Vika is the fierce and feisty enchanter who stole the hearts of two best friends in The Crown’s Game. She’s small in stature but has some mighty magical powers and a winning spirit. While she may not be someone you’d want to face in a magical battle to the death, she’s also kindhearted and loyal. We think this art perfectly captures all of Vika’s fiery personality!

Nikolai is the dapper and suave man about town who also happens to be one of the empire’s two enchanters. He’s best friend to the tsarevitch and a total fashion plate – but don’t let that fool you. Nikolai’s also a deep soul with a mysterious past and heart of gold. Nikolai wants to do the right thing for his friend and country, but when he falls for the girl he’s supposed to defeat, where will his alliances lie? We think this art perfectly captures Nikolai’s conflicting emotions, not to mention the fact he’s really really ridiculously good looking.

Literally the golden boy – Pasha is also the future Tsar of imperial Russia. He’s charming, mischievous and a total softie. But when his best friend and his dream girl have to face off for the chance to become his Royal Enchanter (a competition only one can survive) who will Pasha root for? And how can he root against either? You’ll have to read The Crown’s Game to find out, but we LOVE how this piece captures Pasha’s trouble-making spirit with that smile.

Behind The Scenes
