In a land where magic is outlawed, eight criminals led by seventeen-year-old Larkin are sent on a mission to kill an ancient evil that plagues their kingdom. Descending into an underground realm full of unspeakable horrors, Larkin and her party must use their forbidden magic to survive what lies in wait, teeth sharp and jaws deadly.
As she fights for her life, Larkin finds a light in Amias, a fellow outlaw with a notorious past. Soon Larkin and Amias realize their fates are entwined. The eight of them were chosen for a reason.
But as the dangers multiply and her band of felons are picked off one by one, Larkin must confront a terrible truth: They were never meant to return.
Sarah Harian crafts a thrilling, high-octane fantasy adventure that explores the often-thin line between light and darkness, good and evil.
Lost in Austen
About the Box:
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue meets Jane Austen in this witty, winking historical romance with a dash of mystery!
Lady Victoria Aston has everything she could want: an older sister happily wed, the future of her family estate secure, and ample opportunity to while her time away in the fields around her home.
But now Vicky must marry—or find herself and her family destitute. Armed only with the wisdom she has gained from her beloved novels by Jane Austen, she enters society’s treacherous season.
Sadly, Miss Austen has little to say about Vicky’s exact circumstances: whether the roguish Mr. Carmichael is indeed a scoundrel, if her former best friend, Tom Sherborne, is out for her dowry or for her heart, or even how to fend off the attentions of the foppish Mr. Silby, he of the unfortunate fashion sensibility.
Most unfortunately of all, Vicky’s books are silent on the topic of the mysterious accidents cropping up around her…ones that could prevent her from surviving until her wedding day.
Tales of Trickery
About the Box:
We’re very excited to be announcing our upcoming December theme early! With the holiday season right around the corner we thought it may help to know both of the November and December themes in advance.
🎭 The theme for December is TALES OF TRICKERY!!
🎭 Our December box is inspired by stories where things are not what they seem. It’s a light hearted and fun box all about characters with tricks up their sleeves, and plot twists that kept you guessing!
🎭 Our book pick for December is a twisted tale inspired by King Arthur. It features an unreliable main character, a dark forest, people in disguise and more. This beloved author has made the story entirely their own and had us guessing until the final page!
🎭 We are including a beautiful exclusive edition, which will have an EXCLUSIVE COVER and EXCLUSIVE FOIL DESIGN on the hardcover! The book will also be SIGNED by the author!
🎭 You will find goodies inspired by Caraval, Sorcery of Thorns, Sky in the Deep, and Grace and Fury (all of which are past OwlCrate books with epic twists and turns!). There will also be a few really cool bookish items that aren’t based off of fandoms.
🎭 Already subscribed to OwlCrate? Your December box will be reserved for you – no need to sign up again. Just make sure your payment info is up to date and your subscription is active, so that you have a successful renewal on December 1st!
🎭 We hope you’re as excited as we are for the December theme. We’re ending the year with a bang and we can’t wait to ship these boxes out!

From New York Times bestselling author Kiersten White comes a new fantasy series reimagining the Arthurian legend, set in the magical world of Camelot.
There was nothing in the world as magical and terrifying as a girl.
Princess Guinevere has come to Camelot to wed a stranger: the charismatic King Arthur. With magic clawing at the kingdom’s borders, the great wizard Merlin conjured a solution–send in Guinevere to be Arthur’s wife . . . and his protector from those who want to see the young king’s idyllic city fail. The catch? Guinevere’s real name–and her true identity–is a secret. She is a changeling, a girl who has given up everything to protect Camelot.
To keep Arthur safe, Guinevere must navigate a court in which the old–including Arthur’s own family–demand things continue as they have been, and the new–those drawn by the dream of Camelot–fight for a better way to live. And always, in the green hearts of forests and the black depths of lakes, magic lies in wait to reclaim the land. Arthur’s knights believe they are strong enough to face any threat, but Guinevere knows it will take more than swords to keep Camelot free.
Deadly jousts, duplicitous knights, and forbidden romances are nothing compared to the greatest threat of all: the girl with the long black hair, riding on horseback through the dark woods toward Arthur. Because when your whole existence is a lie, how can you trust even yourself?
