An Enchantment of Ravens Review



True Rating: 4.5 ⭐️

*Thank you to Simon and Schuster for providing me with a copy of this book for a true and honest review.* 


Fae Princes with cocky and hilarious personalities and swoon worthy moments that make you want to jump into the book.

In this story our main character Isobel, she's a 17 year old painter who has spent most of her life indoors practicing her "craft." I quote "craft" because the author uses this word to describe everything a human practices. Isobel draws portraits of the fair folk in exchange for enchantments. Then one day she encounters a fae prince from the Autumn Court. She finds something humane in him and she draws it in her portrait not expecting it'll change everything in her near future. She is then carried away from her home in whimsy to stand trial in the autumn court. On her way there the Autumn Prince and Isobel encounter many problems. Also other things that might not be a problem at first but turn out it can cost them both their lives.

I went into this book knowing that I will love every single thing about it. The writing was so whimsical and flowed like poetry, but wasn't hard to read and understand. It was a really fast paced read, which grasped my every thought. It was so hard to put it down, without want to finish another page or another chapter.
I really loved the world in this book, I loved the different courts based on seasons. I loved that I could see every little detail she described in my head. Also the smell of the wind or the characters I could imagine a candle burning in my room that smelled just like Autumn winds. Which btw I would love a candle of like right now (candle companies please). I loved how the fair folk were described and how not only were they terrifying, but the mortals wanted to be around them a the same time.

I also thought the characters were portrayed really well. Isobel was a strong female lead, who knew exactly what she wanted. She was also quick to think in hard situations instead of dreading every moment she was in danger. And oh the Autumn Prince how I loved his cocky comments and how hilarious every moment with him and Isobel was.

Overall, I enjoyed this book and thought it was one of the best books I've read this year. It would have gotten a five star review if it want for that last chapter. I felt like it went too fast and I needed more details. I felt like everything was just over. As if I wasn't given what I needed to depart from the book walking away. Instead I was grabbed by the collar and kicked out the door.

I hope maybe there will be more to this and I'll get that feeling of completeness with this world. I'd really love to read more in this world. I would love to read more about these characters. Margaret Rogerson did an amazing job, and I'd love to read more writings from her.
