Waiting on Wednesday is a fun way to show the books you’re highly anticipating and is a weekly meme hosted at Breaking the Spine. We decided to do it here too!!
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.
Okay, this is one of my most anticipated releases of 2016, and I’m so happy because the reviews have been stellar so far!!! I’m freaking out fdjkgajsdkag
(this gif is a representation of me freaking out)
Anyway, I have high hopes for The Crown’s Game because it’s a MONARCHICAL FANTASY!!! This is my favorite kind of fantasy to read because of the court intrigue. I’m so excited huhu. I hope that May 17 comes closer because that’s when it’s going to be published by Baltzer + Bray.
I AM SO READY FOR THIS BOOK.
What book are you guys eagerly anticipating? I’d love to know!!
Happy reading! 🙂
