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?
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.
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.
