Hardcover, 416 pages
Expected publication: May 17th 2016 by Balzer + Bray

Synopsis: 

Vika Andreyeva can summon the snow and turn ash into gold. Nikolai Karimov can see through walls and conjure bridges out of thin air. They are enchanters—the only two in Russia—and with the Ottoman Empire and the Kazakhs threatening, the Tsar needs a powerful enchanter by his side.

And so he initiates the Crown’s Game, an ancient duel of magical skill—the greatest test an enchanter will ever know. The victor becomes the Imperial Enchanter and the Tsar’s most respected adviser. The defeated is sentenced to death.
Raised on tiny Ovchinin Island her whole life, Vika is eager for the chance to show off her talent in the grand capital of Saint Petersburg. But can she kill another enchanter—even when his magic calls to her like nothing else ever has?
For Nikolai, an orphan, the Crown’s Game is the chance of a lifetime. But his deadly opponent is a force to be reckoned with—beautiful, whip smart, imaginative—and he can’t stop thinking about her.
And when Pasha, Nikolai’s best friend and heir to the throne, also starts to fall for the mysterious enchantress, Nikolai must defeat the girl they both love . . . or be killed himself.
As long-buried secrets emerge, threatening the future of the empire, it becomes dangerously clear . . . the Crown’s Game is not one to lose.

Review

Russia + Magic + Romanovs + Love = The Crown’s Game

      First of all, this book is coming out in May and I can’t wait for the second one already. It deserves all the hype and it has nothing to envy to popular books like Throne Of Glass, Shatter Me or Red Queen. The Crown’s Game is full of magic, beautiful scenery, heartfelt moments and an ending that will leave you wanting more.

      I instantly fell in love with this book because it’s written in a way that it felt like I was reading a fairytale. You’ll get hypnotized by it and it gets hard to let it go. It’s told in third person POV. Each chapter about a different character including teens and adults which is makes this story perfect for all ages. My favorites character were Nikolai, Galina and Renata.

     The Crown’s Game is full of surprises in an alternate Russian world. I was shocked at many points, things I totally never expected and scenes that’ll never forget. There’s romance in this book but it was not necessary to make this book as amazing as it is. It just add a little more goodness to it.

The Crown’s Game is not a book to lose.
