Today I bring a book I got in a subscription box. Not Fairyloot or Illumicrate like usual – this one is from Magic Chest and I’ve had it for ages now. So long, in fact, that Magic Chest doesn’t even do subscription boxes anymore. 😂 Well, I finally got around checking it out!
The Plot (as found on Goodreads):
In the tropical kingdom of Rhodaire, magical, elemental Crows are part of every aspect of life…until the Illucian empire invades, destroying everything.
That terrible night has thrown Princess Anthia into a deep depression. Her sister Caliza is busy running the kingdom after their mother’s death, but all Thia can do is think of all she has lost.
But when Caliza is forced to agree to a marriage between Thia and the crown prince of Illucia, Thia is finally spurred into action. And after stumbling upon a hidden Crow egg in the rubble of a rookery, she and her sister devise a dangerous plan to hatch the egg in secret and get back what was taken from them.
