I wish I wish with all my heart, for this book to be released now. I wish for A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi to be released before March 2017.
Title: A Crown of Wishes
Series: The Star-Touched Queen, #2
Author: Roshani Chokshi
Publication Date: March 28th, 2017
Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin
Summary: Gauri, the princess of Bharata, has been taken as a prisoner of war by her kingdom’s enemies. Faced with a future of exile and scorn, Gauri has nothing left to lose. Hope unexpectedly comes in the form of Vikram, the cunning prince of a neighboring land and her sworn enemy kingdom. Unsatisfied with becoming a mere puppet king, Vikram offers Gauri a chance to win back her kingdom in exchange for her battle prowess. Together, they’ll have to set aside their differences and team up to win the Tournament of Wishes—a competition held in a mythical city where the Lord of Wealth promises a wish to the victor.
Reaching the tournament is just the beginning. Once they arrive, danger takes on new shapes: poisonous courtesans and mischievous story birds, a feast of fears and twisted fairy revels.
Every which way they turn new trials will test their wit and strength. But what Gauri and Vikram will soon discover is that there’s nothing more dangerous than what they most desire.
Why I’m Desperately Waiting: I aboslutely inhaled The Star-Touched queen when it was released back in March and as soon as Roshani announced that there was going to be a spin-off novel based on Maya’s younger sister Gauri I immediately jumped for joy. Not only is this book a great Diverse read, it sounds like its going to be quite the epice adventure for Gauri and a true enemies to lovers trope. Sign me Up! Besides, look at that cover, its gorgeous.
