The Crown's Fate is the conclusion to the Crown's Game duology, a magical tale folloing two enchanters, Vika and Nikolai, competing to be the Imperial Enchanter. It picks up where The Crowns Game left off, with Nikolai barley escaping death, Vika being made Imperial Enchanter, and Pasha getting ready for his coronation to become tsar.
But everyone suffers from their own set of problems. Nikolai is struggling to struggling to escape from his death-like state in a dream world of his own creation. He is nothing but a shadow, and when given a oppertunity to escape, he must face the dark price that follows.
Pasha is facing problems with his own legitamacy, and is not sure if he is quiet ready to be king. He faces problems from his love, who won't even look at him, and suffers grief from having his best friend being dead.
And Vika is slowly realizing that being Imperial Enchanter might not be as easy as it was originally put out to be.
But a revolution is slowly coming together, and with new magic being generated, life is just becoming more dangerous then any might have previously thought.
I really enjoyed this sequel. It beautifully ties together so many of the loose ends and answers many of the questions that we had at the end of The Crown's Game. Ms. Skye uses real history and entwines it with her character's lives. I loved how she once again had each enchanter battle each other with amazing feats of magic, each with a new viewpoint.
Vika and Nikolai's relationship is further expanded, giving it more depth and making us love this couple even more than before.
I love how Ms. Skye lets us see new depths to Nikolai's character, making us love him even more then before (who knew that was possible?).
We also get to experiance the historical side to this story more, and get to see exactly how Russia's people react to certain feats of magic, and what exactly they expect from a king. And thanks to Ms. Skye's studies in Russian history, we get to experiance a attempted coup right in the middle of this magical world.
The book is an amzing ending to this duology and will please any history lovers searching for a historical read filled with with magic and hidden nods to various historical figures. It beautifully concludeds Vika, Nikolai, and Pasha's tale, and makes us fall in love with the Crown's Game yet again.
