Feb 2019: Twisted Tales


Out of stock

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” – Neil Gaiman

This February, we bring you a theme steeped in folklore and familiar stories…

A theme that puts the ordinary into the extraordinary…

A theme that evokes wonder…

This month, The Book Case presents…TWISTED TALES.

Our featured novel in February is a contemporary, fantasy retelling of a classic fairytale! An incredible contrast between the world we know and a fantasy realm we wish we did, this is a wonderfully written, beautifully nostalgic story about a fierce heroine, a cursed prince, and a kingdom on the very edge of ruin! If you’ve been looking for an epic and emotional fantasy novel with a touch of reality, a world of magic, intense action scenes, a dash of romance and a cliffhanger ending that you’ll never expect, then this one is for you!

This month’s case will also be packed with all of your favourite fairytale-inspired goodies! Think of Beauty and the Beast and Little Red Riding Hood, just to name a few! This is a case filled with wonder and excitement!

Order now. Limited cases available. Cases ship out on the last day of February.

Add-on: Folk of the Air – ‘Cruel Prince’ – Holly Black


Out of stock

An instant bestseller!

By #1 New York Times bestselling author Holly Black, the first book in a stunning new series about a mortal girl who finds herself caught in a web of royal faerie intrigue. 

Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.

And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.

Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she, and her two sisters, were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.

To win a place at the Court, she must defy him—and face the consequences. In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.

Please note that this book is the paperback version!
