Beetle Queen


Written by M.G. Leonard

Cruel beetle fashionista, Lucretia Cutter, has designs on the world! 

When Darkus, Virginia and Bertolt discover further evidence of her evil, they’re determined to stop her. But the three friends are in trouble. Darkus’ dad has forbidden them to investigate any further – and disgusting crooks Humphrey and Pickering are out of prison. Hope rests on Novak, Lucretia’s daughter and a Hollywood actress, but the beetle diva is always one scuttle ahead …

Beetle Queen is the second book in the Battle of the Beetles trilogy.
