An exclusive Star-Touched novella over 100 pages long!

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.


Death and Night is the story of Maya and Amar before The Crown of Wishes.

It’s great to see their very first encounter, death and night, and as much to tell you that she did not make it easy.

I loved the story and I think it gives a little extra to their couple. They are so cute together, I loved their meeting and the fact that Amar is struggling to seduce her.

Maya is the Night and she’s alone, except for her only friend, Nritti. When Amar, the Death, comes to propose something to her, she resist, she takes her time and ask him three wish. And the beautiful thing in the story is that he gives her these three things.

This review won’t be long because the novel is not long, it’s a fast reading and if you liked The Crown of Wishes, you will love this story.

Roshani Chokshi has a gift with word, she can tell a story with beautiful words and you will feel them in your heart.

Quick word: A beautiful first encounter for an infinite love.
