Full review to come. I've decided I'm going to gather my thoughts and review each story so it's more concise. I didn't expected I would love this story as much as I did.
I love that finally readers could see the history between Maya and Amar. I personally feel this is a fluff story like it just made me so darn happy. Favorite part: the blooming and fruitful romance of the Dharma Raja and Night, the flowery writing that serves as another ornament of the story, and alas the organic experience of reading something so exquisite.

Throughout these stories, Chokshi's writing remains provocative and sensual - perhaps leaning towards the purple prose side for some readers. I for one really enjoyed her heady descriptions and imaginative metaphors, and any reader who has enjoyed her previous two books in this world will adore this one.
It ties in so many stories and characters, as well as presents itself as a final kiss and goodbye to the stunning world that we have visited twice already. Extraordinarily spiteful. Extraordinarily blind. Extraordinarily misleading. But what happened when they first fell in love?
Three Wise Men Dream Book
Night sold her wares at the Night Bazaar, which consists of this dream fruit that is coveted by many, but at a high price. She wants recognition. Death has been lonely these past years, and he needs to take a bride. Despite obstacles and all odds, they meet each other and begin a sweet, sometimes snarky, but altogether delightful courtship that is tested through the threads of time. When Aasha gets granted a boon to become human, she goes back to the courts with Gauri and Vikram.
Aasha finds herself lost, to an extent. An opportunity to get away from this presents itself when Gauri and Vikram ask her to become their Spy Mistress. The catch? She has to get approval first from the current Spy Mistress, who is a mysterious and apparently cold-hearted individual.
But when Aasha begins her training and finds herself completing her tests, she also finds herself drawn to the Spy Mistress and the secrets she told. It takes place distantly in the future, where a grandmother is trying to cheer up her grandchild in the wake of a large wedding. To cheer her up, she tells the story of another wedding, long ago. Aug 22, Jeann Happy Indulgence rated it really liked it Shelves: fantasy. I was pleasantly surprised at how each of the stories already feature the couples that we know, from Maya and Amar's back story and Gauri and Vikram as well.
I loved seeing more of the characters that we knew and loved from the first one and the short story format was perfect for sharing snippets of their lives - before and after we had met them in their books. As always, Roshani Chokshi's writing is romantic, beautiful, lush and captivating. Everything was so intoxicating, from the magical world based on Indian mythology of the underworld, the night bazaar, all the beautiful creatures and the denizens of the underworld.
I loved returning to the world and learning more about the fate of the characters. Definitely a must if you've read the first two books! Jul 01, Sumaya Musse rated it really liked it.

Night and Death Rating: 4 stars I read this one last year when it was released as a short story and I'm happy to see that it's found a family. I mentioned in my review last year that I wished that Nig The Star-Touched Queen series just gets better and better with each book.
I couldn't give it anything less than 3 stars, but I felt that it was missing the emotion and magic that I had grown to expect from this world. I loved Asha from A Crown of Wishes, but I wanted to feel the connection between her and her love interest. My favorite scenes from this story involved Gauri and Vikram, which doesn't say much for Asha's stage presence. Rose and Sword Rating: 5 stars This. This is the story that we're all here for!

This is a satisfactory conclusion to an epic adventure Reading these short stories reminded me why I love Roshani's writing so freaking much. All of the short stories were enchanting, mesmerizing, lush, and romantic. I could read a full novel about each of the short stories in this book! I loved going back into the world of The Star-Touched Queen series and learning more about the world, history, and favorite characters. I am a HUGE romance fan, and Roshani knows how to write romances that make me swoon like there is no tomorrow.
I feel like romances are hard to pull off in short stories, but Roshani did it masterfully. I also really enjoyed the plot of each short story. Each story had an interesting and well-developed plot that kept me hooked from the first page. This book will suck you back into the magical world and remind you just how wonderful the series is. May 20, Amy Leigh rated it it was amazing. Three magical stories that add so much depth to the world Chokshi has created. Beautiful writing that winds these stories in a fairy tale fashion that I adore! I highly recommend for fans of the series, I don't want to spoil anything for people who haven't read them yet but they are amazing.
I highly recommend! Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me this ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review. Aug 22, Lili lilikmarcus Marcus rated it it was amazing Shelves: fantasy , young-adult , novella. Oh my God, the writing But first, the stories. I'm not so into companion novels but I do love Levana's story in The Lunar Chronicles and not also into short stories or anthologies so I wasn't sure what made me request this one from Netgalley. Maybe it was the cover because duh? Death is the first narrator and I found his thoughts not only dark but sad. So sad, Oh my God, the writing So sad, my heart answered to him right away.
And then there's the love story between him and Night herself. It was perfect. I haven't felt true love in so long, I just loved it. Sure there was ssa bit insta-love an dthe plot was a little rushed but we mustn't forget this is a short story. The second story I couldn't connect that much, maybe because I heard too much from Aasha and I long to hear from the spymaster herself.
I wanna read her thoughts too. In fact I want to read hers more than Aasha becaus eshe's much darker and Aasha was all-scared adn I don't know. It's very refreshing. The third story, I adore so much. It started with a kid resenting her sister but then her granny told her a story.
The three stories somehow are connected with each other. And very much connected to the main series, I guess. I haven't read them but I want to now. The writing is juts perfect for me. I love it. So aesthetic.
So Beautiful and magical. See, I really love this kind of writing but lately all I've been reading are books with aesthetic language but said aesthetic language are used only to describe things around. But it turned Roshani Chokshi's writing is art itself. I'm gonna read all her works just for her inspiration. And oh the world. I love the world. I can't wait to read the other books in the series.. Please note that I got an ARC of this beautiful book from the publisher thru Netgalley but my opinions are my own and unbiased.

