The Crown's Game
by - Evelyn Skye
About the Book :
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. Two enchanters in the same generation, however, are a rarity. And a problem. There is only so much magic in Russia and it cannot be diluted. So the Crown's Game was invented, a duel of magical skill. The victor becomes the Royal Enchanter and the Tsar's most respected advisor. The defeated is sentenced to death. Raised on tiny Ovchinin Island her whole life, Vika is eager for the chance to showcase her skill in the grand capital of St. Petersburg. But can she kill another enchanter-even when his magic calls to her like nothing else ever has? For Nikolai, a common 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.
