Evelyn Skye
(The Crown's Game #1)
Published: May 17th, 2016
Genre: YA, Historical, Fantasy

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.

  1. Magic! This magic sounds fierce and wildly unpredictable. Just the way I like it...
  2. The world-building! Centered in Russia is just an added bonus for me.
  3. A deadly game! I've always been intrigued by magical and\or non-magical fight-to-the-death games where only one victor comes out on top (Or is suppose to be the only one ;)
  4. Forbidden romance! Their romance isn't forbidden per-say, (At least I don't think it is anyway) but one must die in their magical dual. So I'd say forbidden love is a definite no-no. But of course forbidden love is never really forbidden in the eyes and hearts of the forbide'es!
  5. Royals, enchanters, magic, political-intrigue, deadly games, fun romance, lies, betrayals, hidden secrets, and more! Who wouldn't be excited???


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 and on Twitter @EvelynSkyeYA.
