My review:

This book is about an Indian Princess named Gauri and the Prince of the neighboring kingdom, Vikram,  and their search for what their kingdoms need most: a fair and just ruler. They must travel to a magical city and enter into a magical tournament to be able to fulfill their quest. I thought that while the book started off slow it picked up in the second chapter, and was overall a very good book. I find that when reading Roshani Chokski’s work I am drawn into a world of exquisite color and light, leaving me with a sense of bedazzlement at the end. My favorite scene is when Gauri goes into a crystal garden, where the author’s attention to detail just took my breath away.  The descriptions of Gauri’s scheming older brother also had me nodding in sympathy with just how awful they can be sometimes. This book is a perfect complement to The Star Touched Queen and I can’t wait to see what’s next.
Disclaimer: I have had a soft spot for Indian mythology since I read Shiva’s fire.

Description

Reaching the tournament is just the beginning. Once they arrive, danger takes on new shapes: poisonous courtesans and mischievous story birds, a feast of fears and twisted fairy revels.

Every which way they turn new trials will test their wit and strength. But what Gauri and Vikram will soon discover is that there’s nothing more dangerous than what they most desire.
