Goodreads Book Description:
Fate and fortune. Power and passion. What does it take to be the queen of a kingdom when you’re only seventeen?

Maya is cursed. With a horoscope that promises a marriage of death and destruction, she has earned only the scorn and fear of her father’s kingdom. Content to follow more scholarly pursuits, her whole world is torn apart when her father, the Raja, arranges a wedding of political convenience to quell outside rebellions. Soon Maya becomes the queen of Akaran and wife of Amar. Neither roles are what she expected: As Akaran’s queen, she finds her voice and power. As Amar’s wife, she finds something else entirely: Compassion. Protection. Desire…

But Akaran has its own secrets—thousands of locked doors, gardens of glass, and a tree that bears memories instead of fruit. Soon, Maya suspects her life is in danger. Yet who, besides her husband, can she trust? With the fate of the human and Otherworldly realms hanging in the balance, Maya must unravel an ancient mystery that spans reincarnated lives to save those she loves the most…including herself.

RELEASE DATE: December 2016

My Review:
A stunning book filled with enchantment, mystery and love. The Star-Touched Queen leaves readers constantly curious and craving more!

I'm honoured to have received The Star-Touched Queen as an arc from Harlequinn Teen, this book has been one of my most anticipated reads of 2016 and I couldn't have been happier with it!

Thrown into a world of mystery and wonder, readers follow the story of Mara, a young, strong, independent woman who isn't leading the life she wished for. She lives in a time when rules are constantly followed and wars between kingdoms can break out at any given moment. For Mara however, not all rules were made to be followed; when Mara is about to end her life for the sake of her kingdom, she is stopped by a mysterious man who only shows the bottom of his face - she is immediately intrigued by him and joins him on an adventure of love, betrayal & magic.

At first I thought this book was very mysterious and contained quite an amount of insta-love. But as I progressed through the book, the plot began to thicken, the characters developed beautifully and Mara truly took me on a journey I'd never expect!

I absolutely adore Roshani Chokshi's writing in The Star-Touched Queen! Her writing is vibrant, lyrical, beautiful and deeply connecting with her readers. Following Mara's journey in this book, I was constantly shocked at the plot twists & new information I gained.

I certainly will be going to re-read this wonderful book in the future!
