Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which shines a light on eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.
This week my pick is;
A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi
Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin
Release Date: 28th March 2017
Fans of Roshani Chokshi’s spell-binding bestseller The Star-Touched Queen are in for a treat with EW’s exclusive cover reveal and excerpt from the upcoming sequel A Crown of Wishes. The new novel follows Gauri, the younger sister of the titular Star-Touched Queen, on her harrowing quest for freedom.
When Gauri, the princess of Bharata, is captured by her kingdom’s rivals, she can only find help in Vikram, the cunning prince of an enemy kingdom. Unsatisfied with royal life, Vikram offers Gauri a chance to win back her kingdom in exchange for her battle prowess. They set aside their differences and team up to compete in the Tournament of Wishes, wherein the Lord of Wealth promises a wish to the victor. Every which way they turn new trials will test their wit and strength. But what Gauri and Vikram soon discover is that there’s nothing more dangerous than what they most desire.
After finished The Star-Touched Queen and discovering a companion novel was being released it went straight onto my to-read list despite, at the time, not having a title, cover or blurb. Now it has all three and I am even more excited than I was before. I loved Gauri in The Star-Touched Queen so I can’t wait to see her in her own story.
So what does everyone think; is A Crown of Wishes a must on anyone else’s to-read list or are there any other books that you can’t wait for to be released?
