Descrizione

A skilled painter must stand up to the ancient power of the faerie courts—even as she falls in love with a faerie prince—in this gorgeous debut novel.

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. 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—and that love violates the fair folks' ruthless laws. Now both of their lives are forfeit, unless Isobel can use her skill as an artist to fight 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.

  • There's no more perfect fantasy to read this fall than the much-buzzed-about "An Enchantment of Ravens," where the autumn faerie prince kidnaps an illustrious human portrait artist and takes her to the autumnlands. A forbidden romance ensues.

  • (4/5)
    A lovely fantasy that leaves you wanting more. Loved rooting for Isobel and Rook. I wish they’d make an illustrated version.

    3,5 ? rounded up. This book has beautiful prose,a very likeable MC ,a lush,dark and delicious world, some great dialouge and is written with a sence of humour and a magical atmosphere. It had so many things I appreciated, and I liked it so so much more than for example A court of Thorns and Roses ( or a Cort of Stupid MC and Toxic Hypermasculinity,as I like to call it) .I've seen people compare the two,and I think everything I found wrong about ACOTAR ,Rogerson managed to do different,and right in this one. But I also can't help comparing it to Sorcery of thorns, Rogersons recent release. And knowing how incredible that one was, this one left me a bit underwhelmed. I think it was well worth reading, or in this case listening to on audiobook, but the pacing and how the plot was build up,was pretty weak compared to the wonderful Sorcery of thorns. You can easily tell from this debut,that Rogerson is a talentet writer. And realizing just how much her talent developed between her first and second book,it almost makes med giddy to think about what her next book will bring!

    Boring as hell. This book was a huge disappointment. Plot was not there. Characters felt as they were not present for what was happening.
  • (5/5)
    It’s the third time listening to this book and probably won’t be the last. Just love it. I still find myself laughing out loud at parts and can imagine all the courts throughout the book. The sweet moments in between makes me come back to it.

    Overall I really enjoyed this book. I thought the romance in it was the weakest point. It suffered from instant love that didn't feel earned at all. But the overall plot was good and there were some really excellent scenes. I loved the portrayal of the fey 'fair folk' and their courts. I think the best part of the book is Margaret Rogerson's writing style. It is so beautiful but easy to read. I think she is a phenomenal writer and I'm excited to see what she writes next!

    One of my favorite books of all time!! Simply genius!!
  • (5/5)
    It’s a very like chill read. Definitely worth it and honestly it’s super cute. I feel like it’s a summarized version of the a court trilogy but it’s *chefs kiss*

    This was an interesting story! I liked Isobel and Rook and enjoyed the story and I don’t usually enjoy books about fae. However, I didn’t enjoy it as much as I enjoyed Sorcery of Thorns.
  • (3/5)
    I think it is a fine book for a debut novel. It lacks certain coherency but compensates for it with tons of charm and whimsy. Given my experience with this book and "Sorcery of Thorns," the author has a knack for creating a captivating atmosphere and I love it!

    I'm still confused as to why the concept of "an enchantment of ravens" was important enough to make it the title. It almost doesn't get mentioned throughout the story and doesn't hold much significance for the plot at large. It just is there. I think it was supposed to be something bigger but didn't get all the attention and development it needed. I commend the author for the romantic scenes, though. They tend to be my favourite and it's surprisingly hard to spoil them.

    First, Julia Whelan is one of my absolute favorite voice actors. Thank you.

    I really enjoyed this book. Its a simple fantasy romance, but, it was set in a really lovely world of the faye. It was an easy read and I look forward to more of this writer's works.

    Welll this is ok for me, though I like the world built up, but not really engaged to the romance between Rook and Isobel.
  • (5/5)
    This is officially my new favorite book! I’m glad I bought it a few years ago but want to slap myself for waiting until now to read this amazing masterpiece! I devour every page of this beautifully written book. The writing style is amazing and had me hanging off of every single word as I read.
    I couldn’t bring myself to put it down not wanting to miss a single thing.
    Sadly it’s only a stand alone book but even so I loved it!
    I highly recommend it to anyone who loves painting, adventure, fantasy and just a hint of romance.

    This is a queen that we have all been waiting for. STRUT YOUR STUFF BOO.
  • (3/5)
    Its a cute fae short story (kind of immature at times so perfect for a much younger audience), but not much depth to the characters. I could have liked it more if the plot were exciting and the characters were more intelligent. The ending was a major let down - overall kind of a boring read.
  • (5/5)
    I laughed out loud so many times while listening to this. Margaret Rogerson has become a new favourite author for me and I really cannot wait to see what she writes next.

  • (5/5)
    A quick, immersive and sweet fairytale with a unique take on fae.
  • (5/5)
    Beautiful and gripping story. Favorite book of the year!
  • (3/5)
    People kind of oversell. Or not. I don't know.. ACODAR series did not do me good so I feel underwhelmed about fae.. i wanna try reread this, probably I'd feel better about it because honestly, Isabel is way better than Feyra
