It’s time for my Fairyloot Unboxing and I cannot wait to share the goodies from this months box! The theme was Save the Kingdom and it was another incredible box from the Fairyloot team.
I have to say that the theme artwork for these boxes just keeps getting better and better – I just love this month’s artwork. I really need to think of a way to display all of the theme art/spoiler cards.
I had the cutest little helper to open this month’s box and she was so excited! The first item we pulled from the box was a gorgeous smelling Vegan Lip Scrub by Geeky Clean. This item was inspired by The Remnant Chronicles, and there were three variations. We got Morrighan.
Next up was the Save the Kingdom Tea from The Tea Leaf Co, I love English Breakfast Tea so this is definitely a hit! The packaging looks really striking too.
And then we have this gorgeous coaster from Evie Bookish which is perfect for my cup of tea when I am reading! I love the colours and design and what an amazing quote on there too “You are your own best weapon.” This item is inspired by The Winners Trilogy.
I will skip over the next item we found and do that last as it is related to the book. So after that we found the Wyrd Mark Page Flag from Fictontea Designs – I love these are they are going to be perfect to mark pages… without marking the pages!
We then found the most gorgeous booksleeve from Reverie and Ink. I love the colours on this one and the quote. It’s a great size for paperbacks and the inner lining is waterproof. The quote on the booksleeve is from An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir.
The bonus items were a Legendary tarot card and a Smoke in the Sun bookmark! I love the tarot card, I just wish I could get my hands on the others!
And on to the book and book related items! This month was another in which the book was a surprise, which was fab! The book related item was a bath bomb, in the shape of a castle. It looks amazing and I can’t wait to use it! The Bath bomb is from Little Hearts Gifts and, like the lip scrub it’s vegan!
The book was Onyx and Ivory by Mindee Arnett, and it sounds absolutely incredible! Here is the synopsis,
They call her Traitor Kate. It’s a title Kate Brighton inherited from her father after he tried to assassinate the high king years ago. Now Kate lives as an outcast, clinging to the fringes of society as a member of the Relay, the imperial courier service. Only those most skilled in riding and bow hunting ride for the Relay; and only the fastest survive, for when dark falls, the nightdrakes—deadly flightless dragons—come out to hunt. Fortunately, Kate has a secret edge: she is a wilder, born with magic that allows her to influence the minds of animals. But it’s this magic that she needs to keep hidden, as being a wilder is forbidden, punishable by death or exile. And it’s this magic that leads her to a caravan massacred by nightdrakes in broad daylight—the only survivor her childhood friend, her first love, the boy she swore to forget, the boy who broke her heart.
The high king’s second son, Corwin Tormane, never asked to lead. Even as he waits for the uror—the once-in-a-generation ritual to decide which of the king’s children will succeed him—he knows it’s always been his brother who will assume the throne. And that’s fine by him. He’d rather spend his days away from the palace, away from the sight of his father, broken with sickness from the attempt on his life. But the peacekeeping tour Corwin is on has given him too much time to reflect upon the night he saved his father’s life—the night he condemned the would-be killer to death and lost the girl he loved. Which is why he takes it on himself to investigate rumors of unrest in one of the remote city-states, only for his caravan to be attacked—and for him to be saved by Kate.
With their paths once more entangled, Kate and Corwin have to put the past behind them. The threat of drakes who attack in the daylight is only the beginning of a darker menace stirring in the kingdom—one whose origins have dire implications for Kate’s father’s attack upon the king and will thrust them into the middle of a brewing civil war in the kingdom of Rime.
I actually added Onyx and Ivory to my goodreads TBR list back in March and I cannot wait to read it. This edition of the book is absoluetly gorgeous, I love the black sprayed pages. I do have a weakness for sprayed pages!
As well as the book, we also got a signed bookplate, a sticker and a letter from the author with exclusive character art of Kate and Corwin which is by Emily Haynes.
As you can see, this was another absolutely amazing box from Fairyloot and I cannot wait to take part in the photo challenge and of course I am really looking forward to finding out what the July theme is going to be!
