Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up-Born with a horoscope that predicts a marriage of death and destruction, Maya is an outcast in her father's kingdom, Bharata. When Amar's political machinations go horribly wrong, Maya finds herself married to him and queen of Akaran-a mysterious place filled with secrets and magic. Amar offers Maya the chance to rule at his side and become more than Bharata ever would have allowed. All he asks in return is her patience and trust, which soon prove more than she can give. Her search for answers will lead her across worlds and through her own fragmented memories to discover surprising truths about her husband's kingdom and herself. Maya is refreshingly unapologetic about her ambitions and her desire for independence. Although her distrust and doubts lead to the main conflict of the story, she is quick to own those mistakes and works to correct them even when it might be to her detriment. Chokshi's debut fantasy is filled with vivid and unexpected imagery as Maya discovers the wonders and dangers found in her new home in the Otherworld. Well-researched figures from Hindu folklore and mythology, astonishing creatures, and expressive characters further complement the story. A setting drawn from ancient India, romance with feminist sensibilities, and a unique magic system reminiscent of Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Little, Brown, 2011) make this a novel sure to appeal to fans of Renée Ahdieh's The Wrath and the Dawn (Putnam, 2015). VERDICT A stunning debut filled with lush writing, smart characters, and a mysterious plot that provides as many twists as it does swoons.-Emma Carbone, Brooklyn Public Libraryα(c) Copyright 2011.

An Amazon Best Book of the Month
A Goodreads Best Book of the Month

“Chokshi's prose is captivating, and the pages come alive …. Maya is a strong heroine, and while there is romance, an emphasis on familial love adds another level of richness to a folkloric fantasy about sacrifice, self-discovery, and making your own destiny.” ―
Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Richly imagined, deeply mythic, filled with lovely language… this is an author to watch” ― Kirkus Reviews

Sarah J. Maas, New York Times Bestselling author of the Throne of Glass series.

"Roshani Chokshi has crafted a bewitching tale with a setting so vivid and unique, I wished I could step right through the pages." ―Amy Ewing, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Jewel

"Chokshi's storytelling glimmers like magic on every page-a novel meant to be savored." ―
Cindy Pon, author of Serpentine and Silver Phoenix

"A luscious, bloodthirsty fairy tale with all the romance, magic, and gorgeous mythology I could ask for ―Tessa Gratton, author of Blood Magic and The United States of Asgard series
