Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine every Wednesday. It’s about spotlighting some of the releases we are awaiting eagerly.

This week I’m waiting patiently eagerly for…

Title: The Star-Touched Queen
Author: Roshani Chokshi
Series: Standalone
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Mythology
Published By: St. Martin’s Griffin
Coming out on April 26, 2016

Cursed with a horoscope that promises a marriage of Death and Destruction, sixteen-year-old Maya has only earned the scorn and fear of her father’s kingdom. Content to follow more scholarly pursuits, her world is upheaved when her father, the Raja, arranges a wedding of political convenience to quell outside rebellions. But when her wedding takes a fatal turn, Maya becomes the queen of Akaran and wife of Amar. Yet neither roles are what she expected. As Akaran’s queen, she finds her voice and power. As Amar’s wife, she finds friendship and warmth.

But Akaran has its own secrets – thousands of locked doors, gardens of glass, and a tree that bears memories instead of fruit. Beneath Akaran’s magic, Maya begins to suspect her life is in danger. When she ignores Amar’s plea for patience, her discoveries put more than new love at risk – it threatens the balance of all realms, human and Otherworldly.

Now, Maya must confront a secret that spans reincarnated lives and fight her way through the dangerous underbelly of the Otherworld if she wants to protect the people she loves.

The Star-Touched Queen is a lush, beautifully written and vividly imagined fantasy inspired by Indian mythology.

Indian mythology with a gorgeous cover to boot? YES PLEASE.

(I did request an ARC on Netgalley and got so happy I got declined. I know that sounds weird, but now I get to do some catching up without worrying about anything eARC for now… right?)

Let’s talk about it. 

Were you lucky enough to get an early copy of The Star-Touched Queen? What’s your Waiting on Wednesday? Leave your thoughts in the comments! 🙂
