An Enchantment of Ravens is Margaret Rogerson’s first book. You can read my review on her second novel, Sorcery of Thorns here!
“Every enchantment has a price. Isobel is a prodigy portrait artist with a dangerous set of clients: the immortal fair folk. But when she recieves her first royal patron, the autumn prince – she makes a terrible mistake. She paints mortal sorrow in his eyes – a weakness that could cost him his life.
Furious, Rook spirits Isobel away to stand trial for her crimes. But something is seriously amiss in his world, and they are attacked from every side. Forced to depended up each other for survival, their alliance blossoms into trust, perhaps even love … a forbidden emotion that would render both their lives forfeit. What force could Isobel’s paintings conjure that is powerful enough to defy the ancient malice of the fairy courts?“

What did I Love about An Enchantment of Ravens?
I enjoyed the faerie courts! This novel is one that makes the faerie world seem truly dark and disturbing.
Could you imagine living for hundreds of years with no need for anything and you were unable to do any human craft (cooking, drawing, building etc.)
On the surface you can see the grandeur and the power but once you see below the surface you will never be able to un-see it.
I was drawn in by this world very quickly and curious to know how it ends.
If you are looking for an awesome, shorter read I definitely recommend this one.
Comparing This Book to Sorcery of Thorns
I read Sorcery of Thorns last year and really enjoyed it. So I figured I would pick up this book and see how Margaret Rogerson’s first book turned out. I do like that it had a similar plot line of the protagonist being whisked away by a potential mortal enemy.
I found that Isobel and Rook’s relationship to pull me in a bit more because of the consequences of a human and a faerie having any type of relationship. Plus, the plot twist near the end definitely made me happy.
When the Title of the Book is Clear
I am a big fan of when the title of the book plays a big part in the over all story. Sometimes you don’t understand the book title until the end but An Enchantment of Ravens comes into play very quickly.
Overall, this is a great read! It let me escape for a few hours and I hope you enjoy it too!
