The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
There have been many fantasy books written on basis of mythology but not that many in relation to Indian mythology. I read one that I remember of, and only because it was rather awful, but then this one was rather beautiful.
I’ve really enjoyed The Star-Touched Queen for the gorgeous world it conjures in my mind especially with the saris and accompanying accessories! I love the dreaminess of it all though not everything is quite right. There were twists upon twists, deceptions and betrayals amid the bloom of true love. And through all these things, Maya needs to trust in her instinct and discover herself.
I don’t know much about the Indian mythology so I don’t know how accurate or loose the interpretation of this in the book. But what I can tell you is that The Star-Touched Queen is a very easy book to lose yourself in; filled with magical creatures, wise words, and secrets, you won’t want to put it down.
