The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

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. @goodreads



I just couldn't get into this book :-(


I give the book two stars because of Kamala, he's the people eating horse. lol

Just because I didn't like this book, does that mean I won't read any more of the author's books? No. I just didn't like this book and it's my fault for taking the time to read it because it didn't sound too much like something I would like but I like to sometimes go out of my zone just to see.

Oh well, I was wrong this time around. I didn't enjoy the characters, I didn't enjoy the setting. Just nothing :-(

I'm glad there are others out there that love the book, I just wish I could have loved it too. That's the way it goes when reading a book. You either love it, hate it, or something in between. = )






  1. I loved this one, but I'm sorry you didn't care for it! If it's not for you, then it's not for you. Hope your next read is much better. :)

    1. Thank you hon :-) I'm so glad you loved it! I hate when I don't like a book, makes me feel bad but hopefully I will get some 5 star books soon. I'm feeling a slump coming on though :-(
