Fanart Friday is a feature to showcase art for books I’ve highly enjoyed recently. Usually they’re for fave characters that I can’t help but want to bring to life through my art!
I’m finally done and ready to share my character art for this gorgeous book! Stay tuned on the blog for my review of A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi, which comes out March 28, 2017 from St. Martin’s Griffin. Suffice it to say, I absolutely adored it – possibly even more than The Star-Touched Queen, which is a companion book to this one. We may or may not get some familiar characters, but throughout it all Chokshi maintains her lush writing and vibrant characters.
A Crown of Wishes

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.

And just in case, I fit the characters into phone backgrounds for your reading pleasure. Just click on the photo gallery and the Dropbox link will be in the caption.
