The Queen Must Die Summary

The Queen Must Die by K. A. S. Quinn

This is the story of Katie Berger-Jones-Burg.

One minute, she's under the bed of her New York apartment... the next she's in Buckingham Palace, at the height of Queen Victoria's reign... A dangerous place to be.

The Royal Family is in mortal peril. In the secret passages of the palace, a plot is afoot. Suspicious figures huddle in the gas-lit streets of London. And Katie is not the only time-traveller in the city...

The Queen Must Die Reviews

A magical, time-travel adventure in the mould of E Nesbit.

* The Times *

Exasperated by life at home and school, Katie discovers the solace of reading and writing her diary while hiding under her bed... and wakes up in Buckingham Palace in 1851. Humorous, historical, time-travelling adventure.

* Guardian *

Completely gripping, this rollercoaster time travel adventure takes Katie, a contemporary New York teenager, back right into the heart of Queen Victoria's reign. Landing unexpectedly in the Buckingham Palace bedroom of Alice, Queen Victoria's younger daughter, Katie is swiftly caught up in a terrifying world of dishonest courtiers plotting unspeakable acts with the help of powerful helpers with extra powers. The details of the life of the Victorian Royals are brilliantly evoked while the adventure spearheaded by three exuberant children rattles along at a cracking pace.
