UNBOXING ¦ Illumicrate: Magic & Mayhem - The V.E. Schwab Edition

When I saw that Illumicrate were selling a special edition V.E. Schwab box, I debated for myself for a while before I gave in and decided to treat myself to it. I decided it was definitely not a box to be missed out on, especially since I adore everything I've read by V.E. Schwab so far, and I am very glad that I decided to make this purchase. This was such a perfect, gorgeous selection of items, including a very lovely edition of V.E. Schwab's new book, Vengeful. I've listed each item below, with a picture and link to the designer or shop that each item came from (although quite a lot of the items were exclusive to the box which was very exciting!).

Signed copy of Vengeful with a cover exclusive to the box, along with an Illumicrate designed sleeve featuring quotes from Vicious and Vengeful.

Isobel is a prodigy portrait artist with a dangerous set of clients: the sinister fair folk, immortal creatures who cannot bake bread, weave cloth, or put a pen to paper without crumbling to dust. They crave human Craft with a terrible thirst, and Isobel’s paintings are highly prized. But when she receives her first royal patron—Rook, the autumn prince—she makes a terrible mistake. She paints mortal sorrow in his eyes—a weakness that could cost him his life.
Furious and devastated, Rook spirits her away to the autumnlands to stand trial for her crime. Waylaid by the Wild Hunt’s ghostly hounds, the tainted influence of the Alder King, and hideous monsters risen from barrow mounds, Isobel and Rook depend on one another for survival.…
