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 the only enchanters in Russia, and when the Ottoman Empire and the Kazakhs threaten to attack, the tsar wants a powerful enchanter by his side, and as an advisor for the prince, Pasha. He initiates the Crowns Game, a duel of magical skill, and the winner will become his Imperial Enchanter; the loser will die. For Vika and Nikolai, the game is a chance of a lifetime, but they come to realize that their growing regard for each other makes the game impossible to win. And as long-buried secrets emerge, threatening the future of the empire, it becomes increasingly clear to them that the Crowns Game is not one to lose.

Review: “The Crown’s Game” by Evelyn Skye is a book for people who like magic and fantasy. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I would absolutely share this book with fiends and family. I loved this book and thought that it was fabulous. I liked this book because of the tension and the romance. I am a HUGE sucker for the romance, but not mushy kind of things. This book was the right amount of romance that didn’t make me cringe. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes magic with a mixture of romance. I never would have come across this book if it weren’t for the teen book group I’m in. I like this book so much because it reminds me of “The Hunger Games”. I liked that series so much. Finally, I think this book should be read by anyone and everyone. It’s fantastic!
