The Tsar's Guard Parade: Fashion inspired by the (gorgeous) book cover! + Giveaway

March 10, 2016

I'm unbelievably excited for The Crown's Game by the lovely Evelyn Skye! (Is there anyone who isn't?!)

I'll admit that there's a lot about this book that's appealing (example A being the synopsis, I mean, holy WOW does this book sound good.)
But can we just take a moment to talk about the cover because IT. IS. STUNNING.
So stunning in fact that you may want to wear clothes inspired by it? 
Well, today, I'm here to share with you some clothes I found that resemble the glorious cover.

Outfit 1: Casual

Maybe a better term for this outfit is... fancy casual? 

I may not be sure of what to call this type of outfit but I am sure of one thing.
The mix of the golds, navy blues, and white's will be sure to make you look fabulous. Any day, any time.

Outfit 2: FANCY, Fancy

This dress is, simply put, absolutely stunning. 

Once again, the gold and white aspects of the dress will keep you matching with the cover.

Vika Andreyeva can summon the snow and turn ash into gold. Nikolai Karimov can see through walls and conjure bridges out of thin air. They are enchanters—the only two in Russia—and with the Ottoman Empire and the Kazakhs threatening, the Tsar needs a powerful enchanter by his side.

And so he initiates the Crown’s Game, an ancient duel of magical skill—the greatest test an enchanter will ever know. The victor becomes the Imperial Enchanter and the Tsar’s most respected adviser. The defeated is sentenced to death.

Raised on tiny Ovchinin Island her whole life, Vika is eager for the chance to show off her talent in the grand capital of Saint Petersburg. But can she kill another enchanter—even when his magic calls to her like nothing else ever has?

For Nikolai, an orphan, the Crown’s Game is the chance of a lifetime. But his deadly opponent is a force to be reckoned with—beautiful, whip smart, imaginative—and he can’t stop thinking about her.

And when Pasha, Nikolai’s best friend and heir to the throne, also starts to fall for the mysterious enchantress, Nikolai must defeat the girl they both love . . . or be killed himself.

As long-buried secrets emerge, threatening the future of the empire, it becomes dangerously clear . . . the Crown’s Game is not one to lose.

About Evelyn:

Evelyn Skye was once offered a job by the C.I.A., she not-so-secretly wishes she was on "So You Think You Can Dance," and if you challenge her to a pizza-eating contest, she guarantees she will win. When she isn't writing, Evelyn can be found chasing her daughter on the playground or sitting on the couch, immersed in a good book and eating way too many cookies. THE CROWN'S GAME is her first novel. Evelyn can be found online at and on Twitter @EvelynSkyeYA.


1 winner will receive an ARC of THE CROWN’S GAME. International! (Yay!)

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day!
