Dreamers and Fairies is a brand new book box that I found on Instagram (like every other box). I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but they blew me out of the water! To start off with, the box arrived wrapped in parchment paper (and a looooooot of tape), which was so adorable. The first thing I saw when I pulled the lid open was an envelope stamped shut with a wax seal (drool) containing a very sweet handwritten card thanking me for purchasing the box. The book was also wrapped in parchment paper with a twine string wrapped around like a present, and I was so upset with myself for not taking pictures of everything as it came (but don’t worry, I remembered for the February box – coming soon!) So basically, they got the aesthetic thing down pat on the first try!
Here’s what was inside:
Everything has a spirit: the willow tree with leaves that kiss the pond, the stream that feeds the river, the wind that exhales fresh snow . . .
But the spirits that reside within this land want to rid it of all humans. One woman stands between these malevolent spirits and the end of humankind: the queen. She alone has the magical power to prevent the spirits from destroying every man, woman, and child. But queens are still just human, and no matter how strong or good, the threat of danger always looms.
With the position so precarious, young women are chosen to train as heirs. Daleina, a seemingly quiet academy student, is under no illusions as to her claim to the throne, but simply wants to right the wrongs that have befallen the land. Ven, a disgraced champion, has spent his exile secretly fighting against the growing number of spirit attacks. Joining forces, these daring partners embark on a treacherous quest to find the source of the spirits’ restlessness—a journey that will test their courage and trust, and force them to stand against both enemies and friends to save their land . . . before it’s bathed in blood.
And one more, actually last thing included was a playlist to listen to as you read the book. I went ahead and put the playlist together on Spotify. I haven’t actually listened to it yet, but it looks like my kind of music, and I’ve seen a lot of people saying they really like it.
