The Star Touched ueenRaja arranges a wedding of political convenience to uell outside rebellions Soon Maya becomes the ueen of Akaran and wife of Amar Neither roles are what she expected As Akaran’s ueen she finds her voice and power As Amar’s wife she finds something else entirely Compassion Protection DesireBut Akaran has its own secrets thousands of locked doors gardens of All fantasy readers are you ready to meet your favourite 2016 publicationThat’s right it’s that goodThe first thing you’ll notice when you start reading this gem is the elegant writing If it doesn’t sweep you off your feet color me dumbstruck I can’t imagine someone being immune to it An angel must have written this story ‘‘My kingdom needs a ueen’’ he said ‘‘It needs someone with fury in her heart and shadows in her smile It needs someone restless and clever It needs you’’ As I was reading the story a thought kept popping up my mind how the hell did Maya survive this long even with those guards Everyone simultaneously hates and fears her Even her own father wants her dead In a time when horoscopes act as gods and determine if a person is trustworthy or not and the kind of future that awaits them your destiny better be brightMaya has the darkest horoscope of them allThe Raja of Bharata her father decides to marry her off in order to gain an ally for when the upcoming war bursts to life So she gives up the sliver of freedom she still had and marries But not to anyone—to the King of the Otherworld She uickly learns though that there is to Amar than charming promisesI admired her strength and how feministic her values are the most She wants from life than to just be wife; she yearns for education freedom and she doesn’t blindly trust men And let’s not forget the fact that she plays the role of the saviour Amar too is very intent on euality and treating Maya with all the respect she deserves ‘‘My star touched ueen’’ he said softly as if he was remembering something long ago ‘‘I would break the world to give you what you want’’ I truly wish this was a series When I turned the last page I just couldn’t bring myself to say goodbye to the characters I grew in only a few days so attached to and therefore went back to reading my favourite passages to pluck beautiful uotes here and there However the author lovely concludes the story You won’t be disappointed in that departmentI’m impressed at how automatically I liked the love interest I didn’t even review his ualities or looked for flaws—it just happened and uickly too Maybe you’ll find him a little too ‘‘intense’’ but if the romance in Cruel Beauty worked out for you I don’t see why you wouldn’t adore the relationship between Maya and Amar You just have to know that Amar is a sweet talker but he’s always genuine—or is heThe world building is a bit less developed than I thought it would be when I heard of the whole never seen before concept of horoscopes mirroring a person’s fate Why Very few settings and a lack of meaningful interactions with diverse secondary characters Except I took in consideration that this is a standalone and that it’s hard to well include both of those elements in a one book story On the plus side you’ll find that the original plot three dimensional characters and gripping dialogs shine ‘‘You know nothing about me’’ ‘‘I know your soul Everything else is an ornament’’ Blog | Youtube | Twitter | Instagram | Google
