Hello, Book Dragons! It’s me again with another unboxing to finish the little project that I started in January last year. I set myself a goal to review 12 book box subscription services, and Fairyloot is the last one on my list. I have to admit that this subscription box is hard to obtain because there is quite a long waiting list to join, just like Illumicrate boxes, these two boxes a the most popular among YA fantasy readers. The box cost around £35 a month and it normally has one hardback YA fantasy book as well as 4-5 fandom Items from small businesses. If you would like more information about the services, please visit https://www.fairyloot.com/ So, below are all the items I have received in this box in December 2021.
In this box, I have received a book sleeve that has been inspired by These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong. The book sleeve seems high quality, has a zip and I really like the design on it as well. I also received two monthly collectable tarot cards that are Nine and Ten of Pentacles and they feature Eo and Victra from the Red Rising series by Pierce Brown. In December, Fairyloot started a new collectable series of mythology foil bookmarks. In the first instalment, we have Hades and Persephone. I really love the foiled bookmarks, and the tarot cards I will be using as bookmarks as well because I don’t collect them.
In this box, I also received a dagger letter opener from their mini literary weapon replica series that was inspired by The Prince oh Hearts’ (Jacks) dagger from Once Upon a Broken Heart by Stephanie Garber. This dagger looks very cute and sturdy and I think I will be opening my book mail with it. 😀 Another Item in the box was the iron-on patch that features Nasir’s tattoo from We Hunt The Flame by Hafsah Faizal and the design is created by none other than the author herself. I think it would look great on any denim jacket. The little bookmark has the characters from the book of the month and the artwork is the same as on the spoiler card. 🙂 I also received a second book in December’s box, it is The Coldest Touch by Isabel Sterling. The book has an exclusive cover and is digitally signed. Here is the blurb:
Elise is cursed. Every time she touches someone, she experiences how they will die. And when she predicts, but is unable to prevent, her brother’s death, Elise is desperate to escape her terrible gift. Then she meets Claire, a vampire tasked with helping Elise master her rare powers – and recruiting her to the Veil, a secret organisation determined to protect the paranormal world at all cost. At first, Elise is reluctant to work with a vampire, but when she predicts a teacher’s imminent murder, she’s determined to stop the violent death. As Elise and Claire grow closer, Elise begins to wonder – can she really trust someone tasked with securing her loyalty? Someone who could so easily kill her? Someone who might hold the key to unravelling her brother’s mysterious death?
The book of the month is Year of the Reaper by Makiia Lucier. The book has an exclusive cover, sprayed edges, artwork on the reverse of the dust jacket, foil embossing on the hardcover, and comes with a signed bookplate. The author’s letter is printed on a beautiful character card (top left). The book looks absolutely stunning and I can’t wait to read it. Here is the blurb for you all:
Three years ago, Lord Cassia disappeared in the midst of war, on a mission entrusted to him by the king. Since then, a devastating plague has swept the land, leaving countless dead and the kingdom forever altered.
Having survived a rotting prison cell and a merciless illness, Cas, now eighteen, wants only to return to his home in the mountains and forget past horrors. But home is not what he remembers. His castle has become a refuge for the royal court. And they have brought their enemies with them.
When an assassin targets those closest to the queen, Cas is drawn into a search for a killer… one that leads him to form an unexpected bond with a brilliant young historian named Lena. Cas and Lena soon realize that who is behind the attacks is far less important than why. They must look to the past, following the trail of a terrible secret – one that could threaten the kingdom’s newfound peace and plunge it back into war.
We have come to the end of the box, my favourite items in this box were the monthly book, of course, and I really liked the book sleeve, the dagger and the foiled bookmarks. As I mentioned before, I enjoy useful things and I think this book has them. The box is a little pricey, but I think the book and book sleeve made up the price of the box on their own if I would try to buy them separately, so it’s not that bad… 🙂 I have come to the end of my project and I hope you enjoyed reading the unboxing reviews. 😉
Thank you for your time, and until the next post! 😉 ❤
