view and flashbacks to create an action-packed romance set in an alternative future. Seventeen-year-old Keralie is a master thief, working for her childhood pal and mastermind Mackiel—until she scores a particularly attractive piece of technology known as comm chips and he betrays her. Desperate to save herself, Keralie swallows the chips and learns that the kingdom's four queens have been brutally murdered, and that she and handsome young Varin (from whom she stole the chips) are in serious danger. The four quadrants of Quadara, each ruled by a queen through matrilineal succession, are each fascinating and wholly different worlds (one focusing on art, another on technology), and Scholte has constructed intriguing back stories for not only these worlds but also the queens that ruled them. Issues of class, race, privilege, and family fealty are prominent, along with a healthy dose of conventionally formulaic romance. Clearly labeled chapters help the reader navigate intricate plotting.
