About the Book

Can you spot a lie? You’ll need a keen eye this January! Prepare yourself for mystery, alluring magic, a spicy does of romance, and a mystic summoning with our January title! When our protagonist deceives a kingdom, her heart is filled with revenge—her actions calculated and determined. If only she wasn’t distracted by a kind stranger. Though she soon finds out that nobody is truly who they claim to be. January’s book truly is a tapestry of interwoven deception, danger, and passion!

JANUARY Sneak Peeks

Note: The author is also our dust jacket artist, so we will not be sneak peeking a book artist this month. ;)

Artist Sneak Peek:

We are so thrilled to be working once again with designer Evie Seo! @eviebookish has created artwork for a full-sized pillowcase, included in every Crate and Item-Only product! The design features the fandom Strange the Dreamer, and is truly dreamy for all readers!

Artist Sneak Peek:

How could we curate a theme like STARRY NIGHT and not feature an item inspired by The Darkling?! This January we teamed up with artist to design a useful item, stunning item, with a nod to The Cult of the Starless!

Artist Clue:
The Book's Author
