We are super excited to reveal that our April CURSED KINGDOMS box will include an exclusive item by…
We are thrilled to announce that our April CURSED KINGDOMS box will feature a gorgeous exclusive item, perfect for all book-lovers, illustrated by Cathrin Peterslund!
We are so lucky that Cathrin approached us a few months ago to ask about working together on a project. We were immediately struck by Cathrin’s artwork, because not only is her style gorgeously detailed, but her imagery is packed with storytelling! When we started planning our CURSED KINGDOMS box, we knew we she’d be the perfect fit.
Cathrin studied comics and illustration at The Animation Workshop (Denmark) where she graduated with a BA in Graphic Storytelling, and has since then worked as a freelance illustrator in Copenhagen.
The item that she has designed for our April box is something that we’ve never included in one of our boxes before. It’s going to be GORGEOUS, useful and is sure to be adored by all book-lovers!
If you’re yet to sign up for our April CURSED KINGDOMS box, what are you waiting for? Here’s a quick reminder of everything we’ve told you about this awesome box so far…
Our April box will feature TWO brilliant YA fantasy new releases. These stunning paperbacks will arrive beautifully gift wrapped and accompanied by signed bookplates from the authors!
Book 1 is set in a richly imagined world, where a young girl, harbouring a dark and terrible secret, is sent to join the royal council. A magical wish compels her to kill the young Crown Prince and tear the ancient traditions of the empire apart – but is she strong enough to defy her own destiny? This lusciously-written read is steeped in African mysticism, dangerous betrayals and secret romance. Fans of Children of Blood & Bone and City of Brass will be sure to adore it as much as we did!
Book 2 is an action-packed reimagining of a dark fairytale. In a series of strange events, a brave young princess finds her fate and identity interchanged with that of a cruel maid. Now demoted to a surprisingly contented life of servitude, the princess must reclaim her position, or her kingdom and the prince she is destined to marry, will be doomed! With high stakes, unforgettable friendships and fairytale vibes, this book is sure to be a hit with fans of Katherine Arden’s Winternight trilogy!
In addition to an exclusive item designed by CATHRIN PETERSLUND, Book Box Club subscribers will also receive a curated selection of bookish goodies fit for royalty. As ever, we’ve put together a box crammed with bespoke gifts created by small business and craftspeople and inspired by some of our favourite fictional Cursed Kingdoms.
All members will be invited to join us for a (hopefully curse-free) book group in our online kingdom/Clubhouse. You’ll get the chance to chat with both authors of our featured reads, ask your questions about this month’s books (or pretty much anything else) and make new bookish friends!
If you love the idea of a brilliant new read and membership to an exclusive author book group, but bookish extras aren’t your thing, you can still join in the fun. Check out our PURELY BOOKS subscription. Our books-only parcels include the same great featured read and membership to our awesome online book group, just without the extra themed accessories.
Purely Books members will receive both featured reads for April
