The Crown’s Fate is the second book in the Crown’s Game series. The Crown’s Game was amazing, I rated it 5/5 stars and naturally, I was excited to continue on with the series. I read The Crown’s Fate pretty quickly after getting my copy. It was really great!
I did not rate it 5 stars because it was not as good as The Crown’s Game in my opinion; maybe because The Crown’s Game was the first book and I discovered a new (amazing) world, new characters etc. Still, I gave it 4 stars, which is good, because I enjoyed reading it.
The Crown’s Fate begins right where The Crown’s Game ended and I was excited to meet my old friends again. Everything that happened to the characters in this book made them change so much. Even more so that in the first book, they went through a lot and learned so many things about love, loyalty, friendship… Still, the characters are not what I liked the most about this story (as I already said in my review of the first book). What I preferred was again, the setting. By reading this book, you know the author really made a lot of research about the subjects and obviously knows a lot about Russian culture. I love it!
What is really great about the characters is the lack of romance. There is a sort of love triangle, where love does not equal romance. Not really. I cannot put words on this but I think it was well done.
I do not really know what to say about this book, it was a great continuation of the first book and I am happy about how it ended. I don’t have a lot to add, really, if you liked the first book, read this one, you won’t be disappointed. The one thing I want to mention is that I liked the fact that our characters wanted to build something new, even if they knew it would not be the easiest path to follow. Not because they were oppressed by the system or anything like you can read in a lot of YA books, here, they were actually in the minority and they have a great life. But they want to change the way Russia is and make people more equal. That was great.
I will definitely read anything this author writes, this was her debut series and I will definitely keep an eye on her projects to come.
