    Absolutely stunning Every single word of this book is exuisite and the lush intricate world building is nothing short of remarkable I pretty much alternated sighing over the glorious prose with sighing over Vikram Gauri is one hell of a nuanced badass heroine and the vivid world she inhabits is full of wondrous magic deadly intrigues and creatures from your loveliest dreams and darkest nightmares As much as I adored THE STAR TOUCHED UEEN I think I might love A CROWN OF WISHES even Everything Roshani writes is a feast for the senses and I can't wait to read whatever she publishes next

    “A story is control” What a gorgeous novelA charming colorful atmospheric fantasy book based on Hindu epics We are thrown into a beautiful magical world of lush gardens and sweet fruits spirits and demons yakshas rakshas vanarasAnd my favorite snake demons nagasThe world building is exuisite blending so many creatures and legends into one coherent whole I have just one tiny tiny nitpick It’s so insignificant that it’s not even worth mentioning but it’s a part of a larger trend in fantasy and has become a pet peeve of mine Every once in a while I read a book set up in a fantasy universe and I come across terms referring to actual places in our world that break my immersion It could be a French braid or Carrara marble or anything In this case it was a Damask roseUnless by some coincidence there is also a city called Damascus in this fictional world and coincidentally it was also involved in the history of cultivation of this particular rose the name doesn’t make sense Would it even refer to the same rose cultivated as a hybrid of two or three other kinds for the high uality of its oil? Yeah if I’m nitpicking about this you can imagine the rest of the book is very close to perfectionThe book is full of magic and reads a bit like an ancient epic with the heroes accomplishing tasks and discovering bits and pieces of this wondrous world The characters are well developed and grow over the course of the tale Gauri and Vikram are perfect foils to each other she – pragmatic and somewhat paranoid and he – trusting hopeful and a bit naive In the end he must learn doubt and she must learn hopeThe book teaches us the importance of stories and how essential it is to listen and to share Each story has many facets and seeing only one is dangerous I think the true beauty of the book is how everything comes together at the end – the origin of vishakanyas the Serpent King’s story mirroring Gauri’s the power of storytellingWhile I loved The Star Touched ueen I still thought it had some problems But none of them pop up here I was delighted to see the author has grown so much between the two books And while I was happy to see a few references to the previous book I’m also glad they were kept at a minimum – this was Gauri’s story and she had to accomplish her goals without Maya’s help which is exactly what happensA beautiful read

    Roshani Chokshi is on the right path to becoming one of my favourite authors of all time If she keeps writing the way she does that isBecause she writes like a goddess As long as her stories are as magical as her writing her books will always be winners aka New York Times bestsellersAlthough this is marketed as a ''companion novel'' to The Star Touched ueen one can argue uite convincingly that this is of an ''unconventional'' seuelI’d go for ''seuel'' myself because this seems to complete the first book in a subtle but noticeable way Since it’s very different from its predecessor I do dare urge you to read it even if you weren’t fan of Maya’s story because this is nothing like the latterIn fact it reminded me of Caraval In both books there is a competition taking place with a wish as prize Further the main characters are partnered with someone who they consider their enemy of a sort And both novels are so pleasurable to readI will admit that I found everything to be too easy for Gauri and Vikram The characters are put in danger numerous times yet I never truly feared for them because I knew nothing bad could really happen to them In other words those scenes were rather short and not exactly convincing But I was still surprised by some outcomes The characters are far three dimensional and original than the ones from The Star Touched ueen I liked the secondary ones even as much as the main ones I’d definitely love to read Aasha’s story should Roshani Chokshi write it The mythology is fantastic I sure hope she’ll expand this world building In the first book it doesn’t look like much but we know so much about it thanks to this seuel I’ve come to admire it so I want of it Greedy meThe romance is extremely convincing Oh I just cannot resist well done lovehate relationshipsTwo chapters in and you’re in loveBlog | Youtube | Twitter | Instagram | Google | Bloglovin’

