Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme hosted here. To participate, choose a random book from your TBR and show it off! Don’t forget to link back here and add your link in the comments so that others can see what you picked!
Hey Guys! I hope you all had a good weekend 🙂 The weather here has been a bit on and off, so it’s been a bit iffy! But a lot more time to read 😛 Anyway, this weeks pick for me is the second book in a duology – I wasn’t really blown away by the first, but I’m still interested to see where the series is going to go – and whether all the points can really be wrapped up in the second book! Also, quick note, I am going to stop putting inlinkz at the bottom because there aren’t really enough people linking up to put it in every week – despite the number of people that participate!

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.
