Our November book is a historical fantasy set in nineteenth-century Egypt filled with adventure and danger. Our protagonist yearns for answers surrounding her parents' tragic deaths. After inheriting their massive fortune and being stuck with a mysterious guardian and his annoying, but handsome, assistant, she soon discovers there is more to their disappearance than those around her have led her to believe. Will she discover the truth or become a pawn in a larger game?

Our November book features old-world magic that leads our protagonist to a journey into the unknown. In What the River Knows, Inez travels to Cairo in search of answers to her parents’ deaths.

Turn over the cover for the reversible jacket, featuring gorgeous artwork by Nicoleta Stavarache (@artnicoleta). On the hardback, we have some striking foil designs done by Teresa Chen (@divineliterary).

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.
