An Enchantment of Ravens
Isobel is renowned for her portrait painting, and the beautiful, deadly fair folk are her most prestigious patrons, being unable to engage in any creative craft themselves without losing their immortality. She has perfected her dealings with them and their tricksy wish-granting—until the day she paints human emotion into the Autumn Prince’s eyes—a weakness—and must stand trial for her treachery.
An Enchantment of Ravens is a romance more than an adventure or fantasy, the story of a forbidden love between a human and a Fae prince. The beginning of the relationship is unclear, bordering on instalove, but once the book starts moving, author Margaret Rogerson amps up the swoon factor, and many readers will find themselves rooting for Isobel and her lover to beat impossible odds. The story also has a lush setting, inspired by traditional Fae lore, though sometimes it seems Rogerson throws a lot of world-building elements at readers at once. The book does not necessarily stand out in the YA market, but fans of YA Fae romances will enjoy adding it to their collection.
