I Want to Read It (6): Crown's Game




I Want to Read It, a hybrid between WLW (or WOW) and what's on my to-be read pile. Well, instead of focusing just on books I would like to acquire, I will be using it to feature books that I just want to read. From the one's I want to buy to the one's sitting on my TBR at home.

Crown's Game (Crown's Game, 1) by Evelyn Skye, May 17, 2016. Published by 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?
Why: Just last week I took part in, the still ongoing, Tsar's Guard Parade for Evelyn Skye's The Crown's Game. Which reminded me how much I desperately want to read her book!! Seriously though it is one of my most anticipated new read this year!! Everything about it is just calling my name and saying, "read me, read me!!"

Really, this is just one of those book that I know I'm going to need to read!! Now begins that plotting on getting my hands on a copy...I'm thinking my library may be the route to go for the time being!!

So, are you, dear readers, as excited as I am for The Crown's Game?!?!?
