"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
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.
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.
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.
