Dying to Read (103)- THE CROWN'S GAME by Evelyn Skye

Hey y’all thanks for stopping by to see my Dying to Read post and of course as always I have to give credit to the lovely Jill over at Breaking the Spine for the Waiting on Wednesday Meme!

I can't wait to share this one! I adore Evelyn and can't wait for her book to come out!!!

Cover not available yet.


Author: Evelyn Skye
Release Date: 2016
Publisher: Balzer + Bray

The Crown’s Game, a YA fantasy set in an alternate version of Imperial Russia, is coming to you from HarperCollins/Balzer + Bray in 2016:

Sixteen-year-old Vika Andreyev can summon the snow and turn ash into gold. Eighteen-year-old Nikolai Karimov can see through walls and conjure bridges out of thin air. They are enchanters, and with the Ottoman Empire and other enemies threatening Russia, the Tsar wants an 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.
The Crown’s Game is not one to lose.
Of course, they both want to win. Until now, Vika’s magic has been confined to her tiny island home, and she’s eager to showcase her skill in the capital city of St. Petersburg. It also doesn’t hurt that the competition allows her to express her mischievous streak. Nikolai, on the other hand, is a study in seriousness. As an orphan with not a drop of noble blood in his veins, becoming the Royal Enchanter is an opportunity he could, until now, only dream of. But when Vika and Nikolai begin to fall for each other, the stakes change.
And then, the stakes change again, as secrets from both their pasts threaten to upset the balance of the Tsar’s-and the Russian Empire’s-power.
The Game is so much more complicated than it looks.

So what do you think? Will you be adding this to your pile? What are you dying to read this week?


  1. Ooh love that blurb and how the characters are enchanters. Seems interesting. Hope we both read this one soon and enjoy it :)

    Happy Wednesday!

  2. WOW! I hope the cover matches the awesome blurb :)

  3. This is SO absolutely fabulous!! It reminds me of "The Hunger Games" a little, but I think it will be better. (I don't like THG...)

    Another series this book reminds me of is The Grisha series, by Leigh Bardugo. Those books were also set in an alternate Imperial Russia.

    So I really like the plot! Cant' wait to see that cover!

    Thanks for engorging my Goodreads TBR shelves!! : )