    Oh Roshani Roshani Roshani what have you done to my heart?This book is just as lush and beautiful as it's touted to be but even than that it's damned smart writing The lovely whimsiness Is that a word? bangs gavel NOW IT IS of the world building is reminiscent of Roald Dahl and Laini Taylor with a dash of A Midsummer Night's Dream thrown into the mix for good measureIf you enjoy books about sharp young women with even sharper wit and boys who were made to make you swoon pick up this gem of a story Chokshi outdoes herself

    112017 edit I just turned in my very last Star Touched ueen novella which is about Gauri Vikram after the events of A CROWN OF WISHES and now I feel very nostalgicto all of you who have read and reviewed ACOW and brought it to the attention of other readers thank you so much Writing in this world freed up parts of my heart I didn't know needed freeing I'm not sure if or when I'll return to this world again but I am glad that I got the chance to wander through it even one last time 3 A CROWN OF WISHES is hereeeee ACOW is very dear to my heart for many reasons I don't think you need to read TST to enjoy ACOW They are sister tales about two sisters And just like how knowing one sister in a family doesn't mean that you know the other sometimes it gives you a little depth and insight Gauri and Vikram are characters that sprung to life for me They've pestered me legit walked off the page when I asked them to follow an outline and also taught me so much not just at the crafts level but also on a human level I'm grateful for this story even though extracting the words from my brain sometimes felt like a horrible funerary rite and less of a let me give life to a thing ANYWAY I hope it finds a home in your heart 3Rosh

    Full review update spoiler free Holy crap This was PHENOMENAL Absolutely a new ALL TIME favorite Can I give this one than 5 stars please? I was a bit nervous going into this one because while I adore Roshani's writing and imagery I had a little bit of a hard time understanding what was happening in her first novel A Star Touched ueen If you felt the same let me urge you to give this one a try First of all it is a companion novel so I don't think you even necessarily have to read or have understood the first I wasn't lost at all But that doesn't mean you shouldn't give AST a try you totally should Secondly the writing in this was just as beautiful but easier to digest The story is still a little abstract at times but I was never confused or lost I LOVED EVERY SENTENCE I'm still blown awayHere's a list of reasons you need to read this book1 Vikram see below 2 Magic3 Hate to love? You'll have to see ; 4 Gorgeous scenery culture5 HOLY CRAP FEELS6 Princes Okay Vikram 7 Badass heroine who is fierce relatable but makes mistakes8 Unpredictable plot9 Jaw dropping uotes10 This book is everythingOkay back to my review What really made this shine was the characters Oh my goodness they were so much fun Gauri was a pleasant surprise a princess in captivity but who doesn't cower before anyone This girl has determination strength and guards her heart so carefully She tends to be uite serious and doesn't accept fun easily which is perfect because it isn't long before she meets and attempts to kill Vikram the Prince of the country she is captive in He's witty hysterical and ridiculously hes brilliant Yeah He can legit outsmart anyone Oh and he's handsome But trust me that is merely the start of the story Vikram and Gauri end up having to team up for a competition and things get so interesting The best part though is their dynamic They are polar opposites but they find out pretty uickly that they both have similar struggles and passions Their banter was my favorite part Vikram loves nothing than to ruffle her feathers and I loved their chemistryAll the characters even the side ones are so complex and beautifully written I was just so in love with everything Where as the writing was hard for me to swallow in the last book this one was just perfection Humanity has nothing to do with what runs through your veins or shows up on your skin I found myself rereading pages JUST BECAUSE THEY WERE SO GORGEOUS How many times have answers been so simple and yet someone is determined to take the path of thorns instead of roses? Okay I have so much to add soonI honestly don't want to give anything else about the plot away Let it be a surprise Go in blind This is all feels and pure fun I have ZERO complaints Not one I can't even begin to count the amount of smiles it put on my face My Blog Instagram Twitter Etsy

