    Brilliant Character Development

    he total change of world and predictability in The Crown’s Fate from book one was the first thing that struck me – I could TELL how much Evelyn Skye’s writing style had matured as she wrote about the darkness that overtook a certain loving character, how she wrote about a playful boy becoming the Tsar of a great country and an enchanter figuring out what it means to be a girl with both power and responsibility. The very change in the writing and the development of the characters really took this book to a whole new level. PLOT AND IDEA: I’m going to do these two together. I’ve always loved the idea behind the series and I also ADORED the magic in book one. The plot for book two, like the writing, went so much deeper. The magic broke the impossible barriers it had already set in book one, there was more intrigue in the air as all our favourite characters figured out who they were supposed to be in the aftermath of a brutal game. Everything about this book was great until I reached the ending, which was so melodramatic and totally re-highlighted the unnecessary love triangle SO MUCH it made me cringe. I actually closed the book whispered, “No, ANYTHING but that,” and continues reading because in a book that managed to break all clichés, it ENDED IN SUCH AN AWKWARD ONE. CHARACTERS: Like I said in The Writing, I THOUGHT THE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT IN The Crown’s Fate WAS GENIUS! The book rotated between the points of view of the three main characters, a little bit of Nikolai’s mother, a guard and other secondary characters. It was just the right amount of characters telling the story that they got it right, especially because almost all of them had their own internal turmoil going on and it made me feel like I knew these characters more. CONCLUSION: A richly created Russian Fantasy with barrier breaking magic. I can only wish that the ending was better and this book would’ve gotten a solid five stars from me!

    Good story

    I really enjoyed the first book, the Crown's Game. The second book was also good but I felt like the resolution at the end was a bit quick. I really liked Nikolai's character in the first book and really despised his character for most of the second book. I wanted to like him again for a longer period of time, but his essence was tainted by bitterness for so much of the story. Otherwise the story was well written and interesting and Vika was a likeable, sympathetic character throughout.

    What happened here??

    I don't know what happened to the author but this book is so lacking. I know the first book wasn't perfect, but this is so much worse. Everything was way too convenient
