Publisher's Summary

Fate and fortune. Power and passion. What does it take to be the queen of a kingdom when you're only 17?

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. Though she's 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 role is 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.

A lush and vivid story that is steeped in Indian folklore and mythology, The Star-Touched Queen is a novel that no listener will soon forget.

    Story
    "It's like trying to describe a dream..."

    Overall this is an enjoyable ride through a dream land. Like a dream it is hard to grasp at times and the transitions between each scenes or sentence will sometimes leave you lost. I've found myself rewinding often due to this. As much as this book is beautifully detailed -it lacks the detail that takes you from one place to another. Granted this isn't for reality: it is fog, dreams, star and moonshine with edible gemstones! and details like this kept me listening♡

    Story
    "I'm a fan but not a star touched one"

    I really liked this story and wanted to love it but there were some parts in the beginning that took a while to get into. Once the second part started I was hooked. Kamala , the demon horse was fantastic and I think has more than earner her place among my top sidekicks. The story wrapped up very nicely and I wasn't left with any questions, extra hopes or even expectations.

    Maybe if I had read a physical copy I would've felt more connected to the main protagonist but still, the star touched queen was an enjoyable read.

    Story
    "Enjoyable, Relaxing"

    I think this story had a strong start. Hinted at great powers, subtle forces moving beyond the control of the main character!

    But the main story was a little flatter. Mind you, it was still a pretty enjoyable listen. It wasn't very demanding of the listener. And it's great to have a fantasy YA novel that takes place somewhere other than fake-Europe.

    I recommend listening to it. But I probably won't listen to it twice

    Story
    "Beautifully written prose, but underdeveloped story"

    This story has some insanely beautiful descriptions. The author uses poetic and vivid language to describe various aspects in the book, but the plot line, character relationships and story arc are all EXTREMELY WEAK. For a large portion of the book I had no idea what was going on or why. I didn't feel like there was any love or bond between the two MC's. I don't think I'll be continuing on with the series. It took a lot for me to power through to the end of this book.....

    "different in a good way"

    this was so different from anything I've read, but it was so good. A completely new world was created and I enjoyed getting lost in it.
