Taken to wife by Amar, she becomes the Queen of Akaran, but her new kingdom is a puzzle within a mystery. She roams halls filled with locked doors, she finds gardens made of glass and secrets hidden within a tree.
Danger lurks in her world, and when an old "friend" appears, Maya must choose between her heart and her head. Her choice will change the fate of all man-kind.
I enjoyed this read. The story hints at so much mystery and the author does a good job keeping things under wraps until the right time. Maya is a strong female lead, who is unable to trust those around her, both as a child and as a married woman. She struggles with feelings for her new husband, but because of the secrets he keeps, she is unable to fully give herself to him. This untrust is the perfect ground on which to breed deceit.
I myself was pulled along, not knowing who or what to believe. I had to keep reading just because I wanted the answers. Who is this best friend? What is Amar hiding? Does he really love her? Why does Maya's horoscope predict death? What about those she left behind?
This is a beautiful tale using Indian folklore, especially the idea of rebirth. The story comes full swing in a nice way and the reader is able to feel as if nothing remains untold. I'm giving it 5 stars!
