Star-Touched Stories by Roshani Chokshi
“Death and Night
He was Lord of Death, cursed never to love. She was Night incarnate, destined to stay alone. After a chance meeting, they wonder if, perhaps, they could be meant for more. But danger crouches in their paths, and the choices they make will set them on a journey that will span lifetimes.
Poison and Gold
Now that her wish for a choice has come true, Aasha struggles to control her powers. But when an opportunity to help Queen Gauri and King Vikram’s new reign presents itself, she is thrown into the path of the fearsome yet enchanting Spy Mistress. To help her friends, Aasha will have to battle her insecurities and perhaps, along the way, find love.
Rose and Sword
There is a tale whispered in the dark of the Empire of Bharat-Jain. A tale of a bride who loses her bridegroom on the eve of her wedding. But is it a tale or a truth?” ~ Description from Goodreads
I received a printed ARC of this book about a month ago through a Goodreads giveaway and sadly I am filing it away as DNF for the time being. I loved the myth/legend feel of the first story. These seem to be back stories to already existing characters in Star-Touched Queen. I have not read the Star-Touched Queen series that this is a companion book for so right now I am giving it a 3 out of 5 star rating. I’m not into short stories at all but I will being picking it back up when I read the series for sure. I absolutely loved Death and Night so Im positive this will need a rating adjustment after completing it.
I loved the story of Death and Night. The writing in this book is very beautiful. Loved the sound of the Otherworldly Night Bazar. I wouldn’t mind buying some dream fruit and people watching there.
If you have NOT read this series, I recommend that you DON’T start with this book. It is meant to be read after the series. I had to stop myself to avoid some potential series spoilers.
