The Tsar's Guard Parade

I am so excited to be taking place in the Tsar's Guard Parade! I can't wait to read The Crown's Game. The cover alone should draw everyone in!

Today, I'm doing a special post about what power I'd like to have if I was in the world of The Crown's Game. Vika has the power to summon snow and turn ash into gold. Nikolai can see through walls and summon bridges out of thin air. Pretty cool, right?

I look at all the characters that have powers in books, and there's some pretty awesome ones. Mare in Red Queen can control lightning. Some characters can read minds, control fire, or shape the world they live in. How can I come up with something when there's so many options?

Both characters have two powers, and they aren't exactly related, so that's a starting point. I think I'll take Aelin from Queen of Shadow's power of creating and controlling fire, and the ability to read minds. Not super original, but also pretty cool. But only as long as I can choose when I read minds.

Given the chance, what two powers would you choose to have?

Title: The Crown's Game
Author: Evelyn Skye
Release: May 17th, 2016
Pages: 416
Publisher: Balzer+Bray


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.
