Before The Star-Touched Queen there was only Death and Night.
He was Lord of Death, cursed never to love. She was Night incarnate, destined to stay alone. After a chance meeting, they wonder if, perhaps, they could be meant for more. But danger crouches in their paths, and the choices they make will set them on a journey that will span lifetimes. (via Goodreads)
I received an eARC of this novella courtesy of Netgalley and the publisher, St. Martin’s Griffin, in exchange for an honest review.
I think I have made no secret of my love for Roshani Chokshi and her writing. I fell in love with her lyrical writing in The Star-Touched Queen, and again with A Crown of Wishes. I reviewed both of those books as ARCs (The Star-Touched Queen Review | A Crown Of Wishes Review) and bought them immediately when they released. I also was able to get Roshani to sign my copy of A Crown of Wishes in April, which was AMAZING. I was a ball of excitement.
This novella was no different, except that it made me love it in even less pages.
Just like this novella, this review will be short and sweet. Death and Night gives readers so much more depth to Maya and Amar’s romance from another life from The Star-Touched Queen, and introduces us to so many other creatures in the Otherworld.
Once again, Roshani’s words struck me deeply, to my soul even. I found myself taking notes with all of the amazing phrases and beautiful words in this novella. I won’t quote them, though, because you deserve to read this for yourself for the first time.
This was without a doubt a five star read for me, once again. I’d recommend this to everyone who didn’t entirely love The Star-Touched Queen, because this gives you the truth of their original romance. I’d probably read (and love) Roshani’s grocery list. That’s who I am as a person, so take my recommendation as you will. You can pick up a copy for yourself on Amazon or Audible!