    okay you guys some real talk here i know so many of you hated the first book in this duology but please believe me when i say this seuel is sooo much better actually i wouldnt even consider this a seuel because it can be read on its own not only because it is its own story but also because its just that goodplotwise this actually reminded me a lot of caraval but where caraval had a whimsical and carefree feel to it this was lush in ancient folklore and magic and even though the tournament of wishes is a main focal point what really captured my attention were the characters and how the tournament made them grow and develop into the people they were so desperate to become i thought the character depth was fantastic and it was such a pleasure to read about gauri and vikrams journey together also the writing in this was seriously swoon worthy i will concede that it may take others some time to get used to but chokshis command of language and description was phenomenal it really was such an asset to the way the story was told so if there is anything i want you take away from this review its this if you hated ‘the star touched ueen’ just forget you ever read it and pick this up ASAP because i promise you wont be disappointed ↠ 45 stars

    Thank you to St Martin's Press and Griffin Teen for providing me with an ARC to review 35 STARSI wish I could give A Crown of Wishes a much higher rating I even considered setting my rating to a 35 star bumped up to 4 stars rather than 35 rounded down to a 3 but I think a 4 star rating would be a bit generous and not very honest on my part so I'm just going to set my rating to 3 stars because that's what I feel reflects my true reading experienceLet me start off by saying that I was not a fan of The Star Touched ueen I wanted to so badly love it as much as I love Roshani as a person and an author but I just couldn't get into the story Roshani has such beautiful vivid but sometimes very verbose writing I got lost in her words and descriptions and I wasn't actually able to follow the story at all I had no doubts that The Star Touched ueen was a beautiful tale and I desperately wished I was able to appreciate it But truth be told after finally reading A Crown of Wishes I think I've came to the conclusion that unfortunately Roshani's books are just not for me Or specifically this series is just not for meThe characters Gauri and Vikram were great Gauri was spunky and fearless Vikram was determined and courageous And together they made such an ultimate pair I loved their uick and witty banter and I loved their chemistry I loved them than Maya and Amar The world that Roshani has created really sweeps you off your feet There are just so many mystical creatures and places beyond our imaginations And the Tournament was such an adventurous journey to go onI loved almost everything in this book but why the three star rating right? I've thought long and hard about this and that's how I came to the conclusion that maybe this series just wasn't for me It had massive potential with many compelling characters and an intriguing plot but I just couldn't get into either book I was never really exciting or looking forward to the next page or the next chapter I enjoyed the adventures and the romances but were never really invested in them I loved ideas concepts and characters but at the same time I didn't? I'm not sure if it makes sense I guess I love the pieces but not the puzzle as a wholeIt genuinely bums me out that I can't bring myself to love these stories I love Roshani as a person and I really believe that she is a phenomenal writer whether or not I actually love her books I know that many people will love The Star Touched ueen andor A Crown of Wishes than I ever could and I still highly recommend them to my followers These books may not have worked for me but I know that it may for a lot of other readers Even if you didn't love or enjoy TST I think I that A Crown of Wishes deserves a chance because you might find yourself liking this one instead I certainly enjoyed it than I did TST and was actually able to follow the story this time around with Gauri and Vikram as opposed to Maya and Amar in TST Though I personally didn't love A Crown of Wishes I'll still be buying a finished copy and will always be looking forward to Roshani's future books

