About A Crown of Wishes (via Entertainment Weekly):

Fans of Roshani Chokshi’s spell-binding bestseller The Star-Touched Queen are in for a treat with EW’s exclusive cover reveal and excerpt from the upcoming sequel A Crown of Wishes. 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.
If you know how much I adored The Star-Touched Queen (which is a lot, considering TSTQ is one of my absolute favorite books, if not my #1 favorite book of all time), you can only imagine my delight when I finished TSTQ many months ago and immediately found out a companion novel was in the works. AND YESTERDAY THEY RELEASED THE COVER AND A PROPER SYNOPSIS AND AN EXCERPT AND IT'S MORE THAN I EVER COULD HAVE DREAMED OF. The cover is perfect, the description is fantastic, and that excerpt. I just want to know what happens to Gauri and Vikram and everyone RIGHT NOW.


  1. The cover is PERFECT, the synopsis is PERFECT, and the first chapter is PERFECT. NEED, NEED NEED. Great choice this week! ^.~
