Waiting on Wednesday: A Crown of Wishes (Star-Touched Queen #2) by Roshani Chokshi

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.  This week I've once again chosen a sequel.  The way the first book, The Star-Touched Queen, ended, I needed to know more, I was left unsure exactly how things ended up.  But with this second book, I'm looking forward to seeing what I can learn from another point of view.  Here's the blurb from Goodreads:

The new novel follows Gauri, the younger sister of the titular Star-Touched Queen, on her harrowing quest for freedom.

When Gauri, the princess of Bharata, is captured by her kingdom’s rivals, she can only find help in Vikram, the cunning prince of an enemy kingdom. Unsatisfied with royal life, Vikram offers Gauri a chance to win back her kingdom in exchange for her battle prowess. They set aside their differences and team up to compete in the Tournament of Wishes, wherein the Lord of Wealth promises a wish to the victor. Every which way they turn new trials will test their wit and strength. But what Gauri and Vikram soon discover is that there’s nothing more dangerous than what they most desire.

Have you read the first book yet?  Does this one sound like one you'd want to read?  What book or books are you eagerly awaiting this week?
