Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we have the opportunity to let others know about books that we are eagerly waiting for.

Published:Β  St. Martin’s Griffin

Release date: May 3rd, 2015

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.

Why I want to read it: An arranged marriage? Indian mythology? Magic? Reincarnation? A beautiful cover? Β What else can you ask for?

  1. Indian mythology? Why, I’M from India! Wow, this sounds like an absolutely unique twist on an Aladdin type fantasy, and YES that cover makes me want to read the book just as bad! It published May 3rd, 2015? WAIT ITS ALREADY OUT?! Why are you waiting on it then? I suggest you go GRAB it which is exactly what I shall do now πŸ™‚
