Waterstones Says

A spectacular change of pace from the author of the feelgood Me, My Dad and the End of the Rainbow, The King is Dead is a suspenseful queer YA thriller featuring a teenage monarch targeted by one of his inner circle.

Gossip Girl but make it royal - a Black LGBTQ+ royal reimagining full of scandalous secrets, rollercoaster romances and one hell of a mystery.

James has been a prince all his life, and since he was born, he's been thrust into the spotlight as the first Black heir to the throne. But when his father dies unexpectedly, James is crowned king at the tender age of seventeen, and his life irrevocably changes.

When James' boyfriend suddenly goes missing, threatening envelopes appear in the palace, and gossip and scandals that only he knows are leaked to the public. As the anonymous informant continues to expose every last skeleton in the royal closet, James realises even those in his inner circle can't be trusted.

“A twisty mystery that keeps you guessing to the end”

What a little banger this is! I’m a huge fan of Benjamin Dean’s Middle grade fiction, and his YA does not disappoint. If you love Ace of Spades, Gossip Girl, rich people being terrible, you’re going to love this.
