Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking The Spine that shows the upcoming books that many of us are anticipating! This week, I’m waiting for…
Title: A Crown of Wishes (The Star-Touched Queen #2)
Author: Roshani Chokshi
Expected Publication: March 28th 2017
Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin
Gauri, the princess of Bharata, has been taken as a prisoner of war by her kingdom’s enemies. Faced with a future of exile and scorn, Gauri has nothing left to lose. Hope unexpectedly comes in the form of Vikram, the cunning prince of a neighboring land and her sworn enemy kingdom. Unsatisfied with becoming a mere puppet king, Vikram offers Gauri a chance to win back her kingdom in exchange for her battle prowess. Together, they’ll have to set aside their differences and team up to win the Tournament of Wishes—a competition held in a mythical city where the Lord of Wealth promises a wish to the victor.
Reaching the tournament is just the beginning. Once they arrive, danger takes on new shapes: poisonous courtesans and mischievous story birds, a feast of fears and twisted fairy revels.
Every which way they turn new trials will test their wit and strength. But what Gauri and Vikram will soon discover is that there’s nothing more dangerous than what they most desire.
I haven’t actually read the first book yet, but I am looking forward to this book coming out! I do have it on my shelf, but I think I might wait for this one to come out so that I can read them back to back. On a side note, how pretty is this cover?! My favorite colors are green and purple, and I think this cover is just perfect!
What are you waiting for this week?
