Perfect for fans of Shadow and Bone and Red Queen, The Crown’s Fate is the thrilling sequel to the New York Times bestselling The Crown’s Game, an atmospheric historical fantasy set in Imperial Russia.
Russia is on the brink of great change. Pasha’s coronation approaches, and Vika is now the Imperial Enchanter, but the role she once coveted may be more difficult—and dangerous—than she ever expected.
Pasha is grappling with his own problems—his legitimacy is in doubt, the girl he loves loathes him, and he believes his best friend is dead. When a challenger to the throne emerges—and with the magic in Russia growing rapidly—Pasha must do whatever it takes to keep his position and protect his kingdom.
For Nikolai, the ending of the Crown’s Game stung deeply. Although he just managed to escape death, Nikolai remains alone, a shadow hidden in a not-quite-real world of his own creation. But when he’s given a second chance at life—tied to a dark price—Nikolai must decide just how far he’s willing to go to return to the world.
With revolution on the rise, dangerous new magic rearing up, and a tsardom up for the taking, Vika, Nikolai, and Pasha must fight—or face the destruction of not only their world but also themselves.

Ta da!!! I present you my interpretation of The Crown’s Fate!

I had quite a bit of 🙃fun and maybe a bit 😅 nervous, doing this design. I hope you love it. It was a fun piece to create and really enjoyed it.

I love history, it’s one of my favorite subjects. I was delighted to brush up on a bit of Russia history today since it’s been a while.🙊 What sparked my inspiration was the beautiful cover of The Crown’s Fate. I just love the buildings from Tsar’s Russia. They’re so vibrant and lovely. I just wanted to make that the focal point of the design.
