About the Book- An Enchantment of Ravens

Every enchantment has a price.

With a flick of her paintbrush, Isobel creates stunning portraits for a dangerous set of clients: the fair folk. These immortal creatures cannot bake bread or put a pen to paper without crumbling to dust. They crave human Craft with a terrible thirst, and they trade valuable enchantments for Isobel’s paintings. But when she receives her first royal patron—Rook, the autumn prince—Isobel makes a deadly mistake. She paints mortal sorrow in his eyes, a weakness that could cost him his throne, and even his life.

Furious, Rook spirits Isobel away to his kingdom to stand trial for her crime. But something is seriously amiss in his world, and they are attacked from every side. With Isobel and Rook depending upon each other for survival, their alliance blossoms into trust, perhaps even love . . . a forbidden emotion that would violate the fair folks’ ruthless laws, rendering both their lives forfeit. What force could Isobel’s paintings conjure that is powerful enough to defy the ancient malice of the fairy courts?

Isobel and Rook journey along a knife-edge in a lush world where beauty masks corruption and the cost of survival might be more frightening than death itself.

Goodreads Page

If you have read your share of romances and Paranormal romances, you could see how the book is going to end up from the first page. I did too. That is why I thought it might be another village belle falling for the beast. But what I didn’t expect is the execution. It was so wickedly good.

Our Review of An Enchantment of Ravens

Finally, the day came when this book dropped its dusty little position of TBR to the coveted read shelf 😛. I had this book for ages as a TBR yet never actually got to it. I am so happy that I eventually did and the book was an absolute delight. I read this book in two phases. Started it out as an audiobook and decided it to be too good to be just heard so I continued it then in kindle. I, for some reason, expected it to be a bit on the cliche side, and let us be honest it does in terms of its base plot but the treatment and narration are so unique that it blew my mind with how different it sounded for a plot that is not so different. Well, I can’t explain it without giving away spoilers. So let us just underline by saying that it is good.

If you have read your share of romances and Paranormal romances, you could see how the book is going to end up from the first page. I did too. That is why I thought it might be another village belle falling for the beast. But what I didn’t expect is the execution. It was so wickedly good. It brought out so many exciting elements making it an actual adventure ride. I think that’s why this book feels so refreshingly different. Because it is filled with adventurous events rather than central characters getting into monologues at different locations. There is no alpha male or beta female or vice versa. I loved how the book doesn’t want to satiate every taste and make a mess. It keeps its female and male with their flaws and strengths and not being over the top.

The book has an amazing flow to it which makes the book extremely immersive and enjoyable. The pace of the book is smooth, exhilarating and filled with surprises. The narration and the language just add to the charm and quality of the book. I wouldn’t claim that the book is extraordinary but yes I would claim that the book does make ordinary, extra special. Now that I think about it,🧐 I believe I did say the same thing for her other book, Sorcery of Thorns. So that only proves that the author does have magic in her writing 😜

Conclusion

So in conclusion, if on reading the plot of the book, you felt that the book may sound like any other paranormal romance, then trust me when I say that the treatment makes all the difference. The book has an adventurous journey and the way reaches its final destination ( which admit it we all had seen it coming) makes all the difference and the book an absolute fun.
