About the Book


Fate and fortune. Power and passion. What does it take to be the queen of a kingdom when you're only seventeen?

Maya is cursed. With a horoscope that promises a marriage of Death and Destruction, she has earned only the scorn and fear of her father's kingdom. Content to follow more scholarly pursuits, her whole world is torn apart when her father, the Raja, arranges a wedding of political convenience to quell outside rebellions. Soon Maya becomes the queen of Akaran and wife of Amar. Neither roles are what she expected: As Akaran's queen, she finds her voice and power. As Amar's wife, she finds something else entirely: Compassion. Protection. Desire...

But Akaran has its own secrets – thousands of locked doors, gardens of glass, and a tree that bears memories instead of fruit. Soon, Maya suspects her life is in danger. Yet who, besides her husband, can she trust? With the fate of the human and Otherworldly realms hanging in the balance, Maya must unravel an ancient mystery that spans reincarnated lives to save those she loves the most ... including herself.

Critical Praise

'Wildly romantic and cloaked in mystery and secrets, this book is pure escapism at it's best. Readers will be swept away by the gorgeous prose and glittering imagery of this fantasy adventure. The romance is dark and sumptuous and the world is vividly painted.' — Sarah McDuling (Netgalley)

'Lost Girl is fearful in tone, filled with atmospheric details, and in the end, an absolute delight to read. I definitely lost myself for a while there and in good company.' — Tien H (Netgalley)

'I absolutely loved this book and would highly recommend 'The Star-Touched Queen' to every reader, who loves to get lost in a grand story and live in other worlds.' — Jennifer Villmow (Netgalley)
