Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I am waiting on
A Crown of Wishes (The Star-Touched Queen 2) by Roshani Chokshi
Publication Date: March 28th 2017
The new novel follows Gauri, the younger sister of the titular Star-Touched Queen, on her harrowing quest for freedom.
When Gauri, the princess of Bharata, is captured by her kingdom’s rivals, she can only find help in Vikram, the cunning prince of an enemy kingdom. Unsatisfied with royal life, Vikram offers Gauri a chance to win back her kingdom in exchange for her battle prowess. They set aside their differences and team up to compete in the Tournament of Wishes, wherein the Lord of Wealth promises a wish to the victor. Every which way they turn new trials will test their wit and strength. But what Gauri and Vikram soon discover is that there’s nothing more dangerous than what they most desire.
So many beautiful covers! I can’t cope with their beauty. No wonder my bank account is suffering so much. 😛
Having just finished The Star-Touched Queen, I was surprised to hear that there was a sequel in works. That is until I read the synopsis and saw that this tale would follow Gauri, Maya’s younger sister who, as we saw in the first book, grows up to be a fierce warrior devoted to the protection Bharata’s people from enemy forces. We also met Vikram in The Star-Touched Queen and I am so excited to get an insight into his life following the event that set him down a certain path that ultimately brings him and Gauri together. Hopefully along the way we get to check in with Maya and Amar because those two are just too precious. To sum up, I can’t wait to get my hands on this book.
What’s your most anticipated book?
