June 2020 Young Adult Subscription Box Spoilers

FairyLoot
A Different Kind of Magic

About the box:

We all love magic and this month we wanted to celebrate unique magic systems − magic that is a little out of the ordinary, or not quite what you have come to expect. The types of magic that make you think, that make you wonder, that make you wish!

You can expect items inspired by The Bone Season, Avatar The Last AirbenderThe Starless SeaThe Shadows Between UsAlice in Wonderland and Blood Heir! We are thrilled to reveal that this box will have TWO BOOKS! The second book in this box is a YA release that won’t be released until spring 2021… and this beautiful paperback edition will have an EXCLUSIVE FOIL-FILLED COVER and SPRAYED EDGES!

Our featured book of the month is a tale of destiny and sisterhood, filled with shaman magic. In this epic story, newly awakened abilities are tested as darkness looms and the kingdom is on the brink of war. This FairyLoot exclusive edition will have an EXCLUSIVE COVER, ARTWORK ON THE REVERSE OF THE DUST JACKET and will be SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR!

My Guess:

Forest of Sould

From Goodreads:

Danger lurks within the roots of Forest of Souls, an epic, unrelenting tale of destiny and sisterhood, perfect for fans of Naomi Novik and Susan Dennard.

Sirscha Ashwyn comes from nothing, but she’s intent on becoming something. After years of training to become the queen’s next royal spy, her plans are derailed when shamans attack and kill her best friend Saengo.

And then Sirscha, somehow, restores Saengo to life.

Unveiled as the first soulguide in living memory, Sirscha is summoned to the domain of the Spider King. For centuries, he has used his influence over the Dead Wood—an ancient forest possessed by souls—to enforce peace between the kingdoms. Now, with the trees growing wild and untamed, only a soulguide can restrain them. As war looms, Sirscha must master her newly awakened abilities before the trees shatter the brittle peace, or worse, claim Saengo, the friend she would die for.

Sisters of Sword and Song

From Goodreads:

From the author of The Queen’s Rising comes a thrilling YA stand-alone fantasy about the unbreakable bond between sisters. Perfect for fans of Ember in the Ashes, Sky in the Deep, and Court of Fives.

After eight long years, Evadne will finally be reunited with her older sister, Halcyon, who has been proudly serving in the queen’s army. But when Halcyon appears earlier than expected, Eva knows something has gone terribly wrong. Halcyon is on the run, hunted by her commander and charged with murder.

Though Halcyon’s life is spared during her trial, the punishment is heavy. And when Eva volunteers to serve part of Halcyon’s sentence, she’s determined to find out exactly what happened. But as Eva begins her sentence, she quickly learns that there are fates much worse than death.

My Guess:

Where Drems Descend

From Goodreads:

In a city covered in ice and ruin, a group of magicians face off in a daring game of magical feats to find the next headliner of the Conquering Circus, only to find themselves under the threat of an unseen danger striking behind the scenes.

As each act becomes more and more risky and the number of missing magicians piles up, three are forced to reckon with their secrets before the darkness comes for them next.

The Star: Kallia, a powerful showgirl out to prove she’s the best no matter the cost

The Master: Jack, the enigmatic keeper of the club, and more than one lie told

The Magician: Demarco, the brooding judge with a dark past he can no longer hide

Where Dreams Descend is the startling and romantic first book in Janella Angeles’ debut Kingdom of Cards fantasy duology where magic is both celebrated and feared, and no heart is left unscathed.

    1. I don’t have Twitter. I’m maxing myself out at FairyLoot, LitJoy Crate, and OwlCrate this month, but I appreciate the offer!

      1. No problem… I don’t really care for the YA box- but the adult book is killer. It is only the 3rd box I’m ever getting. I’m not huge on them but the book plus Nevernight stuff… i can’t pass up. It’ll be interesting to compare the adult box. If you want to know for when you do your July post let me know.
