Book Summary from Amazon:
Queen Victoria rules with an immortal fist.
The undead matriarch of a Britain where the Aristocracy is made up of werewolves and vampires, where goblins live underground and mothers know better than to let their children out after dark. A world where being nobility means being infected with the Plague (side-effects include undeath), Hysteria is the popular affliction of the day, and leeches are considered a delicacy. And a world where technology lives side by side with magic. The year is 2012.
Xandra Vardan is a member of the elite Royal Guard, and it is her duty to protect the Aristocracy. But when her sister goes missing, Xandra will set out on a path that undermines everything she believed in and uncover a conspiracy that threatens to topple the empire. And she is the key-the prize in a very dangerous struggle.
The Witches of Echo Park by Amber Bensen – Value $14
Book Summary from Amazon:
Unbeknownst to most of humankind, a powerful network of witches thrives within the shadows of society, using their magic to keep the world in balance. But they are being eliminated—and we will all pay if their power falls…
When Elyse MacAllister’s great-aunt Eleanora, the woman who raised her, becomes deathly ill, Lyse puts her comfortable life in Georgia on hold to rush back to Los Angeles. And once she returns to Echo Park, Lyse discovers her great-aunt has been keeping secrets—extraordinary secrets—from her.
Not only is Lyse heir to Eleanora’s Victorian estate; she is also expected to take her great-aunt’s place in the Echo Park coven of witches. But to accept her destiny means to place herself in deadly peril—for the world of magic is under siege, and the battle the witches now fight may be their last…
Verdict: I think this is a great book subscription if you are looking for value. It would cost me approximately $28 to buy these books from Amazon, so to get them for $15 is a great deal. To provide that value, I imagine BookCase.Club gets deals on books that aren’t new releases. (These were originally published in 2012 and 2015.) If you don’t need the most recent books, I think this could be a perfect book subscription.
One thing to mention with this Teenage Dreams box – both books are part of a series. I’m not sure if that’s something that will happen with all boxes, but if you are looking for stand-alone books, I wouldn’t recommend this subscription box.
