Review: An Enchantment of Ravens is about a girl named Isobelle, who is a portrait artist for the fair folk. The fair folk are unable to do any sort of craft, meaning they can’t cook, make clothes, paint, etc. which is why they must rely on humans to do these things for them, and, in return, they give enchantments as payment. Isobelle paints a portrait for Rook, the autumn prince, but makes a grave mistake that could cost them everything they care about. Rook and Isobelle travel to the Autumn Court so Isobelle can be tried for her crimes, but they run into difficulties along the way.

I personally really liked the book and the writing style but I felt like it wasn’t long enough for me and I still have so many unanswered questions after reading it. The book wasn’t like anything I’ve ever read before and I really enjoyed the characters and the world Margaret Rogerson built. Personally, I enjoy a good open ending, but this book’s ending was a little too open for my tastes.

I would definitely recommend An Enchantment of Ravens to teens, especially since it is so short and can be read quickly. The writing style was really pleasant and the characters are absolutely amazing. It is definitely more geared towards fans of fantasy books, but I think anyone can enjoy it. The portrayal of the fair folk in this book remind me of the faeries from The Cruel Prince, so if you’re a fan of The Folk of the Air series by Holly Black, you should definitely check out An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson.