I've always been too curious about what it was like before Maya and Amar were torn apart from each other's hands. In TSTQ, we were plunged into a story of a love forgotten and a love remembered. This novella provided a glimpse as to how exactly they first met and fell in love with one another, and it was nothing short of beautiful. It turns out Death isn't as serious and broody as he seems! Poison and Gold "That's just the teeth of ambition chewing at the heart of you," she said.
It's good for you. She has one of the purest, most curious souls, and I was eager to learn more about her life after the Tournament. I'm so glad that this story was Aasha's own self-discovery as to who she really was in the wake of her wish and decision following the end of ACOW. Her journey to become the next Spy Mistress had me rooting for her to secure the spot while also rooting for her to get the girl yep, this is a sapphic love story, folks!
Rose and Sword "And she knew, even as she reached for the flame of his last breath, that loving him would be the bravest thing she had ever done. Seeing that the story begun immediately when Gauri was already a grandmother and a storyteller herself, it surprised me that I truly could be parting ways with these characters once and for all. It was also painful because this was a story racing against time, both in the past and in the present.
But as the story fell to a close and as much as I wouldn't mind reading on and on, I thought that the ending was strong and well-crafted, both for this novella and for the end of the Star-Touched Universe. Roshani Chokshi is a wondrous storyteller that can write stories that hold up on their own while still connecting it to those around. Before reading this, I was hesitant to dive into it because I know it'll be the last time I'd read about the characters I loved so much.
Often I get attached to characters, but it's not often I cling to them, hoping that their stories never end. But the author perfectly caps the world so well, and she couldn't have ended their stories on a higher and better note. Full RTC. Aug 17, Flavia rated it really liked it.

Grab a spoon and eat up every page. I know I think you could. I can't believe I DNF part of this book. I hate myself for it. What were the odds? I loved the first story, Death and Night. It was everything I wanted, everything I dreamed for the characters, so no problem here 5 stars. But when I started reading Asha's story And I don't get it, I waited so long for her story and I couldn't keep reading. I will cry til next month! I was not prepare for that beautiful ending to Gauri and Vikram story life , I'm crying while I write this.

This book was so much better, so much more than I ever could have imagined. I have decided to review the three novellas separately for you to truly see what makes them magical. And the truth was that I wanted to spend my life with someone who made eternity too short. I wanted a love that time could never erode, a foundation that would grow spires and turrets large enough to swallow constellations. And yet I wanted love like a home, a corner of the universe built for two and snug as skin.
Queen or no. The chemistry between Death and Night is amazing and out of this world. I love the way these two characters are so soft for each other yet each has their own strong individual personalities. I loved the banter between them and laughed several times. Poison and Gold The second story in the anthology takes place after A Crown of Wishes , the second novel in the series, and is about Aasha. She does that by meeting the current Spy Mistress and training under her.
In the novella, Aasha trains under the Spy Mistress for three months and at the same time finds out who she is as an individual in the space in between being human and vishakanya. With this knowledge, she truly becomes herself and finds love on the way. Instead, she reached for … herself. The space between her two lives where she existed in moments of stolen peace.
A place of curiosity. There were a lot of great moments with Aasha, Vikram, and Gauri in this story and I love how the three of them all support each other. Their friendship is just amazing. As always, the writing is just phenomenal and what also made this story so special was how it was narrated. The way this story is narrated lets you know how it will end and despite that, it will still wreck you. When I read it, I cried a bunch — more than I first expected I would. This story is just so beautiful, heartbreaking, happy, and bittersweet in the best way.
I could not imagine a better ending for Vikram and Gauri, an ending that is just so them. You will not be disappointed by this story or any of the others seen in this anthology.

You do have to take a moment to disengage yourself from each story before moving on to the next, and so it is really almost worth stopping in between each one - if you can. In fact, I'd like to thank NetGalley for the copy of Star-Touched Stories in exchange for an honest review - it really was a pleasure! In fact, with this collection I really WOULD recommend it, as they are all so different in tone and if you do what I did, which is read through them all in one sitting, you lose a bit of the magic in the writing.
It was a poignant and respectful take on the idea of Death, humanising whilst also retaining the aura of power and the role Death has in our lives. Poison and Gold, the second, was sumptuous but to me occasionally felt a little overdone and leaned a bit towards overdramatic, but that could just be my take on it as I read all of the stories one after another, and the first was SO good. The last, Rose and Sword, was lighter in tone at times and made me laugh right off the bat. The characters in this one were particularly great to me and I think it was the best way to round off the collection.
