The Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye
Expected Publication: May 16th, 2016 by Balzer + Bray
Find it: Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iBooks


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.


About Evelyn:

Evelyn Skye was once offered a job by the C.I.A., she not-so-secretly wishes she was on "So You Think You Can Dance," and if you challenge her to a pizza-eating contest, she guarantees she will win. When she isn't writing, Evelyn can be found chasing her daughter on the playground or sitting on the couch, immersed in a good book and eating way too many cookies. THE CROWN'S GAME is her first novel. Evelyn can be found online at www.evelynskye.com and on Twitter @EvelynSkyeYA.





Bonjour, tout le monde! I'm here today to put a spotlight on the upcoming debut fantasy from Evelyn Skye. Don't try to tell me that blurb doesn't get you the least bit excited. I put together a little Pinterest board of some fashion and architecture that really represents what I'm picturing in my mind. Granted, these don't really look much like what I've seen on Evelyn's own board and the trailer (which can be found here and you absolutely need to see), but we all picture things completely differently when we read, I think, and isn't that really the beauty of it? Obviously, I tried to focus in on the gold because, I mean, come on. WHO DOESN'T WANT TO TURN ASH INTO GOLD.
