A sequel and better than the first book

I liked this book better than the first one in the series, “The Crown’s Game”. However, you would really want to read the first one to know what is going on. Great story line and actually has some factual people in it. Good geography lessons on Russia if you encourage your child to look things up. There was an excerpt in the book that has one of the main characters overhearing some drunk men at a bar talking about women that was inappropirate. There is kissing and embracing. Good read for kids who enjoy magical books and enchanters.

This exciting sequel keeps the charm and intrigue of 1820s tsarist Russia while stepping up the thrills and action as two great enchanters seem destined to fight one another forever. In The Crown's Fate, author Evelyn Skye uses her descriptive powers to keep the action and plot advancing. But she doesn't leave characters behind. Vika, Pasha, Nikolai, and Yuliana are fully developed and intriguing in their own ways, adding dimension to what readers of the first book already know.

Tweens and teens who like sorcery, intrigue, battles, giant statues coming to life, and more than one character coming back from the dead will be swept up in this magical, epic story.
