I think this story had a strong start. Hinted at great powers, subtle forces moving beyond the control of the main character!
But the main story was a little flatter. Mind you, it was still a pretty enjoyable listen. It wasn't very demanding of the listener. And it's great to have a fantasy YA novel that takes place somewhere other than fake-Europe.
I recommend listening to it. But I probably won't listen to it twice

I really liked this story and wanted to love it but there were some parts in the beginning that took a while to get into. Once the second part started I was hooked. Kamala , the demon horse was fantastic and I think has more than earner her place among my top sidekicks. The story wrapped up very nicely and I wasn't left with any questions, extra hopes or even expectations.
Maybe if I had read a physical copy I would've felt more connected to the main protagonist but still, the star touched queen was an enjoyable read.

If you could sum up The Star-Touched Queen in three words, what would they be?
Refreshing well-written setting
Any additional comments?
The other reviewers, who comment about the lack of plot, do have a point: the plot starts relatively late, but in my opinion, the gorgeous worldbuilding more than makes up for the late start of the main plot. The world feels very real, and constantly shows that the story and world area not based on a pseudo-medieval Europe, which is very refreshing.
The characters are interesting people, with obvious inner turmoil and their own personalities.
Some of the plot feels a little stunted, but again, the worldbuilding is great and refreshing and that, in my opinion, makes the book completely worth it.
The narrator fits the story very well, and adds very much to the experience.
