TBR of the Week: The Crown’s Game, by Evelyn Skye


MY ROYAL PANDA SELF IS HOME! This means back to quality posting, tags, memes and basically being here! ❤ It’s Sunday, so let’s go back to the golden age of my blogging what with my choice for TBR of the Week: The Crown’s Game, by Evelyn Skye! *–*



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.


Well, I love Europe settings on my YA’s, the fantasy elements sounds a blast, the cover is wonderful and I’ve been curious about this book since its release, but only got my own exemplar this month, haha! =D The only thing I’m worried about is this possibility of an amorous triangle, but I have been surprised by books with this element before, so… POSITIVE THOUGHTS!


Thank you for reading! Have you guys heard of The Crown’s Game before?? Maybe someone has read it and wants to encourage little me?? *–*

With love,

    • Thank youuuu!!!!! /o/ I’m trying to stay back now, haha! And I admit I’ve read two pages and moved to another book, oops! It’s not that it isn’t good, I just wasn’t in the mood for slightly dystopian >/////< #shameonthepanda
      I'll have to get back to it eventually – I don't want to turn this in my new A Court of Thorns and Roses, which took me more than a year to finish because I forgot I was reading it –" #moreshameonthepanda
