The Star-Touched Queen (The Star-Touched Queen #1) by Roshani Chokshi


Book Summary:

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.

My Review:

Maya has been an outcast by her family, they think she is cursed with death. The only thing that  gives her comfort is telling fairy tales stories to her sister before bedtime. On the night she is force to choose a husband, war breaks out and a stranger whisk her away to another kingdom where no one heard about.

Slowly she discover close doors she not allow to enter. What lies and secrets Amar been feeding her. Amar is curse not allow to say anything to her until the moon is right. Can Maya hold out long enough before she finds out the truth herself? Who is Amar this man of monster that whisk her away? In the end you must discovery the truth yourself when you pick the book. This book filled with love, death and sorrow. Takes you into the world of the unknown and guessing who to trust in the end. So Happy Reading!
