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. 

Poison and Gold

Now that her wish for a choice has come true, Aasha struggles to control her powers. But when an opportunity to help Queen Gauri and King Vikram's new reign presents itself, she is thrown into the path of the fearsome yet enchanting Spy Mistress. To help her friends, Aasha will have to battle her insecurities and perhaps, along the way, find love.

Do I Recommend this book? I recommend the whole series!

Notes and Opinions: I remember buy the first book, without even reading what it was about, just because it came out on my birthday. And honestly, I'm glad I did. I love this series so much. Now to start gushing about this book. What I liked most about it was the fact that it gave you a more in depth look into the world (not that the other books lacked detail or anything). You'll fall more in love with characters and get heartbroken by others. Goodness, Roshani is such a wonderful storyteller and her world is just so beautiful. Everyone needs their life to be blessed by her series!!
