Arc Review | The Star-Touched Queen

While I thought the writing in The Star-Touched Queen was quite beautiful, nothing seemed to happen for quite a while in the story. This, more than anything else, made me bored with the story.Star-Touched

Some things that I liked:

  • As I mentioned, the writing. The way Roshani Chokski puts together a sentence is beautiful. There are some good quotes in this book.
  • the fact that is retelling Indian folklore/mythology.
  • Maya—she’s strong and fierce, and she loves books

Some things I didn’t like:

  • Like I mentioned, the plot. Nothing seems to happen for a quite a while. And even when something does happen, it doesn’t keep up the tension from that event (if that makes sense). It’s nothing that really stays with you and makes you want to keep reading.
  • Amar—His character sort of reminds me of the Greek god, Hades. (So I guess, in a sense, Maya is Persephone). There was just something about him that I didn’t care for. More than anything, I’m indifferent to him.

One thing that had struck me while reading this book, was that the plot reminded me at times of Sarah J. Maas’s book, A Court of Thorns and Roses (which is such a fantastic book!). I think that took away some of the enjoyment of this book.

Overall, this just wasn’t for me. It had some good pluses to it, but it ended up being just okay for me.
