A Crown of Wishes

Roshani Chokshi

In her companion to The Star-Touched Queen (2016), Chokshi returns to a vivid fantasy world steeped in Hindu mythology. Princess Gauri of Bharata has been captured by the enemy and sits in an Ujijain prison awaiting her execution. Hope unexpectedly comes in the form of Vikram, the cunning prince of a neighboring land and her sworn adversary. He’s intent on using his wits and Gauri’s martial skills to enter the Tournament of Wishes—a competition held in a mythical city where the Lord of Wealth promises a magic wish to the victor. An unlikely pair, Gauri and Vikram must set aside their differences and confront their fears if they're to have any hope of winning the Tournament.
