An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson has an absolutely beautiful cover! I can’t believe I haven’t featured this book yet! Every time I see it, I am all hearteyes over it! I have been into books about the fae since forever…I can’t even think of the first one I ever read, that would take research. This feels like it has a wholly unique take on the fae and their interactions with the human race. Or more importantly the human Craft that they themselves have no ability in creating. Not only is this cover stunninly gorgeous but the plot has me so intrigued I may have to bump reading this one ASAP! An Enchantment of Ravens is releasing on September 26th, be sure to add this beauty to your TBR!
An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson
Category: Young Adult, Fantasy
Publication: September 26th, 2017; Margaret K. McElderry Books
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.
