Gauri, the princess of Bharata, has been taken as a prisoner of war by her kingdom’s enemies. Faced with a future of exile and scorn, Gauri has nothing left to lose. Hope unexpectedly comes in the form of Vikram, the cunning prince of a neighboring land and her sworn enemy kingdom. Unsatisfied with becoming a mere puppet king, Vikram offers Gauri a chance to win back her kingdom in exchange for her battle prowess. Together, they’ll have to set aside their differences and team up to win the Tournament of Wishes—a competition held in a mythical city where the Lord of Wealth promises a wish to the victor.

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.


First of all, Roshani's writing style is INCREDIBLE and almost magical. Her writing was lush, descriptive, whimsical, and enchanting. Her writing alone makes this book wonderful. I couldn't stop reading the book because I just never wanted to stop reading her beautiful words. Everyone needs to read these book just for the sake of experiencing Roshani's writing skills. 

The plot of this book was addictive and mesmerizing. I felt like there was never a dull moment! Each moment of this book was exciting and interesting. I never wanted this book to end!

The characters in this book were AMAZING. I LOVE THEM SO FREAKING MUCH. Gauri was such a badass. I loved how strong of a character she was. She was determined, passionate, strong, and smart. She was a great character and I want to be her when I grow up. Vikram was SO SWOON WORTHY. I fell in love with him from the first chapter. Vikram was witty, hilarious, sassy, charming, and all around perfect. He literally outsmarted everyone and I was LIVING for it. Also, he was EXTREMELY attractive. So, it was very easy for me to fall in love with him hehehe

Gauri and Vikram were almost opposites, but it worked so well for their relationship. Their banter made me laugh out loud and it made my heart flutter. Their chemistry was incredible and I never wanted them to stop interacting. THEY ARE THE BEST!!!! 

Overall, this book was incredible. I don't want to say too much because I want everyone to experience it on their own. READ THIS BOOK. ENJOY IT. BECOME OBSESSED WITH IT LIKE I HAVE. PLEASE.
