    In a postapocalyptic world, Tempest needs to get answers about her parents' death from her inconveniently dead sister, and she's finally raised the money it will take to resurrect Elysea for the strictly controlled 24-hour time period. Lor, caught in his own tangle of grief and guilt, is the Warden who will usher Elysea back to life and oversee her return to death. When the process is interrupted, the sisters escape to try to find their parents, who may still be alive. If Lor can't catch them in 24 hours, not only will Elysea die, but he will, too. Situating the action within a single day establishes certain tension that Scholte augments with the harsh realities of a world dominated by water, well-placed indicators that there is more to Lor's story, and plenty of opportunities for readers to ponder when—if ever—it's OK to play god. Tempest and Lor share narration duties, and each chapter prominently displays the date and time, as well as the amount of time remaining for Lor to make things right. Grades 8-12.

Author Notes

Raised on a diet of Spielberg, Lucas and Disney, Astrid Scholte knew she wanted to be surrounded by all things fantastical from a young age. She's spent the last ten years working in film, animation and television as both an artist and manager. Career highlights include working on James Cameron's Avatar, Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin and George Miller's Happy Feet Two. She's a visual writer and aims to capture the vivid stories that play like movies in her head. When she's not writing, she's painting her favorite fictional characters and obliging her furry overlords, Lilo and Mickey. Four Dead Queens is her debut novel.
