crown of wishes book coverReviewed by Richard Wisniewski

Wishes. Hopes. Desires. They can either drive one to the pinnacle of success or the abyss of demise. Roshani Chokshi transformed the traditions and beliefs behind wishes, hopes and desires to what is bound to become a New York Times bestseller. Crown of Wishes is the second installment in a series, and Chokshi truly flexed her writing capabilities from the very first page.

The story is broken out into chapters narrated by different characters. This provides for quite a unique vantage point later in the book. In all honesty, this was one of my favorite aspects of the book and has become my preferred way to tell a story.

star touched queen book coverReviewed by Amanda Farmer

The Star-Touched Queen is the first in the Star-Touched Queen series and it doesn’t disappoint. I knew I wanted to read this story just by looking at the cover–it is beautiful and who doesn’t want to read a book where the main character is cursed with a horoscope that promises a marriage of death and destruction? I had to know more. I also loved that it was inspired by Indian folklore.

This book drew me right in from the very beginning. I loved the writing and didn’t want the book to end. I still want more of Maya and Amar (prince of Akaran)–they were perfect for one another and complimented each other so well. I enjoyed reading about Akaran and the Otherworld realms. Akaran is not what it seems. It holds many secrets of its own and Maya must unravel them before it’s too late.

A Thousand Nights by E.K. Johnston is a fantasy re-telling of Arabian Nights: Tales from One Thousand and One Nights. Lo-Melkhiin has murdered three hundred girls before he came to the heroine’s village.

The heroine is nameless in the synopsis since the author did not want to reveal the sister that would be taken. Le-Melkhiin is looking for a wife; the heroine knows he will take the loveliest girl in the village, her sister. She will not let that happen and will sacrifice herself if that means saving her sister. Every girl that has been taken before has been murdered, and the heroine knows she is next. Lo-Melkhiin’s court is filled with dangerous, pretty things. However, when the first sun rises and sets, she realizes she is not dead yet. Lo-Melkhiin comes to her every
