The Third Daughter of the Queen wants her birthday to arrive so she’ll be free to marry for love, but rumors of a new flying weapon may force her to accept a barbarian prince’s proposal for a peace-brokering marriage. Desperate to marry the charming courtesan she loves, Aniri agrees to the prince’s proposal as a subterfuge in order to spy on him, find the weapon, and hopefully avoid both war and an arranged marriage to a man she does not love.

Third Daughter is the first book in the The Dharian Affairs Trilogy (Third Daughter, Second Daughter, First Daughter). This steampunk-goes-to-Bollywood (Bollypunk!) romance that takes place in an east-Indian-flavored alternate world filled with skyships, saber duels, and lots of royal intrigue. And, of course, kissing.

From the author of the bestselling Mindjack Trilogy, The Dharian Affairs is a new series filled with equal doses of action-adventure and romance, meant to appeal to fans of Mindjack.

My Review:

Steampunk meets Bollywood is not something I thought I would ever be reading, but you know I can say that I liked this one a lot. The writing is really crisp and clear and gets the points across without being muddled like some books can get if they over describe. Aniri is a very spunky character that I think a lot of readers will like. The overall story was a non traditional romance that does not slap you over the head with being a romance.


If you want something entertaining and different this is a good read for you. There were one or two parts that slowed a little bit but nothing to bad, gets a great 4 bows from me.

My rating in the end: 4 bows (might have a fun graphic later)
