Read An Enchantment of Ravens Online Free - Isobel is a prodigy portrait artist with a dangerous set of clients: the sinister fair folk, immortal creatures who cannot bake bread, weave cloth, or put a pen to paper without crumbling to dust. They crave human Craft with a terrible thirst, and Isobel’s paintings are highly prized among them. But when she receives her first royal patron—Rook, the autumn prince—she makes a terrible mistake. She paints mortal sorrow in his eyes – a weakness that could cost him his life.
Furious and devastated, Rook spirits her away to the autumnlands to stand trial for her crime. Waylaid by the Wild Hunt’s ghostly hounds, the tainted influence of the Alder King, and hideous monsters risen from barrow mounds, Isobel and Rook depend on one another for survival. Their alliance blossoms into trust, then love, violating the fair folks’ ruthless Good Law. There's only one way to save both their lives, Isobel must drink from the Green Well, whose water will transform her into a fair one—at the cost of her Craft, for immortality is as stagnant as it is timeless.
Isobel has a choice: she can sacrifice her art for a future, or arm herself with paint and canvas against the ancient power of the fairy courts. Because secretly, her Craft represents a threat the fair folk have never faced in all the millennia of their unchanging lives: for the first time, her portraits have the power to make them feel.

This wasn't like me. So many years of being cautious, and in a matter of minutes I'd started slipping up.
An Enchantment of Ravens is not badly-written, but it is definitely not a book for me. I really wish I'd read some reviews before starting it and noted the comparison to A Court of Thorns an...

Margaret Rogerson was born to write.
This was my most anticipated novel of the year, and I nearly cried when it showed up on my doorstep. So first and foremost, thank you, Simon and Schuster, for sending me a gorgeous physical copy that I will take 10 billion photos of.
This is the type of story t...

Let me preface this review by letting you all know that all I want in this lif...

I just read the most wonderful book! Oh, how fun it was to get my Fae on 😊
Isobel lives in Whimsy with Emma and the two adopted little girls.
Isobel is a most wonderful painter, this is her craft. She paints for the fae. Her most regular client over the years is Gadfly.

There's a cocky fae prince of the autumn court who can shapeshift into a raven.
This book seriously had every element I was looking for and just makes me SO happy. I wish it was September now so I could read this with pretty autumn colors outside!
The basic idea: Isobel is a painter who's kidnapped...

I was gladdened by the sight of those vicious thorns more than I could say, and wondered whether the stories would have gone any differently if the princesses had been the ones telling them.
A book about star-crossed lovers, art, and a fae prince who shape shifts into a raven?...

Disclaimer: This book is a spring banquet of ripe grapefruit wine, a summer morning beneath swaying willow trees, an autumnal bonfire deep in the woods, and a wintry dusk backset to the wind.
….At least it made me feel that way. Rogerson killed the imagery game. It was glorious.
I’ve been waiting...

My written interview with the author can be found here. There's a question regarding SJM and ACOTAR. Tee-hee.
Thank you, Simon & Schuster, for giving me an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I have never met anyone more frustrating, or brave, or beautiful. I love you. —Rook

“Where are half-stars when you need them?”
- Katerina, A Frustrated Goodreader
An Enchantment of Ravens is a great example of why half-stars are essential. It does not deserve 3 stars. It was ideal to make my mind drift and explore uncharted territories, to forget all those tiny and huge daily thi...

Sooooo here I am. Hating on a book that is pretty much LOVED by everyone else. But… I feel no remorse? Only salt. :)
Why did I have to not like this?? Especially because it’s 1) my first ARC, 2) an extremely hyped and well-loved book, 3) THE OWNER OF SUCH A PRETTY COVER. But even though I’m wonder...
