I love this book so much!!

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.

“She was a diamond in a quarry full of quartz.” quote _Evelyn Skye, The Crown's Game


The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye is literally the best book I’ve read all year! I loved every second of it and how there were always so many layers that kept adding onto the story. There was never a down moment. It’s overflowing with magic that captivates you in the best way. I became very connected to the characters and by the time the book ended I hurried up to my room and grabbed the next book in The Crown’s Game series and sat down to read it. I couldn’t stand being away from the beloved characters.
The Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye front cover and spine
The Crown’s Game is a very suspenseful tale because of the constant danger of death for Nikolai and Vika because as the game states, kill or be killed. So of course they don’t kill each other at the start or else what would the story be about? And as the game continues, they start to develop feelings for each other. But obviously one of them has to die in the end. So nerve-racking! I love it!
