For once it wasn't my fault this post was delayed, indeed it was no one's fault. Unfortunately, the shipping of the Fairyloot March boxes was affected by the Covid-19 situation. But, it's here now and it's one of my favourites to date. March's theme was Break the Curse and features some of my favourite items we've ever received.
I've never heard of this book, or the author before but I love the sound of the synopsis. That cover, just gorgeous. The art work on the reverse of the dust jacket was by dianadworak.
**Synopsis taken from the book**
They alone can keep the dead from preying on the living. But their power to ferry the spirits of the dead into goddess Elara's Night Heavens or Tyrus's Underworld comes from sacrifice. The gods demand a promise of dedication - at the cost of the Bone Crier's one true love.
Ailesse has been prepared since birth to become the matriarch of the Bone Criers. But first she must complete her right of passage and kill the boy she's also destined to love.
Bastien's father was slain by a Bone Crier and he's been seeking revenge ever since. But his vengeance comes too late. Ailesse's ritual has begun and now their fates are entwined - in life and in death.
Sabine has never had the stomach for the Bone Criers' work. But when her best friend, Ailesse, is taken captive, Sabine will do whatever it takes to break the bond between Ailesse and Bastien. Before they all die.
I don't think I'll ever need to buy another notepad again, I've got plenty to keep me going. It's such a gorgeous design on this but also lovely feeling paper! This was designed by catarinabookdesigns also.
The final item was a last minute edition. This beautiful postcard from a favourite place of the book world. It had a heartfelt message on the back regarding our current situation. It was such a lovely surprise and needed.
