Tales Retold – July 2021
This month we got Six Crimson Cranes by Elizabeth Lim.
This exclusive hardback edition comes with:
- an exclusive cover
- stencil and sprayed edges
- foil embossing on the case by Sallteas
- illustration on the back of the dust jacket by Sallteas
- signed by the author!
Shiori, the only princess of Kiata, has a secret. Forbidden magic runs through her veins. Normally she conceals it well, but on the morning of her betrothal ceremony, Shiori loses control. At first, her mistake seems like a stroke of luck, forestalling the wedding she never wanted, but it also catches the attention of Raikama, her stepmother.
Raikama has dark magic of her own, and she banishes the young princess, turning her brothers into cranes, and warning Shiori that she must speak of it to no one: for with every word that escapes her lips, one of her brothers will die.
Peniless, voiceless, and alone, Shiori searches for her brothers, and, on her journey, uncovers a conspiracy to overtake the throne—a conspiracy more twisted and deceitful, more cunning and complex, than even Raikama’s betrayal. Only Shiori can set the kingdom to rights, but to do so she must place her trust in the very boy she fought so hard not to marry. And she must embrace the magic she’s been taught all her life to contain—no matter what it costs her.
With the book, we got a beautiful illustration on the other side of the letter from the author designed by Sallteas!
Here’s the foil embossing on the book by Sallteas! Probably one of the best ones to date! So much detail and a beautiful color!
Here’s the beautiful illustration on the back of the dust jacket also designed by Sallteas.
The stencil of the cranes and the sprayed edges are gorgeous! I love stencils even more than just a color.
And finally the author’s signature! This is probably one of the most costumized and beautiful books so far, but then again I say that every time… >.<
Starting the items with some socks inspired by Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron. These were designed by Catarinabookdesigns.
And a beautiful umbrella inspired by Hartless by Marissa Mayer and designed by Fairyloot!
Here are the items in more detail! Aren’t they gorgeous?!
Next we got a beautiful book sleeve with an updated material (same one used in their pencil cases), inspired by the main characters from The Blood of Stars duopoly by Elizabeth Lin. This was designed by Rosiethorns88!
We got another one of their bookish tins with a quote from Sarah J. Maas and designed by Chattynora and it’s a beautiful blue metallic color!
We got a beautiful foiled print featuring Maya from The Star-Touched Queen Series by Roshani Chokshi and illustrated by Kavon Kayleigh!
This month we got Queen and King of Wands! they are inspired by none other than the Caraval Series by Stephanie Garber! They are so freaking beautiful! they were designed by morgana0anagrom!
This box was beautiful. My favorite items were probably the book and the umbrella! Loved the color scheme for this box too!
Next theme will be…
Romances that pull on your heartstrings are the best kind, whether it wrecks you or completes you! This theme is inspired by characters that fall in love without expecting to, which can lead to wholesome… or sometimes angsty entanglements.
In this box you can expect items inspired by Cemetary Boys, Caraval, These Violent Delights and A River of Royal Blood. We are thrilled to reveal that this box will have TWO books! The second book is a paperback with an EXCLUSIVE COVER, SPRAYED EDGES and a DIGITAL SIGNATURE. We won’t be revealing the title of this amazing book but we will give you this hint: reaper romance!
Our featured book of the month is a sexy, action-packed fantasy about a girl who is caught between two treacherous faerie courts. The FairyLoot exclusive edition will have an EXCLUSIVE COVER, STENCIL & SPRAYED EDGES, ARTWORK ON THE REVERSE OF THE DUST JACKET by @sashac_art, FOIL EMBOSSING ON THE CASE by @sashac_art and will be SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.
