Book Summary from Amazon:
An atmospheric and romantic debut fantasy perfect for fans of Ash and The Winner’s Curse.
Betrothed since childhood to the prince of Mynaria, Princess Dennaleia has always known what her future holds. Her marriage will seal the alliance between Mynaria and her homeland, protecting her people from other hostile kingdoms. But Denna has a secret. She possesses an Affinity for fire—a dangerous gift for the future queen of a land where magic is forbidden.
Now Denna has to learn the ways of her new kingdom while trying to hide her growing magic. To make matters worse, she must learn to ride Mynaria’s formidable warhorses before her coronation—and her teacher is the person who intimidates her most, the prickly and unconventional Princess Amaranthine, sister of her betrothed.
When a shocking assassination leaves the kingdom reeling, Mare and Denna reluctantly join forces to search for the culprit. As the two work together, they discover there is more to one another than they thought—and soon their friendship is threatening to blossom into something more.
But with dangerous conflict brewing that makes the alliance more important than ever, acting on their feelings could be deadly. Forced to choose between their duty and their hearts, Mare and Denna must find a way to save their kingdoms—and each other.
And this book also came with a letter from the author. Now for the rest of the items!
Game of Thrones Coasters – Value $13
We are Game of Thrones fans, so this set was a hit!
And the backs are cork, too.
Harry Potter Funko Mystery Mini Vinyl Figure – Value $8
I love when OwlCrate includes Funko items in boxes – they are always so cute… except for this time!
I was really hoping for Harry or Dobby! Oh well! Which figure did you get?
This is an exclusive greeting card (blank inside) made just for OwlCrate subscribers. (And more good news for Harry Potter fans – she has a ton of Harry Potter designs in her shop!)
Jane Mount Lord of the Rings Book Pin – Value $11
This enamel pin is so cute, and I just discovered there are Harry Potter book pins in her shop, too!
A Darker Shade of Magic Quote Sticker
I absolutely LOVE this book, and Delilah Bard – this is my new favorite sticker!
And each OwlCrate box now comes with an exclusive pin to match the theme!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $55 (using the Amazon sale prices and my estimates of some of these exclusive items). I think that’s a great value for a book box, especially with the curation, exclusive items, and bonus book extras that OwlCrate includes each month.
I’m having a hard time getting into the book. I’m about 100 pages in, and it still isn’t grabbing me yet. If you’ve finished this book and recommend it, let me know and I’ll power through!
What do you think of the December OwlCrate box?
