From New York Times bestselling author, Roshani Chokshi, comes Star-Touched Stories: a fantasy collection of three lush and adventurous stories set in the Star-Touched world. 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?
My favorite is without a doubt DEATH AND NIGHT. It is perfectly written, especially Dharma Raja's character. The romance in these stories made me swoon and my heart race. I love that I was also able to read one story at a time and feel satisfied at the end.
I'm so thankful to Roshani Chokshi for bringing us these stories to satisfy a craving for the Star-Touched world. I devoured these three romantic short stories and they stuck with me even once I finished. I love Roshani Chokshi's enchanting and alluring style of writing that will always keep me hooked. It's unique and magical.
Final Verdict: I recommend this to fans of romance, short stories, fantasy, and the Star-Touched world.
