Our February theme is THE CITY IS OURS! This month we’re inspired by stories┬áthat take place in cities we love or dream to visit, either real or imaginary!

Our featured book is a YA urban fantasy debut with an ensemble cast of teenagers from a magical underworld working together to stop a killer. For every murder that takes place in the human world, the fae realm is at greater risk of being discovered. Can they figure out the truth in time? This book absolutely perfect for you if you’re a fan of The Cruel Prince & Shadowhunters! We love this cast of characters, the interesting world & mythology the author created and of course, the snarky banter! Our Illumicrate edition comes with exclusive sprayed edges and is signed by the author! Plus,┬áboth our full box and book only options come with a matching pin designed by Stacey McEvoy-Caunt!

Our chosen fandoms this month are Crescent City, The Falconer, Cemetery Boys, The City We Became and Gilded Wolves! We love this mix of items: some that are perfect for when you’re out and about, and some that are gorgeous & useable! We can’t wait to bring you some reveals!
