When Russia is threatened by the Ottoman Empire and the Kazakhs, The Tsar initiates the Crown’s Game to find a worthy Imperial Enchanter. Vika Andreyeva is as wild as the elements at her command and has prepared her whole life to serve the empire. Nikolai Karimov excels at manipulating mechanics and has no intention of losing the high-stakes competition. But when the two finally meet, their magic calls to one another and both Vika and Nikolai can’t deny their connection. The rules of the Game, however, are very clear: prove that you are the better enchanter or be prepared to lose your life. In the Crown’s Game, there can be only one victor.
