Illumicrate unboxing – High Stakes, September 2019 – Spoilers @illumicrate

September’s Illumicrate was the theme of HIGH STAKES and it was a homage to saving us from the end of the world, dangerous quests and those that just never give up! The book is freaking amazing and was one I was eyeing up whilst I was in Waterstones last week. This edition is just freaking outstanding. This is my first box and it certainly didn’t disapoint. I loved every little trinket and collectable in it. I JUST LOVED IT ALL!

Check out all the items below.



This month’s book was Kingdom of Souls by Rena Barron, and I’ve heard so many positive things about in Book Twitter. Its a signed edition with a beautifully sprayed edge (it’s a snake) and is just a beautiful edition. I’m very excited to read it.


Magic has a price—if you’re willing to pay.

Born into a family of powerful witchdoctors, Arrah yearns for magic of her own. But each year she fails to call forth her ancestral powers, while her ambitious mother watches with growing disapproval.

There’s only one thing Arrah hasn’t tried, a deadly last resort: trading years of her own life for scraps of magic. Until the Kingdom’s children begin to disappear, and Arrah is desperate to find the culprit.

She uncovers something worse. The long-imprisoned Demon King is stirring. And if he rises, his hunger for souls will bring the world to its knees… unless Arrah pays the price for the magic to stop him. 


This is such a vibrant and geeky travel mug and it makes my heart happy. It’s called NOW WE RISE and was inspired by Children of Blood and Bone – Artwork by Jess Taylor.

We all love those books with characters that have unique powers, cool powers, scary powers. this month’s book definitely falls into this category!

Our October book is a crossover fantasy from a well known and beloved author. When a powerful girl awakens from a century-long sleep, she is determined to use her powers to achieve an impossible goal…no matter the cost. We loved the rich fantasy world and the unique magic system in this story! Our Illumicrate edition will have exclusive sprayed edges and is signed by the author!

Items this month are inspired by Shatter Me, The Raven Boys, Vicious, The Poppy War and Sabriel! We’ll be including one of our gorgeous signature tin storage items this month, and we have some exciting reveals to come!
