My Ilumicrate box came today! I am so excited to share it with you.
The Howler is a unique one-time curated box inspired by Pierce Brown’s books Red Rising, Golden Son, Morning Star. It includes 10 items, a hardback copy of the brand new Iron Gold, and exclusive publisher swag.
I paid £59.99 British Pounds which translates to 106.53 Canadian Dollars plus shipping cost $17.79.
If you’ve not read the books yet and don’t know the significance of The Howlers, they are a group of remarkable characters who help Darrow fight a war against the Government ruling power made up of different colours which are all enslaved to the Golds. Darrow is a Red who rebels against the authority that keeps everyone enthralled. . . Octavia au Lune basically. The Howlers can be identified by the wolf cloaks they wear and tend to howl before going into battle. Sevro is their leader. Sevro is also Darrow’s favourite best friend. There is a giant called Ragnar Volarus, Mustang, his love interest after his wife EO dies, Victra au Julii to name a few.
