Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.
Faith here (Haha not I'm not avoiding Nanowrimo again...) and today I'm going to be talking about a book that I'm currently waiting for...and anticipating.... and dying because it doesn't come out until May of next year. I love this author and I'm personally super excited for this debut. (Probably out of this world amazing debut.) I'll stop fangirling for long enough so that I can tell y'all the book.
"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."
I'm excited for everything to do with this book! (I've been holding out on posting a WoW until the cover was released but lookie it's so pretty!) If this book interests you then maybe sign up for the Tsar's Guard?
What is your WoW?
Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!
