Summary: 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.

A Mash Up Of bookish thing


Bookish Delights:

1.Getting new books. I don’t try and buy to many physical books this year. However e-books are still my weakness. However opening up a book to see the book design or end pages and am in love.

2.Organizing my shelves. I need to organize again though I don’t know how. But as long as my series are together and doesn’t look a mess am happy.

3.Audiobooks while at work. Seriously working fast food is one of the stressful part of my day. So when I have free time with nothing but cleaning I start listening to a book.

4.Having complete series. Though I don’t finish them as fast as I should I do love seeing complete series on my shelves and dream about marathoning them someday.

5.Reading a book with all my favorite things. My slow romances with the sassy male characters with a great story line  is my life.

6.when I get a like on a post or view. I don’t blog very often since I don’t read as often or stay up with a lot of things. So when I get a view or like it always make my day.

7.amazon marketplace and book outlet. I love both site though my wallet and parents disagree. However there cheap and I will some how find someplace to put them.

8. getting my mom to read one of my books. I love when my mother comes into my room and ask for a book recommendation. The ones I gave her she has liked so am a proud book worm.

9. collecting bookish things. I don’t have many but it is a hobby that I like along with collecting books.

10. goodreads shelves. They help me keep organized in all my formats of books I have. So goodreads helps me know what I have which format I have it in.

HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY: 


Today my copy of The Rose and the Dagger by Renee came in and now am currently reading The Wrath and the Dawn. Which I should have read forever ago but haven’t yet.

New Book Birthday Goes to….


  
Forest of Ruin by Kelley Armstrong is the last book in her Age of Legend. It’s back into the fantasy world with war and twin sisters try and use there gifts to stop it.

  
Now that I got the third book maybe I will continue reading Empire of Night. Or maybe not to be more realistic. But now when I do get to it I have the completed story. 

Another Book Birthday 


 
Summary:

Lorelai Diederich, crown princess and fugitive at large, has one mission: kill the wicked queen who took both the Ravenspire throne and the life of her father. To do that, Lorelai needs to use the one weapon she and Queen Irina have in common—magic. She’ll have to be stronger, faster, and more powerful than Irina, the most dangerous sorceress Ravenspire has ever seen.

In the neighboring kingdom of Eldr, when Prince Kol’s father and older brother are killed by an invading army of magic-wielding ogres, the second-born prince is suddenly given the responsibility of saving his kingdom. To do that, Kol needs magic—and the only way to get it is to make a deal with the queen of Ravenspire, promise to become her personal huntsman…and bring her Lorelai’s heart.
But Lorelai is nothing like Kol expected—beautiful, fierce, and unstoppable—and despite dark magic, Lorelai is drawn in by the passionate and troubled king. Fighting to stay one step ahead of the dragon huntsman—who she likes far more than she should—Lorelai does everything in her power to ruin the wicked queen. But Irina isn’t going down without a fight, and her final move may cost the princess the one thing she still has left to lose. -goodreads

Series: Ravenspire #1  

Another Snow White retelling where I’ve read a couple of pages and already don’t like the stepmother. She has the ambition of Lavanna from the The Lunar Chronicles. So if am right about this then I can’t wait to read more of these.
