Another amazing box from Fairyloot and as ever on brand I'm unboxing a little late. Personally, I blame Christmas and University deadlines. But, the end is in sight now! This months theme was Magical Folk and whilst I haven't read a lot of the books represented in this box they're ones I'm interested in and I love the merch that has been created about them.
A River of Royal Blood was not a book on my radar, at all but I love the premise and hope to read it in 2020.
**Taken from the book**
Sixteen-year-old Eva is a Princess, born with the magick of blood and marrow - a dark and terrible magick that hasn't been seen for generations in the vibrant but fratured country of Myre. Its last known practitioner was Queen Raina, who toppled the native khimaer royalty and massacred thousands, includinger her own sister, five generations ago, thus beginning the Rival Heir tradition.
Living in Raina's long dark shadow, Eva must now face her older sister, Isa, on her seventeenth nameday in a battle to the death if she hopes to acsend to the Ivory Throne - because in the Queendom of Myre, only the strongest most ruthless ruler survives.
But when Eva is attacked by an assassin just weeks before her nameday, she discovers it isn't just her sister who wants to see her dead. Eva is forced to turn to a powerful fey instructor and a mysterious and handsome khimaer prince for help in growing her magick into something to fear. Because despite the love she still has for her sister, Eva will have to choose: Isa's death or her own.
Whilst these reading journals are gorgeous I have my own bullet journal so they don't really do much for me. The art is gorgeous and the set up is always brilliant. This one was a full year journal too. All the illustrations were done by monolimeart.
So that was my November Fairyloot Unboxing!
