The Star-Touched Queen

Rate this book
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.

*I no longer read direct messages on Goodreads, but I'm always happy to hear from you on Goodreads Ask The Author section, website contact form or Twitter!

*Policy on friend requests: Please don't be offended if I don't accept your friend request! I use my GoodReads account a lot, and I get sucked into this Vortex of Angst and Concern whenever I stumble on a reader/reviewer's status update/review of my book. For my own sanity, I try not to read reviews. When that reader/reviewer friends me, those statuses/reviews become impossible to avoid.