    1 The Star Touched ueen ★★★★ “A story had no ownership A story could break its bones grow wings soar out of reach and dive out of sight in the time it took just to draw breath It meant we weren't walking a cut path We carved it into existence with every step” This was utterly enchanting and completely mesmerizing I loved The Star Touched ueen when I read it last year and this story was even better Yet this story also made me fall deeper in love with The Star Touched ueen because some of the crossovers just warmed my heart to no end This was such a beautiful tale and I completely recommend this to everyone but especially story lovers because A Crown of Wishes is a lover letter to story lovers everywhere This is a companion novel to The Star Touched ueen so you do not need to read The Star Touched ueen before reading this amazing little standalone but I would completely recommend it I mean tears of joy and sadness if you do A Crown of Wishes stars a character that we were first introduced to in The Star Touched ueen Gauri the jewel of Bharata now a princess awaiting her death Her path soon crosses with Vikram an adopted prince from Ujijain who is also nicknamed The Fox Prince who is trying to run away from the memories of his pastThe story truly starts off when Vikram is invited to compete in the Tournament of Wishes which is held in the otherworldly realm of Alaka and which the Lord of Treasures hosts This tournament is said to just be myth but Vikram soon learns that it is very real and if you win the tournament you will be granted any wish in the world Yet there is a stipulation; he needs a partner “Find the one who glows with blood on the lips and fangs in the heart” And the greater powers at work lead him to Gauri Gauri is so strong and fierce yet she shows how different women are strong in different ways And how you don’t always have to draw your power from your ability to fight with a sword or dagger but to craft a weapon and draw your power for whatever the situation calls for whether it be beauty or friends or taking a risk that you never thought you’d have the strength for I loved Gauri so much She was such a wonderful main character and I want to build a garden in her honor too “I donned my armor lining my eyes with kohl until they were dark as death and patting crushed rose petals on my lips until they were scarlet as blood” While Gauri and Vikram are competing they meet a plethora of cool side characters along the way but Aasha is the one we get to spend the most time with And she also gets her own point of view Aasha is a bisexual icon and she was probably my favorite character which is really saying something because this cast is honestly 1010 phenomenal Aasha and her sisters are poisonous courtesans who are forced into a life of seclusion Aasha is thankful for her sisters who saved her when she was young and who have become her found family but Aasha wants to explore and have adventures and see of the world This is a story about a magical tournament with romance and laughter but this is also a story about trauma and grief and how sometimes being honest about our pasts is the hardest thing we will ever do I felt so much empathy for these three characters and I felt that empathy so very differently and so very similarly at the same time This story is perfectly craftedRoshani expertly wove this tale with some of the most beautiful writing my eyes have ever read This writing is lush and descriptive and so very lyrical I honestly feel like I tabbed every other page and if I were reading on my kindle I would have highlighted half the book Overall if you like mythology flawed characters that you can’t help but root for and then love wonderful new worlds important messages with such beautiful writing then you can’t let A Crown of Wishes pass you by I really loved this and I’m so very thankful that I was able to pick this up Happy readingBlog | Twitter | Tumblr | Instagram | Youtube | Twitch Buddy read with the beautiful Sonja ❤

summary Ù E-book, or Kindle E-pub ↠ Roshani Chokshi

Notoriously cunning prince of a neighboring land? He promises her freedom in exchange for her battle prowess Together they can team up and win the Tournament of Wishes a competition held in a mythical city where the Lord of Wealth promises a wish to the victor It seems like a foolproof plan until Gauri and Vikram 112017 edit I just turned in my very last Star Touched ueen novella which is about Gauri Vikram after the events of A CROWN OF WISHES and now I feel very nostalgicto all of you who have read and reviewed ACOW and brought it to the attention of other readers thank you so much Writing in this world freed up parts of my heart I didn't know needed freeing I'm not sure if or when I'll return to this world again but I am glad that I got the chance to wander through it even one last time 3 A CROWN OF WISHES is hereeeee ACOW is very dear to my heart for many reasons I don't think you need to read TST to enjoy ACOW They are sister tales about two sisters And just like how knowing one sister in a family doesn't mean that you know the other sometimes it gives you a little depth and insight Gauri and Vikram are characters that sprung to life for me They've pestered me legit walked off the page when I asked them to follow an outline and also taught me so much not just at the crafts level but also on a human level I'm grateful for this story even though extracting the words from my brain sometimes felt like a horrible funerary rite and less of a let me give life to a thing ANYWAY I hope it finds a home in your heart 3Rosh
