Our first book of 2024 is a romantic fantasy filled with scandals and secrets. In A Fragile Enchantment, our protagonist Niamh jumps at the chance to design the wedding attire for the prince and arrives at Avaland full of hope. Instead, she finds unrest among the working class and a prickly and abrasive groom-to-be, Kit, who she can’t help but get close to. As she tries navigating this unruly kingdom, she finds herself in the middle of a scandal with Kit, all while trying to maintain her magic and survive.

Our signed edition features a beautiful redesigned exclusive cover created by @no0nedesigns and designed by @lichen_and_limestone with pretty pink edges and a green ribbon bookmark!

Turn over the cover for the reversible jacket with gorgeous artwork by @giannyfili. You’ll also find an exclusive foil stamp on the hardcover case created by @lichen_and_limestone.

What do I do if one of my items arrived damaged?

We are sorry to hear one of your items was damaged in shipping. We do our best to make sure everything is packed safely and securely in your box but things can get bumped about in transit.


Damaged Item:

If you have a damaged item, please send a clear photo or two of the damages to  support@owlcrate.com. We will be happy to send a replacement. 


Damaged Books:

Though we aim to send out books in the best condition possible, small dings are very common to any books shipped, and even those found on the shelves in bookstores. Books are shipped many times - from the printer to us, and then from us to you. If you feel your book is damaged, please send an email and a photo of the issue to customer support and we will be happy to take a look.


When emailing support, please let us know the email address attached to your account so we can easily find your order and shipping address.
